Pepper and Maisie had fun. Lily stayed indoors - well, she is 14 and a half.

Hello Nola - and everyone else.

Snow has stopped and temp. here has gone up a degree so now there's a lot of dripping going on. I don't think it will clear before nightfall, though, so we'll have lovely ice everywhere. Supposed to be going to play rehearsal tongiht, OH is clearing driveway as we speak.

Neighbour, whose tree it is, came round to help move the branch. Fortunately only minor damage to edge of roof so we should stay dry. Gutter's a bit squished but he said he'll fix it when the snow's gone.

Have sorted bird food and water so nothing to do now until coffee time. Will take a wander down to the Sandwich shop and have some of the lovely coffee there, might also be tempted to have a piece of cake. Might - who am I kidding?

Yes, Glyn, that's what I thought, didn't seem to occur to OH, though!!

Chickens scratching here too, Geoff. No crooks either, I think we have neighbourhood watch to thank for that 

Maisie, westie, is sitting on a chair looking out the window and wuffing at the snow coming down, not sure what she thinks it is.

And Dove, I'm sure Ofsted's just as nasty whichever line of work one's in, hope you had a consolation cake or two afterwards.

Morning, I think. Still rather dark.

About a couple of ins. of show, still falling lightly and on the wet side. Was lying in bed contemplating getting up when the most awful noise like thunder, only scrapier, was right overhead. I sent OH who was dressed to investigate. He announced, A tree's fallen down. Where? said I. Outside, came the reply. Whereupon the noise came again. Got up to find out something sensible and found a large branch from one of next door's tall conifers has fallen on to the roof right above my bed and was sliding down hence the scrapey noise. Waiting for light to see if any damage.

Morning all, just nipping in for registration.

Not so cold here today, no frost though snowflakes that fell yesterday are still on roofs across the road. White chaenomeles outside the front door is heaving with buds, always an early flowerer.

Dove, I know you won't get this until it's over, but teachery waves of goodwill are heading your way.
