Definitely no snow down here in the Vaucluse ATM, Very pleasant weather indeed. Sun is shining and I hope to be able to cut the grass later on this morning.

Transport difficulties today......but report of this particular reason for delays at the Tyne Tunnel I hadnt heard before..............

Major delays at the Tyne Tunnel due to the ANPR Cameras which open and close the barriers, being unable to read car registration plates due to them being covered by snow.

TYne Tunnel reacted swiftly to the situation by sending this tweet, and sending staff to the Plaza with brushes.

Does this mean I should fit a de-icing system to my number plates before I come up north on my Meander? :-D

No I dont think so Mick, after this I am sure the Tyne Tunnel Management will be better prepared next time and have an army of brusher-off-ers ready to welcome you should it be snowing.

Monday's snow came and went and by the afternoon had gone. Absolutely gorgeous day in Northumberland today blue sky, clean crisp air and a touch of warmth in the sun.....must have stirred something in the labrador, she went for her first plodge in the river in 2020 on her walk this morning :-D

Not recent shots, but you might like them. The night shot was not great (as I was cold, didn't have a tripod, and the camera needed to hold the shutter open longer than I expected.
