Anyone else getting snow ?
« on: December 01, 2009, 06:18:54 pm »
......or is it just me  ???

It's been coming down constantly for the last 3 and a half hours now ! And mostly it's melting so hopefully not too much disruption for me tomorrow  ;)

Well you can keep it there. It was -5 here this morning and the rain has been threatening for the last hour which is worrying. Don't want any snow.

We had some yesterday but it's so bloomin cold here we can't do anything. The ground is like rock.
Our holding has Anglo Nubian and British Toggenburg goats, Gotland sheep, Franconian Geese, Blue Swedish ducks, a whole load of mongrel hens and two semi-feral children.

I was told there's rain forecast for Thursday.  It's blooming cold here tonight in Clacks.  Wish I'd put in my wood burning stove last year.  No chance of getting it for Christmas either now!

We now have heavy rain, or at least I think it's rain. You see we haven't had any for about 24 hours so naturally I have forgotton what rain looks like. ;D

My ducks and chickens have been delighted today.  Wandering around on dry but extremely cold and extremely hard grass!  Instead of very wet and very muddy sand.  I don't like snow either so the longer it stays away the better.  I want a good old fashioned coal fire!  To hell with carbon emissions.................... ::)

My ducks came out their house this morning and some of them made straight for the pond, but discovered they could only walk on it and not swim - oh if looks could kill. They made straight for the gate which meant freedom and the river, didn't even stop for any breakfast. Luckily the river doesn't freeze with it being tidal.
