Extreme weather?

On the surface it looks like we have got off with it lightly here. At first glance ...less than an inch of snow!
However, since last Friday night, we had a very hard frost, followed by hail, then rain, then a freeze! All before Saturday 10am-ish. Temperatures did not climb at all.
However, the views across the bay are fantastic.

All week it has been thawing slightly, just to freeze again, creating layers of ice and compacted snow.
Walking is very difficult due to the solid ice on top of the pavements.
Unfortunately, my new camera doesn't like the cold, and switched off when I tried to zoom in for a closer shot of the Lakeland Fells.
