Don’t worry – the weather in Hoylake hasn’t taken a turn for the worse just yet! That view of Marine Road was taken last winter on Jan 11th.
I’ve been prompted to use the photo as I’ve read that the government has just published the first official Snow Code. It’s a step-by-step guide to coping with a heavy snowfall. It seems like common sense to me but apparently last winter home owners were scared to clear snow from the pavement outside their homes in case they were sued if someone then slips.
Hopefully we won’t endure a prolonged cold snap in Hoylake this winter, but if we do and you feel you need to check the snow code before you get the shovel out of the shed then you’ll find it right here.
By the way, if you’ve got any good photos of Hoylake in winter (past or present) that you’d like to share then feel free to send them in via email (contact details) and I might publish a few of them. I’ve only taken a few myself and as is typical with several of my photos, they appear to have turned-out a bit wonky!
