Snow in April

In spite of the cold, in my more optimistic moments the sunshine and clear blue skies seemed to argue for a steady drift towards the heat of summer.  I had been walking on footpaths in the fields to the east of Churton in the bright sun yesterday and in spite of the hypothermic conditions, which were fairly savage, it was something of a surprise, to look out of the window a couple of hours later and find myself confronted by a solid sheet of snowfall.  It settled, but thinly.  After a very cold night it was still providing a light blanket over my garden when I woke up this morning, but by midday it had melted away.
