    It was a shame to read about this Iconic Sequoia 'Tunnel Tree' being Brought Down By California Storm

    http://www.npr.org/sections/thetwo-way/2017/01/09/508919216/iconic-sequoia-tunnel-tree-brought-down-by-california-storm

    "A powerful winter storm in California has brought down an ancient tree, carved into a living tunnel more than a century ago.

    The "Pioneer Cabin Tree," a sequoia in Calaveras Big Trees State Park, saw horses and cars pass through it over the years. More recently, only hikers were allowed to walk through the massive tree.

    Over the weekend, a powerful winter storm slammed into California and Nevada, prompting flooding and mudslides in some regions. The Associated Press reports it might be the biggest storm to hit the region in more than a decade.

    On Sunday, a volunteer at the state park reported that Pioneer Cabin had not survived.

    "The storm was just too much for it," the Calaveras Big Tree Association"

    We've seen some light snow this evening ... glad I'm indoors!

    I did read earlier that some folks on the East coast were being asked to leave their homes ...

    "Preparations are being made ahead of a predicted storm surge in the east of England, as severe flood warnings are put in place by the Environment Agency.
    High tides and gales are expected to bring disruption along the east coast overnight on Thursday and on Friday.
    The "severe" categorisation means the agency is warning of "danger to life".
    About 100 soldiers have been sent to Lincolnshire to help issue door-to-door warnings, while the Essex village of Jaywick is set to be evacuated.
    In a statement about the evacuation, Essex's fire service said: "Police officers will be calling at addresses in Jaywick from 4pm this afternoon to advise people that a full evacuation plan will be implemented starting at 7am on Friday.""

    We're far enough inland not to be affected though the river might back up a bit and the A12 may be closed for a while at the top of the estuary which last happened a few years back. Hopefully the flood won't go over the seawall into Minsmere or too many other reserves. Sod Great Yarmuff, it needs a wash!

    So far we just had some snow which melted during the day, not as much as threatened. Damn cold though.

    We seem to have got away lightly had some snow overnight, had a podiatry appointment at 10am this morning really expected to be scraping ice off the car wind screen but the snow had melted and cleared easily  Very Happy

    Rest of the day has been cold but mainly sunny and dry

    Yeah not as bad here as they predicted, though it might have been if the wind changed direction. I went out to Walberswick and the river had been over and flooded some of the watermeadows - which is what they're there for - and apparently it came up quite high but no higher in the village, no damage done.

    Huge breakers still rolling in and some surfers at play. Brilliant sunshine but a biting wind, temp according to the car between 3 and 5 C. Felt a bit less though. I don't mind a bit of wind chill if the sun is shining.

    First day in over a week that the gloom has lifted and the sun has shone for most of the day  sunny it's not been cold either that's on the cards for tomorrow expecting temperatures to dip below zero by night

    Given the choice I'd rather the sun and the cold than the gloom. Though today was a bit over the top, there was frost all day in places where the sun didn't shine.

    After a couple of reasonable days with a fair amount of sunshine the cold and gloom is back Saturday and today has been made worse with a bitterly cold wind. at midday the temp in my car was showing just three degrees (not the group Laughing ) definitely not walking weather  brrr

    It is if you walk fast enough! It's a bugger when you stop still though, I was starting to lose all feeling in my feet standing around chatting. I was almost tempted to eat a Belvita. No, not really obviously, some Macadamia nuts though, and I even had an anatomically correct (ie small) portion of quinoa with my pheasant stir-fry, mainly to soak up the fats and juices so they didn't go to waste, or need so much washing up!

    Rest of the week is not looking so good though.

    It's the fog that is the worst ... added to that the frost, out earlier today and driving very carefully - thankfully the other drivers were too.

    At this time of year I much prefer a cold day with blue sky and sunshine ...

    There was a little kid all dressed up in a waterproof romper suit and wellies jumping joyfully into the puddles when I was at Walberswick.

    Mother used to remind me that I used to jump onto autumn leaves and say "tush!"
