And still it snows

Terrestrial TV gave up the ghost yesterday evening too, so Keith was even less happy, but this morning, a 'lump' of snow has fallen off the aerial and now he can at least watch Freeview and he has Sky Go too so is, at present, watching F1on his phone - fortunately via bluetooth, so I don't even have to hear it!

As you can see, the snow is still with us and increasing and multiplying as I write. This morning, I had to dig my way out through the conservatory door and then dig a pathway into the garden for the dogs to get out. What fun!

Even the washing line has come down with the weight of snow.
But Keith has his Formula 1 so all is well...


  1. Crickey what a lot of snow you've had :)

  2. Very wintry! It was snowing here this morning, but thankfully not settling. xx

  3. Amazing pictures Jenny - so late in March too! You lucky people! That fresh, chilly weather! So different from this sultry tropical warmth that I have to endure day by day. I guess that one day soon, springtime will really spring for you....

    1. Yes, we really are lucky, aren't we, YP ;)

  4. That is EPIC snow. I hope you have a nice full fridge, freezer, pantry and winerack to get you through being snowed up.

    My daughter's husband (they are in their early thirties) is also an F1 devotee. Since she has been with him these past seven years, she has grown to appreciate just how lo-o-o-o-o-ng the Grand Prix season lasts...

    Here in mid-Wales we have had 3" of snow (we are two fields away from the river Severn, so not high in the hills) and stuttering digital TV wwith two brief total "outages", so for Earth Hour last night we just gave up on it entirely, lit lots of candles, and The Husband practised his guitar for a bit.

    It was so soothing and restful.

  5. There is rather a lot of the white stuff isn't there. Glad to hear it was instrumental in restoring TV to the household! That's an unusual one.

    All traces of snow have gone for now, here, however, we have wind chill in force.
