Snow, but not a lot.

The forecast was showing 24 hours of snowfall from yesterday evening so we woke up expecting (hoping?) to be snowed in.  However the ground was still visible through the snow that had fallen. We quickly found out that reason we had not got the snow was because it had all gone to РSheffield.

More snow did fall during the day but the temperature only momentarily dipped below freezing:

Which meant the day was as much marked by the drip drip of melt as by falling snow.

There was much bird activity around the feeders including this great spotted woodpecker on the peanuts:

Snow of this consistency was not to Maisie’s liking, turning her feet into collections of ice balls:

Snow is falling again this evening and at the moment we have three or four inches – nothing to match Sheffield I know.
