Has The Snow Left Cumbria For Good?

IT felt today like the snow has left Cumbria for good, but I could be wrong about this, and trying to forecast the weather here sees you skating on very, very thin ice.

There’s tangible signs of spring and it’s light at five o’clock. This is very significant in the county psyche.

There’s something spring-like happening in the fields. The becks are bubbling, the snow drops are out and something’s stirring in the first chirp of the early morning birds.

But could we still get snow yet?

I have a photo taken only a couple of years ago showing heavy snow in late March. It’s a pity I don’t have it to hand to show you as it would be a good one to illustrate this piece.

UPDATE: (The snow returned on March 1st).
