For the second time this month snow is falling in Penarth today – blanketing roads and causing many scheduled functions to be cancelled.
Vale of Glamorgan gritting lorries were working on the main streets of Penarth at 02:00 this morning but continuing snowfall since then nullified much of their work .
Today’s snow seems to be of the same powdery consistency as the snow which was delivered by the “Beast from the East” – and is therefore accumulating in wind-driven drifts but the volume of snow wasn’t quite as heavy the previous snowfall at the beginning of the month .
It looks like another day of unendurable privation ahead for Penarth – or, alternatively, lots of fun with sledges and snowballs…
…but meanwhile people in the know predict that things could get worse tonight:-
The Tabernacle Church in Plassey has warned its congregation not to turn up for tonight’s scheduled Evening Service.
On Twitter. the Tabernacle says “Due to the worsening weather conditions expected from later today and the high probability of ice underfoot, there will be NO evening service tonight.”
