Snow days

It feels as though we have had an exceptional amount of snow this year and the winter has only just begun.  I have never really enjoyed the winter and always been worried about slipping, falling over and all that kind of thing.  This year though I have so far enjoyed all the snow.  It helps that it fell over the holiday period and I didn't need to go anywhere.

I have taken quite a large number of photographs and put some of them in the slide show at the side of the blog.  Here is my favourite picture for today.  This is just a few yards along the road from the bottom of my drive.  I think a few tractors have been around the road today but very little else.  I did go for a short walk along the dale, the farthest I have been for days, but it was snowing again gently as I returned home.  Most of the day I have been in the studio with the fire going and plenty to keep me occupied.

Ah... sounds and looks idyllic!

Did you know you can buy "snow chains" for shoes/boots? They are elasticated and just clip on. A great feeling of security in bad weather :)

He he... word verification is diging - how much snow do you have!!!!

You are so fortunate to have so much snow and that your workshop is so close to your home. I am itching to get back to work but our lane to the main road is so icy, that I feel as though it is an unnecessary risk. Enjoy all the lovely snow!

way too much snow to bother to dig any of it :)
