Where I live we are on a tall hill that divides the air coming from the sea. One side the air gets pushed into a valley and the other goes south into flats. A fun geological fact, this air flow usually means the salty air stops us having much snow. Not impossible but while most in Britain get snow we get rain.
In fact I remember about 10 years ago looking at the weather map in a news paper. All of UK was covered in white, while good ol’ Bridgend was green. 😩
The last few years though snow has been pretty rare for us here, we’d have to go up the mountains (Welsh mountains = large hills, not quite mountains). Last year I don’t think we had any snow that stuck long enough to do anything.
So you can imagine my surprise looking out the window to this!
