Well at last we got some snow in this little sea-girt corner. The rest of the country seems to have had a ton of it over the past weeks.

Inland the Lake District fells are covered with snow and this has unfortunately kept the Mountain Rescue teams busy, especially in the Langdale/Ambleside area. Someone (Martin Campbell) was filming in the Langdale Valley and caught one of the rescues off Bowfell. See the helicopter.

A lot more snow and ice around in 2009 than on this photo taken at a similar time of year in 2005.
