More about… snow

I having just gone back through my posts to see when the snow first started, the 17th of December. By Sunday we will have had a whole month of this. Rain is forecast for Saturday so hopefully it will not go that far but there is more snow forecast for the middle of next week. And when all this snow melts there are flood warnings…

This morning we were talking to the couple who run the feed merchant and they are well and truly feed up with the weather, they have even decided to reduce their own stock later in the year because of it.

I heard on the news the other day that they have snow fall somewhere in Spain for the first time in fifty years.

Life is on hold until the weather clears, but it is still carrying on. Still, this cold spell with have a great impact on the garden pests that need a cold spell to kill them off, and the midges that carry Blue Tongue will also be killed off.

Hoo hum…

  1. We also had our first snow on Dec 17th and the last lot fell a couple of days ago – now it’s rain and slush but at least the ducks are happy, dabbling around in all the puddles.

  2. This week we’re FINALLY above freezing. The chickens are happy which, in turn, makes us happy. I am so grateful for the sun we’ve had 2 days this week!

  3. We’ve got rain here for the first time since the snow started. Hopefully it will see off all the snow as it’s getting rather tedious now.

  4. I woke up this morning to green pastures… it’s so strange. I was so used to dazzling white snow everywhere and over the past couple of days it’s been disappearing. It’s as if there’s suddenly an explosion of green everywhere. Interestingly my bird feeders are so much quieter now.

    But it’s still pissing stair rods, cold and blustery… this has well and truly been a ‘proper’ winter. It’ll be interesting to see how this year’s seasons unfold. For a while it felt as if all the seasons were merging into each other, or getting a bit back to front… heat waves in spring, long, mild, wet summers, no frosts in autumn… should make for an interesting year!

    And like you, I’m keen to just get on with things. For the first time in years I’m looking forward to the onset of spring!
