The Beast from the East in Cornwall

A first for a long while, some substantial snow in Cornwall. I managed to get to Penzance,Porthleven and Helston. I got 4 wheel drive but  a lot of other people with incapable cars or just driving like idiots creating huge jams on the roads. Still got some scenic stuff and may try again today although forecast isn't looking to good with storm Emma on the way. The snowfall was quite heavy with Penzance been covered in about 30 minutes. Here are some shots from when the snow hit Penzance and I worked my way back towards Helston.

The new Hitachi 801 class Super Express arrived as the snow started
