Freeze-Thaw-Freeze-Thaw - try saying that ten times!
It's been a cycle of weather confusion around here. The first two and a half weeks of January were at truly brutal temperatures
- then we were treated to a tease of spring with a week above freezing, and beautiful skies.
The winds picked up and "moved" the snow around. Cleared footpaths became snow-drift obstacle courses once again. One step, two steps, sink up to your knees.
One step, two step, and slide.
I call it my winter waltz.
Blue skies have done their best - and a little warmth on your back feels like a slice of heaven in January.
Then the clouds blow in once again and by Saturday night more snow arrived.
The winds have been so strong, they stripped the surface of the ravine of all it's snowy blanket, revealing one thing I do dislike about winter here - brown grass. I think I'd rather it was covered in snow!
And today, we are above freezing again - the snow will all melt, we'll all come out of hibernation - and my only advice really?
Don't wash your car 'cos it ain't worth it!
