Definitely a dreich day.

The snow that fell in the night had pretty well gone this morning but we are still threatened by more to come. Finished cleaning and disinfecting the kitchen before my groceries arrived. The driver had come from Cleish which isn't far away and which has plenty of snow. Not a day for the garden but as I've booked a slot at the recycling centre tomorrow I chopped down a fair bit of a shrub. Went off to the chemist with my prescription and put glass in the local bin.
Photographed a flowering shrub in the car park, then remembered a flowering tree beside the Palace so photographed it too plus details of the Palace. Still not content. Drove round a bit , found some whooper swans in a field who probably wished they'd stayed in Iceland. Then took a series dark, damp, dismal landscapes. Dreich sums it all up. Surprising to go out on such a grim day and come back with about a dozen photos having enjoyed myself.

As with Roger, the lowest point in Thetford is flooded along with the flood plains in the surrounding the area. More to come according to the forecast.
I should mention the lowest point in Thetford is a park with no residential properties near by,

Dreich must be one of the most descriptive of words! Certainly sums up the scene here.

It was dreich here yesterday too. Jean and we didn't go out at all. last night we had heavy snow which didn't really settles, and today it's bright and sunny. No wonder we are obsessed with the weather in the UK. Nice lead-in lines into the misty distance.
