Snow? What snow?

The ice on the pond has melted, and the diggers have begun to make their mark in the sand by levelling off parts of the beach.  They had a bit of a job getting down ONTO the beach as the floodgate was jammed shut by a huge sand drift.
They’ve closed the road so that they can clear away the sand on the roadside banks and pavements, and on the local radio news the authorities have told businesses to leave the clear up to them as they have to check the sand for contamination before returning it to the beach.
They will probably find a lot of unwelcome brown parcels in most of the pavement dunes.

Soon we will be back to this (photo taken January 2018)

Walking the dog through the park today, it was practically impossible to believe we were  up to our ankles in snow and almost getting blown over in heavy winds less than a week ago.
Whilst I haven’t exactly been walking without a coat, at least I haven’t been frozen to the core by the time I got back home, and we even walked Maggie this afternoon without the need for her little jacket, it was so mild and pleasant.

I’m making the most of the better weather and playing catch up with my walks.
I’ve had four today and covered just over four miles as we walked up into town, gone round the park and beach twice, and I’ve also walked round the Avenue.

About pensitivity101

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. Something about those walks after I’ve been cooped up because of the weather makes them extra sweet.
