Island Winter Wonderland
About This Image
A treee lined, public footpath covered in snow.
This is the most snow the Isle of Wight has had in the past 25 years or so. In the region where I live, we had approximately 6 inches! Not much, you might think, but for here it's quite a lot; we only usually get a 'dusting' if anything at all - snow usually passes us by. The north of the island, in Ryde and Cowes, had almost twice as much as the centre.
We don't have the right equipment and machinery for dealing with heavy snow falls and consequently, the island came to a grinding halt for 3 or 4 days, with no bus service or traffic, other than 4x4's on our roads.
