Highlights of 2015 #2 - A storm to remember!

When Auntie Clare and Uncle Chris came to stay in March it went from 23 degrees the day they arrived to 0 degrees in 24 hours. A heavy snow storm and strong winds wreaked havoc across our valley and we were without electricity for 3 days. No electricity meant that, as well as no light, there was no heating and no hot water. 

I don't think it was the visit that any of us had envisaged but we made the most of it with improvised cooking, lots of candles and our trusty wood burning stove to keep us warm, plus lots of snow fun in the garden and around and scrambling adventures in the nature reserve...
