Snow on a rope

We didn't get as much snow down Southampton way as other places in the UK seem to have had over the weekend.

Snow on a ropeAh well. It was enough to make everything look beautiful under a blanket of white, for a while at least.

I love the fact that when it snows, it snows on everything.

Ordinary things, like this piece of rope, seem to take on a completely different quality.

A note to readers in colder climes - We are not that used to snow here in England, so it's fun to get snow once in a while. Not too much or too long mind.

    I agree with you Tim. Even though dealing with it here in NEW York can get to be a pain sometimes, I do love it when there is a fresh cover. It makes everything, even the ugly look beautiful. It's gone now in my area and is only a fond memory until next Winter I hope :) .

  4. Hey anonymous

    I guess some people need to stand out in the snow longer than others ;)

  5. The GVRD, or Greater Vancouver Regional District to which this area of the south coast is referred to doesn't get much snow either. Especially at sea level. Unlike in the interior, there isn't much of a need for proper snow tires on vehicles so when it does snow, and then it is a terrible slushy mess, all hell breaks loose.

    As well, we have had a miserably long and cold "spring". Though the cherry blossoms are out much of the leaves on the trees are slow to come too.

    Makes me want to move to Oz.

  6. hey TZ. I bet Tony R. would have a comment about this post. last time i saw him he was over his head in the snow and had shoveled a tunnel from his house to the road up there in St. Anthony Newfoundland you know the place! They had polar bears passing through there last week as well. So long for now! Rick and karen aboard the almost snow free Wanderbird.

  8. Hi Rick & Karen

    Snow is great - in small, manageable doses.

    Except, of course, for skiing & other fun winter activities ;)

    Cheers
