Microclimate

Last year the strange microclimate which surrounds Bag End completely shielded us from "The Beast from the East".  Looks like our meteorological strangeness continues, which is good, because whilst looking at snow on the fells is wonderful, looking at it outside our door is no fun.





Madam loves it when the ground is frosty and had a mad minute first thing, but after that she wanted to go inside and get warm.

  1. My Daisy, you are just so cute in your coat & posing for the camera. You need some boots to keep your feet warm. Big hugs from Auntie Susan down under. Keep warm all & take care.

  2. I agree with Susan above. Daisy needs some dog booties, added to her lovely coat. :-) Then she might want to spend more time, out in the frosty world.

    1. A long time ago we tried to find boots which fitted Daisy, not for the cold, but to try and protect her against grass mites or whatever it is that affects he skin so badly every summer.

      Epic fail . . . She is the wrong shape for everything we tried.

  3. I think the best place to see snow is on the inside looking out unless there's no other choice. I could never play out in it for long when I was a kid as my feet would turn to painful blocks of ice within minutes - they've got better as I've got older but I still prefer to be warm and cosy inside. I've often wondered how animals manage in the snow when they don't wear boots like we do :)

    1. Snow is lovely if (a) you’re dressed for it and (b) you don’t need to be somewhere else in a hurry!

  4. I don't like snow and ice underfoot and it's not been too bad here either, one of the benefits of living on the coast I think. Daisy doesn't look too bothered and she looks like she's asking if you're ready to play with her, very cute :)

    1. Like you Eileen, we get a lot of protection from being so close to the coast, but I thought I saw your area might get snow tonight?

    1. I do, Sue. We do keep her outdoor coat on the radiator so it’s like putting on warm PJs, does that count?
