Queuing for petrol in the snow

Cars were queuing for petrol at the Shell filling station on Dowson Road last Saturday. Light snow had been falling for about two and a half hours.

A series of photos of the snow on Swains Valley can be seen on Hyde DP Xtra.

It wasn't quite the snowmageddon that the press and TV made it out to be - not round here at any rate. By Monday it had more or less gone.


  1. Still wondering where our snow is? Very realistic image of snowfall, conveys the coldness, the damp and makes me think perhaps we can do without it here after all.

  2. hee hee..."Snowmageddon".... Leave it to the press to overstate things!

  3. It's the kind of photo which I like but can't explain why.
