    maybe that should be unfortunately steve
    very few people are able to get in to work at the moment that even alot of shops in leeds city centre are closed!

  • Yeah it’s very quiet at work too but at least I’m not bored. LOL

    Wow!!!! Good shot steve. Is this a normal drop?

  • Many thanks, Ralph. Far from normal, Ralph. This started with a snowfall just prior to Christmas which got compacted, half thawed and turned to ice. On top of this there was another fall of snow on the Sunday after Christmas. This also got compacted. It snowed all day on Tuesday this week and then again this morning. The cold spell is set to continue so it looks like we’re stuck with the snow for the forseeable future. Then will come the thaw – then will come the floods. All good fun! ;-(

    The news over here says you folks are having a dreadful cold spell with no end in sight. While I love the white snow, you have my sympathies on the numbing cold that you are not acclimatised to.

  • Many thanks, Al – and for the sympathy.

    So much for “global warming”, eh??? ;o) Looks rather like our road – trouble is today it has frozen, we’re on a hill and if we drive out, we won’t get back up, so I’m rounding up some huskies and walking to Sainsburys…… Keep warm! ;o) Spare a thought for our doves which are nesting through all this!

  • Many thanks, Krys. Yeah, the wildlife really suffers when it’s like this. Although we are in a city suburb we get foxes, squirrels. hedgehogs and birds of all varieties, so we put food out for them.

    Well, what are you waiting for, Watson – get thee a snow shovel & get to work! Looks pretty normal to me, though we haven’t had the pile-up that many places have gotten. As for global warming – you & I know that these extreme weather events are part of that awful package. I say stay home with your cuppa, & enjoy the view!

  • Many thanks, Sheila – and for the good advice (not the bit about the shovel) LOL
