The 'Beast from the East' has struck. Lots of snow on and off over the past two days. Currently -3 C but wind chill factored in it is -10 C. I went out for a brisk walk in the snow and the brief sunshine and, wrapped up like an Inuit, I enjoyed the snowy walk. I wish I had taken my camera but I hadn't given it a thought. Some photos of the back garden...

Since these photos were taken we have had a further heavy fall of snow and more predicted so winter hasn't released it's grip yet. The cats are sensibly glued to various radiators and are not moving from their warm toasty spots. By the standards of much of Europe and North America this is light snow but  predictably the country has ground to a halt. I am returning to listening to Big Foot stories on-line and  a hot coffee. I hope wherever you are you are keeping safe and warm.

Beautiful - but forgive my chuckle!

Strange how different even closer regions can be. We found that out several years ago in Alabama. Just a little bit of ice and they shut right down. They didn't have the equipment or experience. We northerners were amused. Stuck at the luxury condo, darn it, but amused at it all.

I can understand you chuckling. It is crazy when it snows as so much shuts down. This isn't new or unknown but little preparedness for snow in this country.
