Snow, snow and more snow

We woke up this morning to a blanket of white.  It had been forecast so we were forewarned and had stocked up on groceries.

The UK never copes well with snow.  Schools and airports are shut; workers have not gone in today; roads are in chaos.  I’m jolly glad we didn’t have to go out in the car today.  I think the UK just doesn’t have enough snow ploughs or snowblowers, so every time we get snow the country grinds to a halt.

The hens were not at all happy, never having seen snow before they didn’t want to venture out.  We tried to tempt them with food but only a couple came down the ramp.

The Fruit cage has collapsed.  The weight of the snow on the nets has pulled it down.  That’s going to be a big job to mend that.

We donned our hats, scarves, coats and boots and went for a walk, crunching through the newly laid snow.  It was not so nice with the snow blowing onto our faces, but envirgorating to be outside.

I love making footprints in the snow……

Not much traffic had been down our lane.

We must have had at least 4 inches of snow, more in some places.  It’s beautiful the way it sits on gates and hedges.

Walking back up the lane towards home, we got a view of our house in the snow, a welcome sight, knowing how warm it is inside.

Luckily we don’t have any B&B guests booked in at the moment, as I think they would struggle to get here today.

    All of the snow we had has melted already, but more is coming. All of your photographs are so beautiful! Thanks so much for sharing them with us!

  2. Guests might struggle, but it would be worth the effort – so beautiful.

    • What a contrast to your weather!!

      • No kidding. We broke the record for the highest temperature yesterday: 45.8. Trust me, our chickens we no happier than yours! And I wasn’t very happy either. There’s no escape from that kind of heat without airconditioning (which neither my chickens nor I happen to have).
