The trouble with snow

Apologies for this. More white stuff. Seven days into snow-bound and my world has shrunk to 'getting in' and 'getting out'. We are in a little snow-cocoon which has narrow, slidey and dodgy lines to the wider world.
The truck and snow-drifts. Make a good name for a pub perhaps......
....and the lane looking west towards the Stiperstones - Bromlow Callow is the  tiny black 'eyebrow' at the very top left of the picture.

The road is clear (ish) and with a little care it was possible today to go down the hill to Marton and thence to Bishop's Castle.

I quite like our special isolation up here - we did choose to live here so really shouldn't complain - but how ordinary it is down below.

I must remind myself to be very careful of what I wish for.........

I love the luxury of being able to call the office to let everyone know that I 'won't be able to get out of the highlands today'...and no one ever questions it! I love a snow day.

I wonder who ploughs you out? Anyway, glad you got to have a trip out of the house. enjoy those views though - it looks gorgeous.

We have a tiny amount of snow compared to you. Can you see me waving from across the valley??
Great photos - take care and keep cosy.

Wow, you really have had a lot up there! Our is now starting to melt, though it's bound to freeze again tonight. The news said this morning that we're likely to have this until into the New Year now.

Beware after snow comes thaw and with it mud. We had rain last night and most of our snow has washed away I think it will take more than that to get rid of yours!! Very impressive display you could open your own ski resort!

With any luck I will be waving from that black eye brow tomorrow.

Oh my! Now I know why we on the other side of the Atlantic have had little or no snow so far this winter - however, each day it holds off makes the winter one day shorter, eh? Drive very carefully!!

Those are certainly impressive snowdrifts. I haven't bothered to go along out track to see what ours are like, it's been enough work feeding birds and hens. I'm beginning now to fret a bit about not being able to get out because there are things I need to do and being stuck is about to start costing me money, but like you, we chose to live here... :-)
