The Romance of the Forest

30 Nov

Here are some more poor quality photographs of the snow in Newcastle at the moment.  These were actually taken four days ago, and we have had several more inches since, including sporadic hail all day today.  Consequently, I have not left the house, and have spent the day reading Ann Radcliffe’s The Romance of the Forest.  The early sunsets and scary noises of snow falling off the roof make for a fitting environment to read Gothic novels, full of dark abbeys and pursuing chevaliers.
