"It is the ice that is causing the biggest concern, with large parts of the UK being warned about the danger of black ice as commuters wrestle with journeys on foot, by car or public transport to work and back"
"Thousands of homes are still without power and many roads still impassable as the freezing cold weather and snow continues to cause disruption.
The severe weather and bitterly cold temperatures are set to continue across most parts of the country right up until the weekend, forecasters have said"
Thanks to those who left clicks and comments on yesterday's five Robin's eggs. I've added a seasonal touch to it today.
Many thanks too to Robin for giving For Mum his User Award - which was very much appreciated SmileSmile
Keep warm everyone
Helen

Another excellent presentation, Helen, but I do prefer yesterday's. We have gale force 9 winds here, making it impossible for me to get outdoors at present, but at least it is from the South, and warm. Carol

I understand it's cold in Europe - my mother was saying how bitterly cold the wind is right now.
Spring came here to us in Central Texas and we thought winter was over, only to wake up this morning to near freezing temperatures - a rather unusual occurrence for this part of the country this late in March. Brrrrr

I like what you've done to your robin's eggs in this one Smile
