Here on the edge of the marsh we have had very little snow. Went to a Quiz
on Thursday at Dungeness fearing the worst but only a few flakes in the
wind_when we left at 11pm. About 25mm overnight and Friday morningthen
nothing - quite icy though. Not surprised about Charing used to live near
there It was not so much Charing as Lenham that bore the brunt with huge
drifts when the winds were right (or wrong!) I worked at Marleys for a
while and often could not get to work.
