A Bit of Winter

As you can see from the picture, we had a touch of snow down here yesterday.

It was a lot different up on the land. Andy says there were 6 to 8 inches of snow and the wind was fierce. He didn’t take a walk and didn’t take pictures because the visibility was so poor. And he came home early because he thought the wind might have downed more trees. There was one small one across the road, but he could drive around it and will remove it today.

What a difference a few miles can make.

  1. Looks like you just have what they used to call ‘a dusting’ of snow. Not too hard to take. And it seems you have some sunshine, lucky guys!

      Yes, we get a lot of sunshine during the winter. Too much this winter, no doubt, but I figure we can worry about the drought and forest fires later. Might as well enjoy it while it’s here.

    Looks cold! Not a great lover of snow and cold.

    it does look cold, but then again right now – I’m sweltering…it was lovely when it grew dark around early arvo and down came a lot of rain – even in the air-con bus, people were putting on jackets. We stepped of the bus – 1/2 metre of rain to the shelter…by the time my local bus came it was drying and sunning as if nothing had happened. Now it’s humid as here…

    I’m probably a bit more sweaty because I’ve been picking/cutting/folding greenery thrown just anywhere on my back “hard” place – one garbage bag full, the other just started…& any of the nasty prickly stems/leaf things straight into the garbage bin…

    decided to fix the back area – the are I had hoped to do Xmas on but as some know some silly man left his “digger” right where i didn’t want…no asking either…

    a few miles and some elevation!
    our winds were fierce here today and yesterday also.
    one registered gusts of 56 mph. our were only 51.
    definitely not wise to drive a high profile vehicle.
    once when I worked at the hotel and conference center I saw a little older lady go down on the sidewalk. I ran to her to see if she was hurt. I helped her up. she was small.
    it was this kind of windy day with strong gusts.
    I said “Ma’am are you okay? are you hurt?”
    she kind of laughed and smoothed down her skirt. she was adorable.
    she said “Well honey! I’m ok. I guess I just blew right off the curb!”
    and then she laughed!
    then we both had a laugh. she was delightful. I walked with her on into the hotel. what a little trooper she was! I still think of her on days like this.

      We get wind down here in the spring — I used to laugh that I needed ankle weights to keep from flying away. I love your story about the lady. How wonderful she was.

    Is it unusual to get snow where you live? We don’t get it but this winter is the first one that has shown inconsistent temperatures affecting health. I am feeling the cold like I have never felt before. Perhaps it is my age!

    We finally had a little bit of snow last week — about as much as you have in your picture. Our lowest temperature was 7°F — too cold this far south, but it is what it is. Sunday was a lot warmer — 65°F — followed by storms that night, with 3/4 inch of rain, and cooler temperatures.

    I’m looking forward to spring.

    Stay warm!

      7°F is a lot colder than what we’ve had here! I think the temperature was about 13°F on our porch yesterday morning, but on the whole this has been a warm, dry winter.
