Well I wish the snow had come and gone here so bloody fast!Replace the word 'days' with 'weeks' and it's a more accurate representation of the snow situation in Durham. I must need to move further North to avoid the evil stuff, however counterintuitive that sounds!xxx
In all fairness, the snow did last a bit longer than three days. A little over a week, maybe? Or longer.. I can't really remember! It definitely wasn't as bad as all the snow further south, though. Considering all the flooding and snow you've had down there over the past year, I'd say we get off fairly lightly up here. So much for all those 'Scotland has the worst weather' preconceptions, eh?Hopefully things are back to normal for you now. Take care, Jess. x
I love seeing what appears to be little sheep that have popped up out of nowhere post-snow.
Your comment made me chuckle a little bit. Possibly because it makes me picture sheep as these little oblivious yet indestructable things that just...pop...up out the ground, still chomping away. Thank you for that :D
Look like here! 6 inches of snow drops overnight, is gone by the following afternoon, then we get another 4 inches overnight that turns to ice because the temperature dropped down to -16 C. And today it's back up to 12 C. I'm expecting a tornado any day now....
-16c?? Are your toes even still attached to your feet after that? We had another random snow day this week - literally just one day, to such an extent that I get a call telling me not to bother coming to work. And then, next morning it's all gone...I think the weather is having mood swings.
Ours looked like some combination of your Saturday + Sunday for a couple days and now it's 17/18degrees C today!! (Though rainy) The weather is officially nuts.Also, just have to say that I'd lovelovelove to live somewhere near to that many sheep!!! (assuming those small white fluffy things in the picture are sheep)
They are indeed sheep. I have to admit, I'm always a little baffled when I discover there are people out there who have never a. lived near sheep or b. seen a sheep in real life. They are EVERYWHERE here (but then I guess some people can say that about kangaroos, and I bet there are plenty of 'normal' wildlife specimens to you that I'd get all giddy about because they seem exotic to my Scottish eyes). It's a bit like someone's been decorating and discovered an empty wall or corner of the room and wondered what to put in it, only it's more a case of, "Hmm, what should we do with this blank patch of land?""Oh, I know! SHEEP!!"To be honest, you're not missing out on much. They just kind of loll around the fields. They seem a bit oblivious to everything that goes on around them. I still kind of like them though :)
