White Out.

Hey,

.

My goodness, what a day this is.

.

I woke up this morning, thinking that it must still be early because the bedroom was so dark, but is was not, it was the weight of the sky, so low and heavy.

.

Yesterday a lot of the snow was cleared away by hailstones and torrential rains, but it was still freezing cold and very slippery underfoot.

I was actually thinking that the weather people had got it all wrong and that everyone would be able to get to whatever party they wished for their New Year’s Eve celebrations.

.

I was wrong.

The whole world is once again dressed  in a pristine white coat.

It is truly beautiful, thick and seasonal in the extreme.

Awesome.

.

It is like a scene from The Lion, The Witch And The Wardrobe when the children step through the clothes and out into Narnia.
.

.

I often think that we should go and live somewhere incredibly warm so that Big H can get the benefit but I cannot imagine never seeing such beauty again.

.

I mean, it quickly gets to be a pain in the arse because it is cold and it gets so wet, dirty and slushy before it goes but nothing can beat a morning where you open the curtains and gasp at the transformation that a really heavy, unexpected snowfall has wrought..

.

When we had a dog it was immense fun to take him for a walk and watch him enjoy it all. The cats too!

Not to mention the fun it is for the children.

.

If Big H is feeling OK when he finally arises, it would be lovely to go for a walk and take some pictures of it all whilst it is so pristine, and a snowball fight would be good.

.

I put out white bread for my little friends this morning .

They were all waiting patiently in the tree, with their shoulders humped up and their heads hanging down, so I hope that they are sensible enough to eat their breakfast very quickly before it disappears under the snow.

.

That is the problem for the crows, they probably miss the aesthetic aspects of the change and just feel bloody disgruntled, damp and hungry.

Not much food available in a frozen white world. No local Spar for them, except for all the people Like me.

.

They do provide a perfect accent against the snow though!

.

Obviously I don’t know what you are planning for this evening but I wish you a wonderful time and much fun.

.

LOL
