WADING THROUGH IT. (26/01/13)

It snowed a few inches last night. About two this morning The tree overhanging the van decided to shake off what sounded like a few hundred weight of snow. The dogs were barking and I sat up so fast I banged my head. I couldn’t get back to sleep.

It was heavy going on our walk but it was worth going out. The sky was wonderful. A woodpecker was tapping away and a dozen mallard were begging for food. I got back to the van and provided them with seed and a couple of wheetabix.

It is sleeting again now. A pretty miserable day. I’m going out for lunch again.

Have a good day.

  2. Adrian, I'm guessing that banging your head didn't knock too much sense in, aah..well! another opportunity missed!

    It's nice to see a bit of sun at last, super tree image and Hope cement works is all the better for it!

    Don't give all that food to her cousins, Doris will want some next week!...[;o)

  8. Love the first two views. We had a couple of inches of wet snow overnight which turned to ice as soon as it was compressed. Raining now so it should disappear as fast as it came.
