-7'C yesterday morning. -7'C again today. This IS meant to be England, and springtime too.
We live in a valley, and it seems to have it's own micro-climate, trapping cold and sometimes warm air. Driving up from our place to Upper Heyford, everything was white and sparkly. But when I got to the road that runs along to top of the valley it was thawing in the sun. Looking down across the fields toward the bottom, you could see the change from green to white as the temperature dropped, despite the sun. It's one of those lovely views that a camera can't capture, simply because it won't conform to a 6 X 4 format. You just have to experience it to enjoy it.
