The weather forecasters prediction of “snow on Northern Hills” heard between October and April  always evokes images of rolling snow capped Yorksire hills and greenish dales in my imagination. If heard after the evening news it’ll get me out early next day.

And so this morning the wind blew horizontal snow showers past the dark kitchen window as predicted and I headed out up onto Ramsden Road to grab some rare wintry weather.

Only the highest ground had been caught by snow which was being laid down by a stream of  brief but brutal showers.
