Fantastic drifts! Hey, Peter, nobody's ever to old to get on a sled and go sliding!! Ask any of us up here in northern Minnesota where winter sports are bigger than summer ones!!

WOW Peter, you DID get some winter weather! It's gorgeous! I hope it's brief too.

I had no idea you had mountains like that! When I first saw this photo, I thought it was Alaska!

Oh, I could look at this all day.  Sort of wish I was there----- but only if younger and felt better.  It is so breathtaking.  Ooops... were there cars stuck? I didn't see that. Maybe I don't wish I were there.  A TEN!

Thanks for the comments everyone, past sledging now a responsible adult (fat chance) Up hill a little there were some drifts up to 10ft high, however I was determined to go the low way and look at the farms, so missed them.

Judging by how many cars are stuck in drifts neither had most Brits! Lovely though it is, it would be nice if it was gone by Monday, please!

About Cowgazer

Cowgazer

I am Peter, brought up in the center of Manchester, UK. But was a square peg in a round hole there, worked 33 years as stockman in dairy farming then made redundant. Luckily got a job managing a garden nursery for a couple of years, but had to leave as tenancy came to an end. Couldn't find work so relocated to Wales and am now a self-employed gardener, great move, good things come out of hard times. Digital tech has made photography affordable to me and I love it, compliments my walking and Birdwatching. At present on a steep learning curve, new things are always good, stretch your mind and keep you sane-ish.
