Day 2 of the Blizzard

This really was exceptional weather event for Jersey, the heaviest ever one day snowfall for March and very strong winds.  Jersey Airport has been closed for 2 days, it is hoped to start flying tomorrow afternoon.  With many roads impassable it was just a matter of heading out doors, experiencing the moment and taking some photographs.

South coast cliffs around La Rosiere, Corbiere is just visible in the distance.
This is the descent path of the start of the Gorselands coasteering trip.
The path, like to roads, has filled up with wind blown snow making progress hard work.
The garden shed is clearly not spindrift proof.
La Moye Golf Course.  Not sure what number hole is disappearing in the snow.
Lisa and Chester on the Railway Walk.
Its not that often that the Jersey pistes come into condition.
Jersey’s premier apres ski location.
 The Five Mile Road.  The snow wasn’t as deep here as we were at sea level.  Not the depth of the drifts on the right.
 
 Nicky on the south coast footpath, it if wasn’t for the gorse it could have been the Lakes in winter.
Frozen gorse.  It is difficult to imagine the impact the weather is having on birds such as Dartford Warblers.  The summer migrants, Wheatears and Sand Martins which appeared on the Island at the weekend must have had a shock.
 Beauport.  Spot the high tide mark.
