Rochester is under snow this morning, as is much of Kent. I have a “Will you marry me” banner to display for another Spring romantic over the Bluewater shopping centre at lunchtime but it’s all looking rather “iffy” for the poor chap, as Rochester airfield is presently closed and the wind isn’t helping much either.
Kent Online reports up to 12 centimetres of snow in some areas of the county with West Kent being particularly hit. As I write, Headcorn and Rochester airfields have now announced suspension of traffic for the remainder of the day so today's marriage propsal is sadly "off."
The gale which is battering us here in Thanet seems to be very localised and should, with a little luck, move off by later this afternoon.
