Snow and ice

Friday, January 8th 2010

The temperature today was very low indeed. Although there has been no wind the cold was intense if you stood still to look around. The snow plough came up our road this morning for the first time since it was built 14 years ago - which says a lot about the severity of the conditions. The road is still icy and not advisable to tackle unless you have a 4x4.

Snow covering the picnic benches

As you can see the snow gets ever deeper. The picnic benches are temporarily redundant, but many nice birds are feeding in the garden and being regularly targetted by the Sparrowhawks!

The icicles grow longer and we are wondering if they will reach the ground before the thaw begins!
