Monday morning sunrise over snow blown Chelmorton with schools texting opening delayed until ten (Feb 12th )

Heavy rain during the weekend had washed much of the salt away, a clear Sunday evening sky saw the snow sparkle in sub-zero temperatures but cloud was back by breakfast with further snow fall over the Main Street in Chelmorton as the sun warmed the road for early morning cars to escape.

Monday news was various school openings delayed with text messages at Buxton delaying the start until ten am. Holiday cottage guests in Chelmorton, eleven hundred feet above sea level were in for a treat of picture postcard snow-scapes where giant icicles hung from gutter pipes as they walked Main Street for the Church Inn pub.
