weather Wednesday


in which our plucky heroine does her best to keep warm, as the second snow of the season begins...

The dry new snow is filling in the gaps between the concrete pathway "stones" and amongst the gravel in the side yard. The forecast is for the temperatures to continue to fall, and by Saturday be only barely creeping above freezing at the warmest, and then falling back down into the 20's... not my favorite sort of weather!

went out back to take in the chook water, which has turned to icy slush in the bitter cold, and noticed how the very dry tiny snow bits were lining up on the centers of the fern fronds...

There were tears... this is so sweet... (I first found Raymond Briggs via his also iconic graphic novel "When the Wind Blows" which is anything but sweet, and only later found "The Snowman". This sequel was made by the same team that put together the original Snowman animation)

  1. We have had it cold in our area also. We also had 4.5" of snow fall on the weekend. It looks like it will warm up on Monday. Hope it warms up for you also.

    1. Where I live is just not really set up for snow, because it is not frequent... which means not enough plows to really clear things well, side streets often go unplowed at all... so when it does snow it really bollixes up travel on roads and highways. Fortunately I can simply stay home for a bit, fingers crossed we do not also lose power
