First flurry of the white stuff for Aussie Jorja, 14

Macclesfield Express - - BEFORE THE BENCH -

A BLAN­KET of snow dis­ap­peared as quickly as it came last week.

But it did last just long enough for 14-year-old Jorja Sav­age-Mor­ton to get her first ever taste of snow.

Jorja, who was vis­it­ing Mac­cles­field from Aus­tralia, headed straight to the Cat and Fid­dle to see the flurry when her mum Zoe spot­ted pic­tures on the Mac­cles­field Ex­press face­book page.

Zoe, who is from Mac­cles­field but em­i­grated to Queens­land 28 years ago, said: “First time for one of my girls for snow to­day.

“We were in Holmes Chapel, if I hadn’t seen the post ear­lier to­day she would have missed it.

She added: “It was beau­ti­ful up there, very cold with the wind blow­ing. We couldn’t see any thing around us the fog was so thick. One very happy daugh­ter. She loved it.”

The freez­ing cold weather, which could be a re­sult of an area of low pres­sure in the po­lar re­gions, re­sulted in snow across the higher ar­eas of Mac­cles­field.

It also prompted the coun­cil’s grit­ting fleet to be de­ployed and a yel­low weather warn­ing from the met of­fice.

While tem­per­a­tures re­main cool, there are no cur­rent weather warn­ings for snow.
