Friday Forecast....week 5....on a Sunday!!!......5/02/12

Yes it's forecast time....yes it's late...but I really wanted to wait to see if we got the snow that was predicted.

The front garden...not exactly covered in snow....but it is quite deep in places!!

Well the long and short of it is we did get the snow...though not in a remarkably bad way though the wind was quite strong and it caused drifting in places.
The weather over the last week has been cold with most days not getting above freezing point.

In itself the snow has brought us some warmer weather and at the moment it's already thawing...the problems will occur if it then freezes overnight as the slush and wet will then be black ice and cause major disruptions!!

But all in all though a cold week quite a bright one with some lovely sunrise's and sunsets.

Hopefully the snow won't hang around for long and spring soon turns up on our doorstep...on the plus side I have been getting on with some knitting though.

Hope the weather isn't too bad wherever you're reading from.

Stay warm!!

  1. Knitting sounds like a fine thing to be doing when you're in the middle of a cold spell. It's a bit cold here but not really that close to freezing.. Though when I see your front garden it makes me wish for just a sprinkle of it here too :)

    1. Don't wish too hard Tanya else you could end up with more than a sprinkle!!

  3. I'm quilting a baby blanket for a cousin (due in March) when it's too cold to go out. No snow here, but was awfully cold when I tried to go down to the allotment mid-week - couldn't get the fork in (and we've got sandy soil there). Off to have another go today, hoping that later in the day is a bit easier ;-)

    1. Hope you managed to get your fork in the ground at some point. Quilting a blanket sounds lovely, although I have no idea how to di it I think it requires quite a lot of sewing which isn't my favourite thing so I will stick with my knitting!!

  4. The snow arrived here yesterday. It was forecast to start around 6pm but it actually started at lunchtime and didn't let up until I was going to bed. We've had quite a covering, you can't see Archie's legs when he's out in it. He's just been out for a walk and has come in covered in snowballs where it all sticks to his long fur, it's so hard to get off him. It's started to thaw now, though I don't think it will all go just yet.

  7. Dear Tanya, The weather is actually quite nice here in LI,NY. It is perfect for taking a walk. I am very pleased with the winter we are having. It is chilly, but after all it is winter. Blessings, Catherine xo

    1. I guess I don't mind the cold...after all I understand the reason for the season...but the cold combined with the snow and the wind is just too much....the weather should be much kinder!!

  8. You have more snow than I do right now. And I'm in a part of my country that is known for having a lot of snow. Last year there was so much snow here that it caused bad flooding last spring. There was still standing water from that flooding when I got here last fall. This year we've had almost no snow.
