Winter

We've had quite a lot of snow in Redesdale this week. Not as much, perhaps, as other parts of Northumberland, and certainly not as much, yet, as we had in the last week of the old year and the first two weeks of 2010 when I was snowed-in for three weeks. But worryingly, the large scar, marking a car-wide track down to the road that I dug out of the six inches of snow lying on my drive yesterday, was almost entirely filled by the overnight snow.

For all of this, the countryside around me is looking picturesque as I discovered this afternoon on a short walk up onto the village trail.

The views are stunning Emma but there is always the other side. How many people know what it means to be snowed in ??
Lets hope it isn't as bad for you as last year, but stays beautiful at the same time.

Wonderful views Emma. Just had an e-mail from friends living up the coquet Valley, they have 3 feet there and its drifting. Stunning though.

Hope you can find more practical ways to light the fire than I did.
Such stunning views can be so deceiving so tuck up warm.
