Blizzard Conditions - I Love It

Getting ready for trek across the frozen wastes!

We woke up this morning in North Wilts to a blizzard.

The village street is deserted except for . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

Your delight in snow is ... indescribable at the moment. I, for one, am going right off the stuff.

...and us newspaper carriers are the most reliable and hardy souls!

Wow, you've really got it! We've had nothing but a bit of sleet.

Love the hat:-)

No blizzards up here in the frozen north. It is just damn cold. I am feeling a bit cheated.

Hi Lindsay. Found your weather forecast suggestion www.yr.no on another blog I read and think it is brilliant, thanks so much for the suggestion.

Still deep snow here and very cold!

Lindsay said...

Arcadian Advocate - glad you are now logging on to that weather site. I now use it as my main source for weather information. I see my brother in Australia is suffering 40C!

Thanks all for your comments.

It actually got up to 44.8C at our place yesterday and Melbourne had its hottest day since records began in 1855 at 46.4C. Unbelievably hot with gale force northerly winds that, as you probably know by now, fanned a large number of bushfires that, at the time of writing, have killed 25 people with the toll expected to rise. We've just seen aerial footage of, what was, a very pretty town called Marysville - estimates are that 80-90% of all houses have been razed.

By the way, I notice that you still manage to hide those clodhoppers in the snow!
Pip Pip!

Thanks for sharing the pictures. Living in Orkney I miss big trees in abundance, so I've had my "tree fix" looking at your blog!

Lindsay said...

Sian - I also love trees and feel I could not live anywhere without them!

Sian said...

Lindsay - I've just about learned to live without them in my daily life, but I do have to go for regular fixes on the Orkney Mainland where there ARE some real trees! And I turn into a tree hugger when I visit "south"!

What dedication to duty from your paperboy. I love his balaclava!
