Wonderful! I love those sparkles in the snow.



We used to (I'm in Hamilton). It snowed three times last year I think and it wasn't enough to play in. <_<

It looks just like a picture postcard.
I keep expecting a robin it's that inundated with snow.
However it's a different reality in the UK.
It's been a pretty mild winter by all accounts.
All we've got so far are rain,blowing gales and frost.
What little snow I've seen hasn't really got a stranglehold.
I still think we need to be stockpiled with grit and rock salt though.
Tbh I hate snow because it causes havoc with the footie schedules.

If anyone wishes, I can share the downpour of torrential rain that's currently gracing my part of the UK. :(

Me too! The stream's burst its banks and the lower field's flooded right up to the fences. If it comes up any further, the lower part of the lane (our only link to the outside world) will be cut off! Better check the emergency supplies......Yes, plenty of rum in the cupboard!

Just enough to tide us over until the Flood-Aid cheques arrive from Bangladesh and Sri Lanka, (which I'm sure are in the post!) Hmmmmm.

Just found this on Tatty's camera.... Lower Field......I think it's September this year. I have a feeling it's going to be worse now!

It's too late for sharing because I've already been lumbered with it!
Round my area we get a lot of crazy paving and lopsided roads.
So everything is absolutely saturated with nowhere for the rain to drain off.
I'm quite willing to make a trade for some real shirt-sleeves weather.

it's not so attractive now that the wind has blown the snow off of all the branches. still, snow has a way of making everything look fresh and clean, and it smells divine!

Finally getting a decent amount of snow here tonight!  We're only expecting about 15cm, but it's the most snowfall yet for the area.  
This was the park near me 2 hours ago.

Great pics JGirl and sarah_444!
We had a white Christmas and it was beautiful, but I don't have any pics.  It rained all night and the rain turned to freezing rain and then snow about 2:30pm Christmas Day...before dark we had about 4 inches on the ground.  Thanks again for sharing your beautiful pictures. :)

This just goes to show the devious beauty of snow.
It's no joke when the frost gets it's claws into it.
When the snow is so icy it's amazing how to stay on two feet.
I prefer walking on glowing embers than doing it gingerly on a death trap.
I'll have to say though the snow is more persistent in the States.
I actually admire your pluck at something that freaks me out.
However me not being jealous of snow is the understatement of the week.
It's the realist in me you see...

i can't remember the last time i wiped out on slippery ice or snow
good winter boots have the proper soles to prevent that.
i could never live somewhere that was warm all the time.

not really a postcard type pic, but it shows the futility in shovelling the walkways to my front door lol
i shovel it snows, i shovel it snows.
i wouldn't bother but the postal workers will not deliver mail if you don't shovel your walks.
