A one minute blizzard.

I noticed the road sign pointing to the "Vicarage" as you come into the village.

"The Vicarage" is a replacement for the Old Vicarage that stood on the site. The developers blurb says "These apartments at The Vicarage are being sympathetically built to replace the Old Vicarage that once stood in this unique location. The building sits centrally on one acre surrounded by it's own gardens and woodland, offering a peaceful". I think that they ended up with 10 apartments. The original planning application was for 12 and was turned down by Dover Council, for lots of reasons, one of which was that it was on three floors and would be intrusive. I wonder how the three floors they finally approved are different from the ones the refused?

The forecast snow arrived and within five minuted we were covered in a layer of snow that was about 1 mm thick and disappeared within minutes. But of course there could be more overnight or tomorrow.

It was cold today, this Starling looked bemused as it stood on the ice. It is used to bathing in the pond, and didn't seem to know what to do. There was fresh water available in the bird bath!
