Snowy Somerset

Somerset Snow - 3
It's been a snowy week in the UK. This photo was taken on Friday morning on top of the Brendon Hills near Bathealton. Blizzard conditions overnight with a strong north wind created these drifts.

Further down the lane we came across a tree blocking our way. The heavy wet snow caused a lot of trees and limbs to break and fall. This one completely blocked access for the local farmer trying to get hay to his cattle (he did manage to get to the field the long way round).
