Snow in Windsor
Snow in Windsor these days
is a rarity. In the 1950s and 60s most winters would see a good
few inches of snow that would last for a week or more, and of
course there were the severe winters of 1947, 1953 and The Great Freeze
Early this morning, an inch or so of snow
fell in the Windsor area. It was a cold and frosty night and
the snow was fine and powdery. By 9.00am the sun was shining
brightly, the sky was blue and many children were enjoying the
excitement of playing in the snow.
It was not however a heavy snow fall. As
you can see in the pictures below, the grass is still visible
on the slopes below the castle, but the weather remained cold
with further snow showers over the next few days.
