Snowing in Gordonton!

It was only a flurry, but for a few seconds it was actually snowing in Gordonton.  Can anyone remember the last time this happened – if it has happened?  It must be more than half a century ago…

There was just time to grab this photo of the snow as it fell past our bay hedge.  The enlarged circle shows it more clearly, not quite enough to build a snowman.

    happy to be in the team!
    What an excitement about the snow (we could hardly see it) but thanks for the enlargement! We even heard it here in Germany at least 3times in the news!!!
    Have a nice spring – soon!

    I can no longer say it never snows where I live.

      We think it was actually a snow storm, not a passing flake!
