and yet more snow

It sounds like we'll be having a week's worth of snow at least, with more warnings coming our way from the Met Office.
There is plenty to do indoors and we can do our best to walk in between showers.
Only the postlady had been when we started . The car was abandoned there late last night.


 Snowman and his dog...
 We had a slight thaw this morning, so the walk was slushy in the village. As we headed out of the village at 2pm, the temperature dropped.
 You can see the next hail cloud...the tail of it caught us a quarter mile later



 We have a model of this on the mantelpiece..the tractor that the Pirate started his tractor life on, age 9...(but not this one!)
These are in the sheds at a local farm where there used to also be a corn mill




 and back up the hill to home.

The wintery showers were very fast moving here yesterday too. No sooner than thinking that there was a break in the clouds when the next sharp shower, sleet or ice pellets came flying down!

Lovely photos. I especially like the fifth one with the houses.

It’s odd to see that you have more snow than we do.
Toes crossed that the slush does not freeze and become dangerous ice.

I've only had hail happen in warmer weather, when a cold front comes in quickly. My favorite (it's hard to decide with so many) is the cloud with a heart of sunlight, just before the tractors pics. Now I see the little snow dog! Cute.

Those tractors are so attractive! as is the landscape--I can see why you're a printmaker, living there.
