Unseasonal Weather

A week ago people were wandering around in shorts and tee shirts, splashing sun lotion over themselves. This week it's back on with the winter woollies as strong and cold winds bring snow back to the area - in April!

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!

See Google Street View of this location.


  1. What a lovely capture of weather and of mood.

  2. Snow is not uncommon at Easter - it is the contrast with the over-warm weather of the previous week that makes it so remarkable but the British weather is known for being changeable.
