Well, not here in north Wales where I'm staying.
Since the night of the 21st, it has been snowing non stop here; as in much of the country. It eased off a bit Sunday, a few flurries Monday, some more Tuesday, and it's snowing heavy now, as I do this.
It looks pretty.
The trouble with 'pretty' though, is it has its drawbacks.
When the snow is deep, with deeper drifting, sometimes your only way out is blocked.
This is the track down to the lane, on Friday.
and this is it yesterday.
Food is running out; both ours, the animals, and birds. My mobile died for 2 days, the internet keeps going off, the coal has run out, the metered electric should last about 10 days, and I'm getting too old for adventures like this.
Some lambs were born the other day; god knows what they think of all this.
Where I'm staying, is up high. Around us are half a dozen farms. One of them, a couple of fields away, is quite a wealthy man. He was considering buying Lake Vyrnwy last year. (don't know if he was successful).
Yes, they're all suffering from the same snow that has us trapped here; but have any of them come to see if we are OK, or need some help? These 4X4 owners? Some with tractors?
Here's one of the bird visitors we've had.
Here's a short video I took this morning.
This might be my last post for a while.
Sorry for the rant, but I'm just a bit pissed off with it all at the moment.
Hope you're all OK where you are.
