Friday 18 December 2009 – Snow in Timperley!

Morning in Timperley

This is an unusual sight to wake up to in Timperley.

Nevertheless, intrepid TGO Challenger John J made it round for coffee and cakes, in exchange for vital assistance regarding the broken power supply for my slide scanner.  We enjoyed a score draw on the Christmas card front  as well.  Thanks John.

It was a lovely day, so I took a stroll down the canal to the Swan with Two Nicks, passing this barge near the Bay Malton.  Ice was forming on the canal, with thin sheets stretching all the way across it in places.

Returning to Altrincham through the grounds of Dunham Massey, I caught the sunset from outside Dunham Massey house.  The trees have now lost nearly all their leaves, and the cloudless sky made for a rather quick sunset process.

Sue reckoned it was better from Timperley Bridge.  But she can’t prove it!
