My second memory of the snow fall is being outside at four o'clock in the morning. Have you ever seen the Simon the Cat cartoon 'Cat Man Do'? If not click here. This was my cat on that Saturday morning. There was no way she was going to be ignored ... I was forced out of bed! In a way she did me a favour because I looked outside and realised my greenhouse heater had gone out!! Of all the nights to run out of parafin! Elegantly attired in my dressing gown and wellies I braved the snow to rescue the plants and that's when I heard the barn owl. Ghostly white and silent it was hunting along the deserted road. A beautiful sight ..... unless you're a mouse!
