A Different Winter Day Altogether




This is not about to become a video blog, but the contrast with yesterday was so sharp that I went back to the house to get fresh batteries just so I could capture this. Oh, and where it gets all shaky.... that's because I was having a pretty hard time standing up.


See A Quiet Morning for the contrast

You are really brave to be out and about in that. I guess one gets used to that! I am a whimp. I'd be snuggled by the fire with a good book or someone who has read one. I love seeing all this, though, and I appreciate your brave all the gusts to share it with us.

Joan, I just read "Why Maggie Wears a Babushka" and it was delightful. I wondered about her history and it was all there. Nice doggie!

Wow, the weather looks pretty wild there! I was jealous when I saw your first photos of the snow. Since then we've had about 15cm :-)

It's been terribly windy and snowy around here the last few days too. Just trying to get the storm doors open to let the dogs out is a workout in itself. Hope the weather improves for you soon!

I am feeling pretty chilly by then.

Oh yeah, that reminds me of New York as well! :-D

Ann said...

Wow that's some wind. Looks like the kind that just cuts right through you. I got a chill just watching

I do envy you your seasons :) Hope you're enjoying the season!

betchai said...

wow, those are very strong winds, Sharkbytes, glad you are safe

You picked a great time to get video! There is no way a photo could have captured this like the video did. Your videos from these past two days have both turned out great.

Just one word - Brrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!

Carmen- I really need to get out every day or I get both ugly and stiff! But I'm glad you enjoy it. Hey- thanks for reading "Why Maggie Wears a Babushka." That was a newspaper column from 2007. It took me a long time to remember where I had posted it online- in that newsletter I published before I started blogging.

John- We are currently enjoying some very fine snow! Do you keep the snow all winter? I thought the UK was pretty mild. Although I'm sure it's not all the same.

Leigh- Thanks for visiting. Where are you located?

rainfield- I think I would be too hot too often where you are!

Dennis- o yeah... very similar. I grew up in the Finger Lakes

Ann- I was glad enough to get down behind the ridge very soon. How are you doing?

Ivy- I enjoy the seasons very much! I'm not likely to become what we call a "snow bird"- one who goes south for the winter.

betchai- Well, 25 mph looks nasty, but we don't get too much damage unless it hits 30-35 mph. The snow makes it sting more on the skin.

Ratty- thank you! The wind day one would have been better if the batteries had been charged when I first went out. The snow was lifting off the pines across the road in huge puffs, but it was mostly done when I got back with fresh batteries. I got one little one if you hunt for it in the video.

Karen- yesssssssss.

The snow doesn't usually last long this far south (Lincolnshire). This time it lasted for about 2 weeks. I received a new camera for Christmas, but unfortunately the best of the snow had already gone :-(

Sharkbytes said...

John- Two weeks of snow only! Wow... that hardly counts!
