Snow

Maggi and I had a wee wander, out in the fresh, white wonderland

Knee-deep snow is knakkering to wade through, but it was a beautiful walk, and great to see so many kids out revelling in snow-angel exertions and snowperson constructions … more than you’d see out playing on a sunny day!!

.

I shovelled my doorway clear, and ended-up suitably fukked and tired!

.

White Magic!!

.

.

The snow is so deep and heavy, the trees are bent double, and some have fallen over

.

.

Twas gorgeous today … heavy snow, large dollops falling like a beaded curtain in front of you … and then when it stopped, it was … as they so rightly say, … deep and crisp and even

.

Like stage-make-up on an old actress, making it appear fresh and clean again

Although it’s beautiful to look at, I’m concerned that it’s gonna last long-term and make life very difficult in terms of travel, shopping, and in day-to-day concerns.


Maggi was sent home from school as only 9 pupils made it in because of the snow, from an intake of over 300 pupils … wow!


Tonight, our electricity went off … suddenly … as it does … and I immediately felt very aware of losing heating, lighting, and the subsequent possibility of pipes freezing … all this added to the fact that our roads are totally blocked, and the prospect looks like it may get worse before it gets better!!!

Gladly, the power was only down for 30 minutes or so, but as soon as it came back on, I immediately started baking bread in a primal need for gathering provisions around me or something similar.


Fukkit … I’m getting the big knife, and going hunting in the morning … those squirrels that’ve been raiding my bird-tables, and nutty-fat balls are getting it!

Mind you, eating squirrels does have it’s dangers, and they should carry a warning  – “May Contain Nuts”
