The world outside my front door

Rossa comments on the current state of snow in our fair land:

The Sun tried to break through the cloud earlier today so I got my camera out and took some shots of the winter wonderland outside my front door:

My car is now a black and white Beamer and everything else looks very black and white too.

There are 2 shire horses huddled together in the field in front of my house.

View of my house.

What’s it like your way now?

    Snow makes everything more beautiful and I love the hush it adds to the world. Thanks for sharing!

    Unfortunately, Oxforshire is not as lucky as ‘up North’ (thought you were a deprived area). Global Warming has yet to really arrive!

    Third one is the view up the lane from my house. We are lucky to be sheltered by the bluff behind us, where the trees are. At the top of that is the open moor.

    The pair of Shire horses in the field to the front of our house are huddling together against the biting NE wind. At least the farmer manages to get here once a day with hay and to break the ice on the water tank.

    Earlier this year they (the horses not the farmer) had a foal. Hopefully, if the mare is pregnant again the snow will have cleared before the Spring, just in time for the new arrival. Otherwise the stork may struggle with the delivery. May have to borrow Santa’s sleigh 🙂

    Not deprived of GW here WfW. Mind you Germany seems to be suffering a lot to the chagrin of the greenies there. With wind chill down to -40c things are looking more than a bit dodgy for the world’s biggest manufacturer of solar panels.

    Snow makes everything so beautiful, it hides the dirt and the trouble although in this land, it causes chaos because our people can’t organize themselves and are always caught short.

    I’ve just been re-reading the Spanish Armada and we ran out of powder in 1588. So it’s an old syndrome.

    We are pretty clear here in Cambridgeshire. Those snow pictures look really scenic. Hope you are warm and stocked up with plenty of food.

    No snow, bloody cold, a little bit of left over powder snow on all north facing pavements from last Friday.

    Sunny, breeze, 11°C in Classic City.
    We only get one snow per year if any. Last year’s did some chaos, though more from ice than snow.

    Looks like the pictures I posted at my blog of my neighborhood.
