Snow..snow and more snow

Wow have we got snow....but hey it's winter and I am absolutely fed up of the "SEVERE WEATHER" warnings on the news....this is what winters should be and then perhaps we would get a decent summer.
It has been blowing a blizzard here since Friday night and this is what we woke up to this morning.....

And the chances of getting the car out of the driveway...well let's say we have more chance of winning the old lottery....so it was shank's pony this morning for our morning walk...and it was hard going through the deep snow but this is what I love about winter.......the beauty of nature.

"The Budster" in scavenge mode...he's obviously found something interesting to eat...even the deep snow doesn't deter this canine hoover from sussing out anything to munch on.
I am a little jealous of all the folks who will be heading to the ski slopes this weekend and if not for this blasted decorating malarkey.....I might have been tempted to join them for some slipping and sliding fun.
And a BIG TOOT....we have a new challenge blog in town ...... "The Pink Elephant" and meet Ella their mascot
IS SHE CUTE OR WHAT!!!
and they have the most fabulous Design Team....including my lovely talented Funky Hand Team Mate Carol.... well that means we are going to be in for some fabulous inspiration and it all kicks off today....so pop on over and say hello and join in their very first challenge.
Catch up with you all tomorrow with hopefully a challenge card or two......Hugs Kath xxxxxx

  5. I'm loving this snow, Graham has been making some great snow men in the garden. I agree about the decent winter/decent summer theory. The evening news has turned into a comedy show for me lol
    especially was tickled by the Dartmoor is looking like the Alps comment the other day on BBC News

  6. What a gorgeous scene! Wish we had some here! The sun is shining here which is great but it's freezing cold. No doubt we'll get some snow during the week when you can't enjoy it. Hugs, Lainy xxx

  16. It looks beautiful! We had that amount last week...and still have quite a bit left!! It started snowing earlier but has stopped again now.
    It's been great walking about and talking to people instead of dashing everywhere in the car! :)

  18. OMG Kath that's what I call SNOW!!! Blimey it looks beautiful but I don't envy you having to plod through that honey... mind you the budster looks like he's enjoying it...lol
    I remember staying in Scotland for New Year a few years back and the snow was so bad I couldn't move the car for 3 days... a good excuse to drink more than my usual half pint eh :D
