Yet more snow..........


064

Hello there. I had plenty of good intentions of writing something interesting, but that was before I fell asleep in the rocking chair.

I was waiting for the pictures to load, and they took forever, hence the snooze. Mum had an appointment at the doctor's this afternoon to check her medication, and after inching our way out of the road here, which has never seen any form of snow and ice treatment EVER, we stopped on the hill to watch the kids tobogganing. Apparently over the weekend, you could hardly see the snow, there were so many people. Most schools are closed today, so the children had a great Snow Day. The farmer lets everyone use his hill whenever it snows. Nice man.

So we stopped at Jean's because I happened to know she was making fresh scones. Coffee or tea and jam scones? Yes please. Her icicles were rather impressive.

While we were there, I popped over to the Rec (recreation ground) to take some different snow pictures. You can see the church tower here, and the Mound - down to what must have been a moat or something. This is the steep tobogganing run around here, and that green grass is pure ice so the speeds were very fast for the daredevils.

The church looks very different in the snow. The tower is over 1000 years old, but I have told you that before, I am sure.

The church is on the Square, on the high hill part, and there is the Square with its treacherous iced car park, through that entrance.

So you get to see a different part of the "patch" today because I am about to fall asleep again. Maybe tomorrow I will be more lively. One lives in hope!

It is so pretty. It looks like a postcard, but I am sure the roads are dangerous with the ice. Looking forward to more pictures.

What does your sister think about all of your snow?

I love the photo of the church in the snow. It looks so beautiful!

Lovely...sorry that the roads aren't as safe as one would like. I am afraid to drive on ice so you did very well. I don't know that I've ever seen so much of your charming community. The church looks so pretty in snow that it would make a perfect postcard. Scones...coffee...ahhh...
