Yup, I looked out of the window just in time to see it. The first snow flakes in amongst the rain. It has been drizzling - a sort of misty rain - most of the morning, but then it started to rain in a slightly more meaningful way, and that turned, briefly, to snow. It hasn't settled, it's probably still too warm to do so - at 2*C - but it bodes well for the predicted snowfall later this week.
In the meantime it is cold outside - windchill - and damp. Madam Paddy has found a nice warm spot, out of drafts and where she can monitor the approaches to the kitchen and her food bowl. That apart she seems to have decided on hibernation...
