The main road to Cornwall was blocked...the local supermarkets had problems as a days supply of provisions were lost in the Snow....
We have only had a couple of weeks of decent calm weather and now the Blackthorn Winter has fully bloomed we are feeling the
effect of a true Blackthorn Winter....The temperature has dropped and we are getting a few days of cold Easterly wind....upto 40 MPH
This heavy swell might change the shape of the boat launching beaches before we get a settled spring....Dolphin Carcases washed up on the beaches
possibly the result of commercial deep sea fishing further up the coast....Seaweed washed up onto the village waterfronts....
Holliday makers should be here this coming Good Friday....They have been about for a couple of weeks , then it will go dead again till Mayday W E.
Late Dafodils are still coming into bloom, Tulips are finished,..BlueBells, Primroses and Wild Garlic are in the hedgerows
The Farms are cropping vegetables....Many fields are being sprayed with animal fertiliser or being ploughed now the land is drying...
Tuesday evening sailing next week; continuing until September...In two months time ,..the nights will start drawing in again.
Soon everyone will be boating again and the wind and rain will follow..see what this summer will bring....
The year I was born in August, The Big Top for the circus in the field, next to the nursing home ,was blown down in a gale of wind.
Last birthday we crossed the Helford river for a Barbie...on the way back to the sailing club we ran out of wind.
If I remember correctly we only lost two evenings sailing with the strong wind....We all live in hope for this year
