The photo shows the Market Place in Mossley which, being much higher up than Ashton, had a layer of wet snow on the ground this morning, although it had begun to melt by the time I took this photo. A friend told me that there was 5 inches of snow in the higher parts of Oldham this morning.
It seemed strange to see daffodils poking their heads out of the snow. This is certainly an unusual about-turn for the weather!
