The Silence of Snow

At last the snow which has affected much of the UK has arrived on the Mendips and brought with it an amazing quietness, even silence at times. The roads up here do not get gritted, so quickly present difficult driving conditions. Only those who don't know any better, or four wheel drives take the chance of taking the route past our home down into Wells, and so it is virtually empty of traffic. I love it, I can walk in the middle of the road and the dogs can scamper at will.
