Proper Solstice Blade Weather!

If you don’t live in Cornwall, you may not know how unusual it is for it to snow here. So, for the benefit of the uninitiated, on a scale of one to ten, where one is “very likely” and ten is “very unlikely”, the chance of snow in Cornwall in March is generally accepted by most academics to be about twelve. In fact it is one of the things that the three brothers complain about in The Solstice Blade.

Having made the point about how unlikely snow is in the opening chapters of the novel, today  the weather decided to prove this author wrong, but also provided a photographic opportunity that was too good to miss, so without further ado, you are invited to follow Liam, Evan and Travis’s journey through Liskeard once again, this time featuring Actual Snow
