First flurry of the white stuff for Aussie Jorja, 14
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.
