Thanks Cambrian for posting that.     $good$

I wish that I'd have known about it before but at least I'll have it for the next cold spell.

They have this offer most years according to a blog I was reading earlier, so you will have to get in early next year Steve. I can't see how they can quote it should cost £15 as Aqualogic who have partnered Dwr Cymru on this, sell the tap protection jacket for £5.72 and the 2 metre insulation pipe cover is on offer in B&Q for £1  &shake&

I've checked again Steve and sadly you're a bit late on the offer.  I'm not surprised that they have all gone considering the weather that we have had.

If I thought the weather was bad in upper Colwyn Bay it was nothing compared to the countryside outside of St Asaph.    My walking mate Tellytubby was out in this weather delivering urgently required medical supplies and sent me photos of the road conditions he had to face.
When one road became impassable he walked half a mile through the snow to deliver the medical supplies to an elderly person.   I bet that person didn't expect to see anyone deliver the package that day

Tellytubby and Rhuddlan have been out and about today and Rhuddlan sent me a photo that shows the island in Menai Straits which is between both bridges.     The level of the water must have been too close for comfort for the people living in those cottages.
Tellytubby and Mrs T  went to Aber to have a look at the frozen falls there.    Apparently the place was busy with hundreds of people doing the same thing.
The ice has now started to melt but the photos are still impressive.

This dramatic drone footage reveals shattering scale of Holyhead Marina destruction
The film shot by John Davies looks like a scene from a disaster movie as recovery work continues.

I wouldn't fancy climbing up the waterfall at Aber but some climbers obviously did.   In the last photo I posted I've only just noticed a climber on the way up the waterfall

We're at the same latitude as Minsk, so for the most part we get away with the worst weather.  I suspect that's why it always comes as a surprise when we get clobbered.

I know the climbers, they are experienced ice climbers and they took the opportunity.
Being negative only makes a difficult journey more difficult. You may have been given a cactus, but you don't have to sit on it.

It is, and yet because it didn't snow in Cardiff, the only mention of it on the Wales news on BBC was the final item - when in passing they mentioned that a bit of snow had fallen. Had a few flakes hit Cardiff they'd have been doing special bulletins all day...

A470 closed between Glan Conwy and Tal-y-Cafn due to SNOW !!!

I grew up in Tal-y-Cafn and live in Llandudno Junction since 1976 - I cannot recall Bodnant Hill ever being closed before - what is going on?

I should be at Bodnant today so looks unlikely now!

Bodnant hill does close in snowfall times - usually when a lorry gets stuck half way up.  But we've known it closed on several occasions - although usually only for a short time.
