January Brings The Snow

                            

The old rhyme goes January brings the snow, makes our feet and fingers glow. The last I heard the is March. March brings breezes loud and shrill stirs the dancing Daffodils. I don't know what has happened this year but at the moment we have about 10 inch of snow. It is many years since we had this amount of snow all in one go but being a bit selfish Stuart and I can enjoy it as we don't have to be anywhere.   Stuart worked in Edinburgh for 20 years and did the daily commute by car it was a big worry when the snow came. One winter it took him 8 hours to get home on a snowy day in January and was one of the last cars off the motorway before it was blocked and closed but today we can look our and enjoy the lovely snow. We just have to hope now it does not thaw too quickly as it will cause massive flooding.

Stuart is enjoying the first F1 race so that will occupy him then  rugby after that so I will have to find something to take up my day. Better go now and see how the pot of soup is doing have a nice day and I hope you have not got a lot of the white stuff . Love and take care

We did have a lot of snow but its melting now and I hope we don't get any more but we probably will .... you can neve tell until the end of March. One year not too long ago we had some snow in may... we made a little snowman but it was gone in 2 days.... now we want flowers and not snow though. :)  Sandra

Hi Joan. You have more snow than us..we have about 5 ins so far. For the last few hours it has been a mixture os sleet and snow so as it falls it isn't settling above the 5ins which is good.  As you say its fine if you don't have to go out in it.  Eve

Lovely Picture/Graphic ~
10 inches of snow ~ glad Stuart and you don't have to turn out in it, unless you want to. ~ I enjoy the Formula 1 racing ~ I think Dick brainwashed me into liking it lol ~ But Rugby never ~ cant understand the rules ~ enjoy the rest of the weekend ~ Ally

Hi Joan,  I wish we had at least some of it here in the South of England.  We`ve had the odd flake or two this year but snow has never been a problem here.  I suppose if we had it year in year out I wouldn`t like it so much.  But a nice healthy fall would be really nice!  Have a nice day and enjoy the snow. :o)
