Shopkeeper Alfie Dolbear has plenty to smile about
The snow which has brought disruption to much of Devon has not been bad news for everyone.
One man who is very happy is Alfie Dolbear, who owns a discount store in Cullompton's Fore Street.
He has sold £2,000 worth of sledges since the snow started falling - and has now sold out.
"I sold 94 today (Wednesday) and 120 yesterday," said Alfie. "People were here queuing this morning, waiting for me to open up.
Alfie quickly sold out of the sledges
"The early birds have had the worms because they're all gone now."
Alfie has had the sledges in stock since February 2009, when the area was also hit by heavy snow.
"I kept them all at the same price, £8.99, and there was a good choice of colour as long as people like red!
"I was hoping it would snow - it has really helped me out."
