First Peak District Snow of 2013

14th January 2013 · No Comments

Having been banging on to clients for ages about keeping their blogs up to date, I am embarassed to notice that the last update on this blog was New Year 2012!

Must do better this year…

So we’re two weeks into 2013 and the first snow of this winter has hit the Peak District in a rather underwhelming and yet (as usual), disruptive manner.

I should at this point thank the Staffordshire Moorlands Council gritting teams for their sterling work in keeping our roads clear and safe. This is in stark contrast to Derbyshire County Council, who are frankly appalling at keeping their roads clear – you only have to drive from here to Hartington, across the county border to see what I mean!

With the snow comes the inevitable school closures and therefore the opportunity for much fun with snowball fights, sledging and snowman building.

Oscar has outdone himself this year with a grotesque creation on the lawn, pictured below.

Luckily he has faced this monstrosity away from approaching visitors and guests. Instead the gruesome visage is aimed squarely at my office… thanks Osc!

With that, may I wish you all a happy and prosperous 2013 and of course, if you’re looking for a Peak District break this year, be sure to give us a call.
