... then many! I stood transfixed as I always do when snow falls!

The irony for me is that we had a mini holiday booked and I knew that even though I'd be waking to the wonder of settled snow, I'd have to walk through it and get on a train which would take me away from it!!!!

This meant that there were a number of stalls selling shotguns, taxidermy, etc. There was one stand for the National Association of Beaters and Pickers Up. My first thought was that it was some sort of disturbing ...
