* Snow returned this week. Starting on Saturday with rain turning to sleet, and sleet turning to snow.
Thick fluffy flakes fell from the sky, rapidly covering the rooves and paths.
The showers continued through the weekend, drifting on the shady sides of the valley, decorating every twig and branch with a sprinkle of white. In the photos below, the top of the hillside, and mountain range beyond have been whited-out by snow clouds. All very pretty but mighty cold.
