I wonder why we are still in snow and ice, but we haven't had temperatures above 3 degrees for over a fortnight and the forecast is the same for the next few days then we might go to a balmy 9 degrees next week which will be good as SOH and I have to do some travelling as we are going down to Cornwall to visit family and the wintry conditions would not be ideal.
I love this particular picture of the garden, taken on the 5th of Feb it is almost perfectly blue because of the weather conditions, not because I have adjusted it with a software package.
The snow here was 5-6 inches deep, and then about 7am the following day we had another four inches making nearly a total of over a foot of snow, incredibly unusual but also dangerous for driving in.
Luckily over the next few days it stopped snowing and we even had some fun, I took the following pictures over the weekend of the scenes around the village. The dog is called Jake, and grinned like this when he was waiting for a snowball to be thrown for him to catch.
When we cleared the snow from the drive, we made a wall - other people build snowmen, not us we built walls and in fact one of the walls became a wine cooler for us. Actually still is as it is still there now over a week later.
