WARNING - THIS POST CONTAINS A LOT OF PICTURES!
Yes....this is me, just before tumbling out of the sledge today. I really should know better at my age but no harm done thank goodness.
Snow is SO photogenic. I really apologise for the number of pictures but I couldn't hold back. There were about 200 to start with. Here goes.....
It was foggy on Friday too which was very eerie. I fell over three times as I misjudged the depth if the snow. Luckily no one was around to see my buffoonery.
The fog cleared today but it is much colder and temperatures are due to drop to at least minus ten degrees centigrade tonight. The lane has packed down into a very thin glacier and is treacherous with no grip. We got Origami boy into school on Friday; I hope we get there tomorrow as I've got a crown to be fitted in the afternoon.
Snippet at work under the snow
These formations were similar to the previous snow flowers but growing out of the earthy side of a saturated gully made by decades of rainwater
And the birds........

Both the Nuthatches
I hope you've all had a great weekend, not blighted but enhanced by the snow if you have it. Supplies are running a little low but not dangerously so. Roast chicken is in the oven; potatoes about to go in so, until next time, here are Origami boy and Snippet today.
I love the snow as Snippet does! And love to take snow photos also. It is so amazing how the landscape transforms with snow and fogReplyDelete
Our snow has melted, just cold temps which are fine by me. Hopefully no rain for a while as we dry out.
Roast chicken sounds wonderful! We are having pork chops on the grill tonight~
Amazing photos, I always love to see Snippet playing, as well as those in their second childhood LOLReplyDelete
Amazing photographs and was an absolute joy to view...... We are just loving the snow here.. especially the dogs.... lots of fun and frolics to be had... oh yes and mega amounts of photographs!!!ReplyDelete
Really must catch up my blog.... over a year behind.... (shuffles off hanging head in shame.. lol!!)
Lets hope the fun continues....
Yes, lots of photos but wonderful ones!ReplyDelete
How picturesque snow is and what fun.....
for children and dogs most of all.
Snow forecast here tomorrow!
Lots of fun by everyone the snow brought. Bandit loves rolling in the snow.ReplyDelete
Wonderful photos Em!ReplyDelete
Snippet is in his element, love the one of him rolling.
And the birds are great too.
No snow here, no snowy pics :(
Gail - I'm not so keen when trying to get things done in it! Trigger's trough needs topping up twice a day so I'm struggling up and down with watering cans in a foot of snow. Lovely to play in though.ReplyDelete
Kath - Yes - I did have a great time today!
Jane - Lovely to hear form you and I'm still hoping you might start posting again too.
Elizabeth - I hope your coming snow isn't too disruptive. Thank goodness this new laptop uploads the photos more quickly. This post would have taken a week to do with the old one!
Cindy - Snip has had many, many snow-baths today. He was a bit smelly and it's really helped.
Rusty D - I thought you might have had some by now. A mixed blessing to be honest. Lovely to look at but a bit of a pain up here and I imagine your dreaded steps might be a bit treacherous!
I loved your snowy photos, especially of Snippet getting himself into his snow tunnel!ReplyDelete
Sympathies with the water carrying. Our troughs have to be refilled by hand when the pipes freeze , so a few more days of this weather will see me with arms twice as long as they should be....
If I had all that snow I would be out taking photos too.
Lovely photos of the fog, snow and of course Snippet in the snow.
Your bird photos are wonderful.
Waving from the internet cafe. LOVELY photos. Wish I was there! STILL NO PHONE LINE . . .ReplyDelete
DW - At least I'm only doing it for the one pony but he seems to be drinking like it's mid-summer. Snip did actually come out the other end, it was such a crispy cold coating over the snow!ReplyDelete
Parsnip - I think that cold crispness affects the light too and that's why the bird photos are so clear, despite it being foggy.
BB - You must be in blogosphere cold turkey by now, or spending most of your days at the cafe! Hope you're well and keeping warm up there.
Super pictures - I especially like the tree with the snow covered rocks - it looks like a painting.ReplyDelete
I think you're right. I also think a lot of the others look like paintings too. Probably the strange grey light that did it.ReplyDelete
Yes things in your photos looking like paintings, the tree photo especially so. Gosh Snippet is enjoying the snow, think he needs a blog all to himself ;)ReplyDelete
I think you're right but it's finding the time!ReplyDelete
Male blackbirds are stunning! I could dedicate an entire blob just to this one species! You take great pics and are surrounded by such a beautiful landscape. Thanks for sharing. We have had a great deal of snow here this winter too.ReplyDelete
Until photographing them close up, I'd never noticed those tiny fine feathers around their beaks. I agree with you, they're just beautiful.ReplyDelete
