The sleet soon turned to freezing rain, then stopped altogether. By the time I had reached Steamer Quay there were large patches of blue sky. There were already icy patches, but the temperature dropped even further as the cloud cleared and the wet ground became really treacherous in places.
I didn't take any pictures yesterday on my way to work, I was concentrating on staying upright on the lethally slippery path.
We were originally forecast a couple of hours of heavy snowfall for yesterday afternoon but it kept getting pushed further and further back. The snow eventually arrived a little before 8 pm but there was less than expected and it didn't fall for long.
This morning there were only a few tiny patches of snow left on the paths and no ice, so walking was easier, allowing me to take a few seasonal photos of the Dart Valley.
Two days ago on my way home I noticed there was a whole tree caught in the moorings between the two road bridges. It spend yesterday pinned against the upstream side of Totnes Bridge and this morning had worked its way to the downstream side.
One of several pedestrian routes in Totnes, most people who use Mill Lane are too intent on their destination to look to the west between Colebrook Cottages and the fire station to notice that Totnes Castle is visible above Rushbrook Day Centre, peeping out from behind the hospital.
