There was a two-foot high cotoneaster bush here until yesterday afternoon. Well, all right, it's probably still there, but it most certainly isn't two feet high anymore. Around about 15:00 on Friday, the overhang of snow shown here decided finally to let go and slide in an Alpine stylee off the roof and onto the garden.

There have been blocks of solid ice in the fall the size of house-bricks. Anyone caught underneath would have had nothing less than major concussion from the impact.

One thing's for certain; I won't be the only one phoning the Housing Department's repair line on Tuesday.
