More snow.

The back and front of the house and the streets leading to the centre of the village this morning.

Well, Christmas day may have been free of falling snow but we've had quite a lot since then. This morning after it stopped snowing there was about 15" level fall. Luckily there hasn't been a puff of wind otherwise things could have been a lot worse. As it is, the only things moving around the village are 4-wheeled drives....and we don't have one. The bus route through the north side of the village is clear as it has been kept well salted and gritted but it is the getting there that is the problem.

Chic and I have another problem............we have only one pair of wellies between us and they are a must for this amount of snow.

I had to clear a bit for the dogs, and the pups in particular, to get out the door but they soon trampled it down a bit. Charlie wasn't too keen on the balls of snow collecting on his coat.
The 2 pups, in the bottom photo are now tired after all their playing in the snow and are huddling against the radiator for a heat and a sleep!

Yes, I can see you certainly HAVE had more snow. Thank goodness we don't have what you have, although the frost is killing - minus 9.5 last night, but up a bit this morning. Lethal walking outside here, and especially since there was a sudden flurry of sleety rain!

You sure did get more snow. I hope you and your pups are warm and cozy. Cute shot of the dogs out in the snow.

I would be the last to wish ill on anyone, but I am glad you have the snow and not me.

Gosh, your babies are so adorable. Are you planning to show them also?

It's not the norm to get so much snow here but it does happen every now and then---hence the ONE pair of wellies!

Goodness me, what a lot of snow. My son-in-law's nephew set off up the A9 early this morning to come here but gave up and went home. I hope you can get another pair of Wellies soon looks like you'll need them. The pups are so cute.
