Snow in Rye, Feb 2012

Ever since we moved to Rye in summer 2007, it's snowed every winter. The weather has not let us down this winter either...

This time the snow has stuck to everything it can - check out these telephone wires sagging...

The river Tillingham was frozen over:

and I just about got a picture of this Bullfinch there:

Then on to Deadmans Lane, which always looks good in the snow. This time though, the stickiness of the snow means that two branches from evergreens were down in the road:

The broadleaf trees are fine, as with no leaves they can't collect much snow:

And finally Rye Hill, which is passable if you know how to drive in snow. But of course, not everyone does!
