Before the Thaw 1
So, about 12 days after this amazing snow spell, the likes of which we have not had in this country since (I'm told) 1947, the thaw looks to be setting in. I went out this morning to snap a few memories before they all melt away. First up, here's the view through one of my kitchen velux windows. I love the little bit of blue sky peeking in! The other window is almost blacked-out, I'll post it tomorrow.
Car still snowed in. School has been closed, as we are on quite a height, so access has been impossible. I hope they don't ask us to work up the days!!
Santa could just about penetrate that ice to dig his heels in.
Snow on the roof... covering those velux windows..
Footprints in the garden snow..
This is just outside our front door. It's hard to see in this photo, but there's a bit of a "hill" where the first lot of snow fell off the roof, then it snowed all over again! the green bits are from the Christmas tree, which we got last night. Those spindles are supposed to give extra grip - I probably didn't have enough of them.
