No chance!!!  The snow is back with a real vengeance.  All the schools are closed and we are stuck again.  And yes, that darned drive is going to need shovelling out AGAIN.  And the paths. 
And the studio roof needs clearing off. 

Even DS says he’s fed up now!

I’m just about to grab a coffee and then head out and feed the rabbits…. its a real blizzard out there and I feel so sorry for them, but have no where else to put them.

…….OK, rabbits are fed, re-strawed and defrosted and the bird feeder is full.

Ian got up and cleared some snow off the studio roof.  I cleared the paths for the FIFTH time.

DS and I went for a walk – this is the main road and our snowy lane.  Ian managed to get out and went for some more animal supplies and more fresh vegetables. 

He was appalled to see how bare the shelves were in the shops… no milk, veg or bread.  Deliveries hadn’t got through (or up the hill, whichever way you go Wooler is uphill).  Not so good.  This weather is supposed to get worse tonight and last all week at least.

We saw these poor little chicks – they were racing inside with their mum who was sensibly taking them to keep warm in the straw by the cattle.

DS and I spent an hour drawing – DS colouring in a dragon and me designing Goddesses.

If you go to the Photo a Day blog you can see another snowy picture.

    I'm sure it will get worse before it gets better, by the sounds of it most of the country is in the grips of this cold spell. Do I see green on the shed? I must have missed a post about that.
