I know it is pathetic compared with Ponita's snow falls but it could be the start of something big!

Oh Pat. . .
What a Beautiful photo.
I have always enjoyed your garden photos but this one is lovely.
The first snow is great but after that I assume it is a burden?

We had our coldest Thanksgiving in I think 40 years, lows almost freezing but our day warm up nicely, 60 to low 70.
Soon our winter rains will be here with snow on the surrounding mountains but for now I can look at your snow and enjoy the view !

cheers, parsnip

John G: I'm an F girl myself but that sounds a bit nippy.

Parsnip: If I could see snow covered mountains in the distance my cup would be flowing.
Here it is unlikely to stick except up on Exmoor but the nurse who has just arrived has had a difficult journey with a big traffic build up.

It's good that you made the distinction between your snow and Ponita's snow. It shows you have a healthy sense of perspective! It's quite beautiful to look at from inside a toasty, warm house. It all goes to hell when you have to go out for a quart of milk.

Pat said...

UB: that made me laugh!

Keep it over there, Pat!

I was the designated driver of the 'Bandwagon' tonight, and the roads were, as we say here, 'Fair dicey'! No snow yet, but it's damn cold. I got everybody home safely though! :¬)

Pat said...

Judy: there's be more during the night and it's so quiet - even for here - we slept in.

Maapstew: do be careful. I felt sorry for our poor nurse last night - eventually leaving at 7pm for a long snowy drive back to Gloucestershire.

Scarlet Blue said...

SNAP!!
I heard it was worse your way though - it was all a bit of a surprise yesterday morning.

Pat said...

Scarlet: there's a deathly hush today and I'd better go and inspect the larder. I know we have lots of staples like wine and chocolate.

Scarlet Blue said...

It's very grey outside... I checked my freezer for supplies last night... I think I can last for a week..

Pat said...

Scarlet: Be nice if one could lose an ounce or two but one craves hearty soups and buttered rolls and horlicks and chocolate and mulled wine.

The rooves and cars here in Brussels had a dusting this morning but the sun is out. A bit early though, the leaves are not off all the trees yet.

It looks so pretty but I know it will also be very cold. I'm aware that chemo treatment can make the hands and feet more sensitive to cold temperatures than usual so please ask your dear husband to wear warm, woolley socks and gloves.

Fingers crossed that you get to visit you son. Sending care and cosily warm huggles to you each and both,

Michelle and a snoring Zebby Cat

Pat said...

Daphne: that's surprises me. I always imagine Brussels as bitter in the winter - rather like Vienna. Mind you I've ever been - to Brussels.

Thank you Mickle and Zebby: I believe cats give off heat - can't remember how much but I told MTL yesterday we should have cats in every room and I'll pass your kind message on. We've already noticed he feels the cold much more than I do.

What a beautiful photo, it makes me think of old cards from family overseas and stories our radio used to air.

I've experienced extreme [for me!] cold...4 degrees C. I totally sympathise with YTL. I feel the cold to my bones.

Warm soup with Caribbean stuff [yam, sweet potato, eddoe] would've been great, wish I could send you some. I hope you can stock up.

'Hush' makes me think of that song, 'there's a kind of hush, all over the world...'

Pat said...

GG: Mmmmh that soup sounds just the job;)

Ponita in Real Life said...

Pat, your snow compared to my snow is very different, but the effects are pretty much the same on getting about. We've had just over 50 cms (~20 inches) so far this month... However, we expect that sort of thing (although not quite this early) and have things like 4 wheel drive and winter tires (tyres?) plus salt and sand put on the roads to cope with it all. I do hope things settle so you can go on your little trip! It would do you good to get away for a bit and visit your son et al.
