Snow scenes in Rye, Dec 2010

It started snowing yesterday evening, and this morning it looked like this:

The side roads have the deepest snow:

In our front garden there was over 10 inches of snow:

and we won't be getting any solar water for a while:

all the bins look like this:

Our cars our buried, though the land rover could still get out if we needed to:

and where we have a leaky gutter, the slow melting of snow on the roof from heat inside the house has made an icicle:

At least Rye Hill is reasonably clear:

But Udimore road isn't looking so good:

Deadman's Lane is trying to live up to its name, with an icy covering:

There are still people driving on it though:

The train line is another matter - there's nothing moving there:

Going through Rye, the main roads aren't too bad. Here's the Landgate:

Some cars look like they're staying here for a while:

Market Road looks a bit risky:

as does Mermaid Street:

In fact, the A259 isn't great:

Away from the roads, there's some great views:

and it's still snowing, with wind blowing what's already fallen around:

Maybe we'll head up to the wood again before it melts...

Yes, most I've ever seen, apart from up mountains! Did you look at the pictures of it in our wood as well?
