My recollection of 2011 is going to be rain, snow, ice, mud and a lot of water. While the south of the UK has been worrying about drought, this part of the country has been suffering from a significant lack of sunshine.
Unlike the last two winters, which went straight to snow for long periods, this year the snow came a little earlier, stayed for a couple of weeks and now we're back to guess what. RAIN!
Still, at least the days are getting longer now. Happy new year.
