Spring is a Long Way Off

Spring is a long way off and there is very little sign of it as yet.
These Crocus flowers are really struggling to show, with temperatures of -3 celsius (26f) in the day time and -11 celsius (12f) at night with snow storms every few hours.




Its depressingly typical that when the UK gets 10 centimetres of snowfall the country comes to a grinding halt. Roads become treacherous and in places areas are cut off. Trains stop running, schools close and all manner of major problems occur.
We are not and never will be prepared for moderate snowfall lasting a few days.
Its a good job that our Royal Marine Commandos train in Norway, at least the military is prepared.

Below are a few local (mostly) Park scenes.

  4. We'd moan if we spent a fortune on snow preparations and only used stuff once every ten years or so. Enjoy it while it lasts, though I haven't ventured outside the last couple of days - more because of the icy wind than anything. Great shots, Roy.
