      Great photos Christine! Looks like a stunning day.

      Looking at #1/3, can't work out if it's really warm (t-shirts and bare flesh at the bottom left), or still definitely winter (coats and scarf in the middle!!).
      Cheers,

      Mark.

        Hi Mark, it was a beautiful weekend, so warm and no wind. St Ouens Bay is the surfers bay, so can be quite wild, hence the jackets , but it turned out to be so warm we had to take our jackets off. Today I even noticed some in shorts .......lol The advert on TV does say we are the warmest place in the UK......lol

            Oh Kiki, are you looking at your pictures on this thread and thinking it must have been in another world? TV pics. show the terrible weather you are now enduring, nothing like it since in the '80's, they said. I thought of you immediately and echo Mark's words to keep warm and safe.

                Hi Everyone, Yes it has been a real blizzard for a few days, but the sun had been out again and everything back to normal. We had no flights, schools closed and shops closed early, but remember we are not used to such extreme weather so never prepared for it. It was quite scary with so many trees coming down all over the place.. This photo was taken by daughter from St Ouens bay, looking over to the other Islands. I must copy some of her photos from Facebook to put on CV .

                    How well are the Channel Islands geared up for snow clearing?

                      I am afraid not very well, because we rarely see bad weather. We only have the esplanade the widest road, all the lanes suffer when it is bad, and with so many trees down it makes it difficult to clear. Two people were injured by a falling tree and had broken bones the husband had to go to uk for treatment on his spine. Trees smashed through cars and buildings, so it was very bad. The airport was closed for over two days. Just hope it doesn't happen again for another 30 years

                        Very impressing and unusual pictures of the island under the snow... I hope the scare has gone and that life can go back to normal.
