A white Inveraray






After about a week of Britain-wide blizzard warnings that always seem to leave Inveraray with nothing more than rain (of course) we finally got some snow. In fact, we got the best snow we have seen in two winters here and from the sounds of it the best snow for quite some time.
It fell overnight and into the early morning (we are working on George time, early morning=9:30) and the day turned out to be overcast but lovely.
We went for a walk down to the front and Eva continued along to the castle almost slipping several times. The young ones of the town had already been out making snowmen and Eva caught Skye and Mark (our new Aussie neighbours) doing the same near the castle.
Even the roadworkers who have been busy tearing the main street apart for a few weeks got into the spirit of things building a snowman out the front of the hotel which they named Big D- they found a walking stick and all!
The snow didn't last for long with rain washing it all away before long but the town was transformed for a day and it was simply beautiful.
