Our first lot of proper snow on the land. Okay so it snowed last January too, but that snow didn’t hang around for ages. This January we’ve been snowed in for seven days! a whole week!!
Apart from missing a couple of events I really wanted to attend, being snowed in has been wonderful. We had enough food, the boiler kept working and we placed a few hay bales round the water pipes to stop them from freezing. If any of those things had been different, this might be a very differently toned post. But as it was, once we realised we weren’t going to be going anywhere for a while, we could just relax and appreciate the beauty of our surrounding snowscape.
