Pho­tog­ra­phers out in force as snow­fall hits

Macclesfield Express - - FRONT PAGE -

THE last day of Fe­bru­ary brought a sur­prise dust­ing of snow to town yes­ter­day.

As quick as it had ar­rived it was gone again – but not be­fore the town’s in­trepid pho­tog­ra­phers took to so­cial me­dia to share their snaps.

Irene Lea sent us an at­mo­spheric pic­ture of the snow on Ivy Lane, and John Stock­ton sent us a stun­ning im­age of fresh snow at South Park.

Paul Shatwell, who runs Deja Vu in Mac­cles­field, shared a snap of the snow on the firm’s In­sta­gram ac­count.

He said: “Well I didn’t ex­pect this scene when I opened the cur­tains this morn­ing. Looks gor­geous though.”

The snow – which fell through­out the morn­ing – had melted by the af­ter­noon when rain be­gan to fall.

Ac­cord­ing to the Met Of­fice tem­per­a­tures are ex­pected to re­main cold for the rest of the week.

There is no fore­cast for snow, how­ever there will be some sleet tonight (Wed­nes­day, March 1).
