Our snow is still with us, and is really wearing out its welcome now. All the Ooohs! & Aaahs! are giving way to the inconveniences like running out of bread,potatoes and other little 'luxuries' necessary to everyday life.
One of the downsides of living in the country is that, whilst all major roads are clear for traffic, our little country lanes remain blocked, so there was great excitement this morning when it started raining!
I never, ever thought that I would be glad to see rain after the deluge we suffered in November and early December, but at least I thought it would clear our lane and we could escape for a couple of hours- no chance. As well as the rain we have bitingly cold east winds and instead of thawing the snow, the rain is freezing on top of it and the whole surface is now like a big ice rink.
This is the glass on the porch door, and you can see where the rain has frozen before it's had a chance to run down.
Ah Well -at least we've still got some rice left , and I guess I'll just have to keep busy with some more sewing :-)
