SNOW: Of Beauty and the Beast

December 24, 2009

Snow can be magically beautiful, it can also be utterly beastly and cause loss of life.
Here in a garden is is simply heavenly.
On Tuesday I did not stray from the house. I have had two lots of hospital treatments due to slipping on ice and I did not fancy such problems over Christmas. Yesterday we ventured out in the car. Our little road was icy but it was okay on the main roads. When we passed through Dalton, we saw very little of the white stuff, and arriving in Barrow not a single snowflake did we see. When I awoke this morning another fine layer of snow had fallen, on top of previous falls. So we took a photo just in case that might be the last snow we witness for a long time.
