Snow in January 2010

 

Many parts of the U.K. experienced lots of snowfall, bringing chaos for some, others it was fun.  Schools closed and motorists having gone out or coming home became stuck in snow drifts. Cars had to be abandoned and motorists had a long cold walk home.

Children were delighted as they built snowmen, went toboggoning.      Ice skating on the fozen ponds happenned in the past.  Today we are more aware of the dangers and advice given not to carry out this activity as in parts the ice on the ponds/lakes could possibly be thin in places.

Wild life too were seen by detecting their prints in the snow.            More birds came to gardens to be fed.  It was interesting to note that nature has a way of helping the birds — swans & ducks —–  by leaving a corner of the pond clear from ice.

Here where I live we were lucky as it appeared we were on the edge of the snow being not very deep, and gone quickly.       Had the snow run out when it got to us?

Activities that I attend were cancelled the first two weeks but now the snow has gone,       rain falls, it’s milder and life is back to normal.
