The lights are on

Today, the lights are on - but there has been no-one home.

I was tired yesterday as a result of my moon-watching but today is a whole 'nother universe.  That is always the way when I miss sleep, I'm moderately OK the following morning but the day after - forget it 😴  

At last we have 'proper snow' in the distance, whilst Bag End just had cloud and the occasional hail shower.



Whiteside living up to her name:



Far too cold to even think about getting on in the garden, so I spent another day scanning photos.  I have finished the Rhodes holiday and moved on to skiing pictures, which seemed appropriate given the conditions. This was the view from my kitchen in France :-)

  1. That France photo looks like some serious snow. It's been really weird here today - fine early this morning, rain turning to sleet when I came out of work, more rain, sunshine and blue sky followed by more sleet then fine late afternoon. When I got home from work at 7.30pm I found the immediate area covered in snow but everywhere else just wet - that's what comes of living halfway up a hill with an open field at the end of the street :( Incidentally, have a look at my latest blog post if you have time, you might just say "Awww" :)

    1. You're right - I did say "aww" a lot.

      We had huge amounts of snow but it rarely caused the problems that a couple of inches inflict on the UK.

  2. We had snow - well - more like dandruff - on and off all day and all it did was make everything look driech and dreary - your view is so much nicer!
    Sleep well xx

  3. As I said, missed sleep is not to be taken lightly. :-)

    What a beautiful mountain! But our snow, is not in the distance, it's right here, all over, right here.

    Flat roofs in that French ski area... Mmmmm.... I see they shoveled the edge, but wouldn't a steep, metal roof, make more sense?

    1. Some roofs are flat and have to be manually cleared which is hard work, there are also steep pitched ones which don't build up the snow, but are more likely to 'dump' on someone underneath!

  4. Snow and hailstones on and off here but too wet to stick but I could see snow on Snowdonia.
    Beautiful photos of Whiteside, I've not heard of it before but Googled it of course.

    1. Whiteside is gorgeous, the ridge along its top is one of the finest in the National Park.
      Have a look at 3 October 2013 (good grief, it's 5 years since I went up there . . . )

  5. Gorgeous shots of the mountains.
    For the last two mornings we’ve had severe weather warnings for ice. At +3C???? Correct me if I’m wrong, but isn’t that fairly mild for winter? What would they do if we had an American style ice storm?

    1. My car does the same thing - at +3 degrees it warns me that roads 'might' be icy.

      If we have a 'proper' ice storm here I suspect the media and weather forecasters will wear themselves into a frenzied little tizz!
