We ain’t goin’ anywhere

The guys in the met office have got things right and we have woken up to a fair few inches of snow this morning.
The wind was howling last night, and the heating kicked in a few times, so temperatures had dropped as they forecast.
At 8am we could still make out the kerb opposite, and as they are about three inches high, it gives you an idea of true depth.
However, it has been snowing all morning, and the white-out has obliterated the view of the beach flats. An hour and a half later the kerbside has disappeared.

The above is yesterday’s picture.
Here are today’s at 7.am (Hubby’s) and mine at 9.45 respectively.

This is directly opposite us now. Our front lawn and the road are there, honest!

Maggie is feeling the cold despite us putting on her jacket, second waterproof topcoat and fluorescent jacket to provide her with layers to face the chill. The wind is bitter, and she has been sick this morning, so we are keeping her warm and staying indoors.

Note:
10 am, the sun is out and the snow has stopped.

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have an elderly dog called Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

  1. Our weather has been unusual this last week. It has been a mixture of ran, snow and sun and extreme cold. I finally got to do grocery shopping and load up with essentials as it is so hard to get to a store and I can depend on the caregivers getting the right brands. One even went to another store. Some will be gone longer than necessary, others will bring back the wrong brand or forget something you need and offer to make another trip to get it. No time for housework.

    That’s a lot of snow! Hope you can all keep warm πŸ™‚

    • Snug as a bug as they say. The house maintains a temperature of 18 degrees during the day which is plenty warm for us. It’s quite sunny now so Hubby has taken Maggie out for a short walk, having made sure she’s well wrapped up bless her.

      • scifihammy says:

        Yeah the older dogs can start to feel the cold. LM lies in full sun on the hottest days here! πŸ˜€

      • Maggie likes the sun, but there’s not much of it at the moment. We’re due to have winds of 57 Km/ph all day today.

        I see the storms all over the UK. My girls are in Scotland – brrrrr!

      • Oh Sci. My thoughts are with you all as Scotland is due to be hit really hard. The wind hasn’t let up all day, and the zero temperature currently has a real feel of minus 11 here. Accidents are rife (we have a new wall arrangement on the main road), deliveries are delayed, schools are closed and public services aren’t running. We’re staying indoors, though Hubby has walked the dog round the block as he needed to exercise his legs. They both came back like frozen popsicles, and he was only out fifteen minutes.

    Wow, those photos look like Canada in December.

    • Welcome to the East Coast of Lincolnshire UK!

        I saw something posted on facebook yesterday about it snowing in Positano. When has that happened before? It’s all upside down β€” and it was 12 celsius in Toronto yesterday when the normal temperature is 2. Climate change is real.

    It is very strange looking at your pics, and then looking out of our windows. We should be up to our “whatevers” in snow now, but a mild spell came in a few days ago and our snow has virtually all gone. Our winter recreational areas are not too happy! πŸ™‚

    • We have storm Emma coming this week too which is bringing more snow by all accounts. Neither of us worry about the snow so much, it’s the wind chill that gets us every time, and there’s no escaping from it. It’s been gloriously sunny for the last hour and the snow had started melting on the pavement. It’s snowing again now with a temperature of minus 1, but that wind is bitter, which is why the real feel is minus 15, For me to feel cold is unusual. And believe me, I am!
