Default A real winter

Well further to the little sideways snow, Friday we had some more gentle snow falling, it fell for some hours so lucky for us it was only lightly snowing. Started just after midday here and snowed on into the night then it froze. Today Saturday awoke to freezing fog and a temperature of -12.5 degrees C according to the car read out. The car was a bug bear to start but it finally caught. Had to stop by the post office and then onto the kennals to get doggie fodder.

It's now 12:32PM and the sun is trying to break through and it's still -10 out there. While walking the dog on the filed came across a red patch of snow which appears to be the result of a Barn Owl kill. No tracks to the disturbed patch of snow so the hit must have come from above and the rodent, I assume, was under the snow. Would ahve like to witness it but there you go. The Barn Owl patrols every day.
