first snow

Post by stuck »

We woke up to a slight covering of snow. Barely enough to make footprints and definitely not enough to make a snowman but enough to tempt me out with my camera.

These holy berries are not far from our house.

We had the first snow of this season yesterday.

It snowed again last night, but that vanished almost immediately in the morning.

Thanks Ken; a thread to which I can contribute!
I apologise for submitting a non-current photo; this one was taken on the thirteenth of this month.

Hans, I submit three more images which, at your discretion, you might shovel into two new threads titled "seventh snowfall" and "first snow plough".
Thanks, Chris

This is a shot down my driveway which, thankfully, doesn't require me to don a pair of gloves and one of my half-dozen snow-shovels.
At a quarter to ten, my shadow reminds me that in just 21 more days, the days will start getting longer. :clapping: :hairout: :grin: :thankyou:
Top Left RIGHT! you can see David's new 900-square-foot garage which I spent hours helping him to build. Details on request.

This is a photo of the first pass of the town snow plough; this morning at 2:00 a.m. Little detail is available because:-
(1) I was only half-awake
(2) I was aiming at the bedroom window, which faces south, whereas the street is to the north of me and
(3) My new curtains are effective at blocking all the light except the halogen headlights from the car parked a street away from me.
Cheers, Chris

No snow here, but it was freezing cold this morning, and I was delivering leaflets door-to-door with no gloves on!

I am re-wading (the appropriate verb) through my collection of The Goon Show audio tracks, so I have to ask, why do you expect doors to be wearing gloves?

Doors can wear gloves if they want. It's cold out there.

And a thread to which I cannot possibly contribute, unless I hijack it in some way. Which I'm about to do.

The glove box in my car has a door.

I concede. :hailpraise:
After all, doors do have door handles.

We got our first moderate bit of snow at the end of last week

Personally I find the views after the first bit of snow amongst the most beautiful.
Sunday was cold but sunny, so I went for a walk in the snow and sun along my favourite track

I decided to finish tidying up and chopping up the trees I cut in half last Sunday. I got a bit tired towards the end, and the last three looked so nice already decorated for Xmas with their pretty cones …. So I decided to re plant them ( tie them to the Pallet Platform that I sit on at my Grilling evenings at "my" railway station ) and give them a reprieve, at least until New Years Eve, when I expect to have a burn up there again, grilling some potatoes , and veggie Burgers.

It got me thinking, .... of perhaps starting a new tradition. - As the long dark cold evening drags on, waiting for midnight, I anticipate perhaps getting short of fire wood, maybe instead of fireworks, it would be convenient to burn away the Xmas trees.
