Lockdown restrictions eased in a mid-Spring snow fall

Just before 9 am this morning some barbers were already busy. Queues had formed outside those yet to re-open.

Pubs with gardens, like the Nags Head, were all prepared and have been taking bookings.

Pubs, non-essential shops, hairdressers, indoor gyms, and nail salons can all re-open from today under the easing of Covid lockdown restrictions.

Snow had been forecast but it was still a surprise to see it mid-April.

Flowers and plants huddled down to keep warm until the snow melted.

The Monday Market had all the stalls back again for the first time this year.

P.S. By noon, the sun was shining and the snow had melted.

    it was nasty driving to work in the snow this morning, proper snow albeit not too thick on the ground. hard to believe it looking around this afternoon.

    @Rudi – Have you ever done a skid-pan course? Try Thruxton circuit; the team there are very helpful and full of good tips. You’ll come away with a smile on your face and the reassurance of having complete a useful bit of driver training.

    I have no shares in Thruxton!!

      i’ve done a 360 degree spin on the motorway when driving in light drifting snow, heading for the central reservation only to come to a halt on hard shoulder fully intact!
