Snowy walk today
OH and I had a walk up to the junction today, just to see how bad the roads were. They're bad. No chance of getting out at all as the snow has been compressed to an ice-slick like glass. I was hoping that we might creep out to Llandeilo with Honey to get her eye checked, but no chance.
As you can see, quite an appreciable snow fall yesterday and overnight too. I was glad to be wearing my walking boots . . . wellies might keep your feet dry, but not WARM! Our car wouldn't make it up this hill . . .
This is the more major lane to the A40 - impassible for us in our car, as it's a complete ice-slick.
The photogenic spot again.
The lane home, and a pretty scene - for walkers.
Down by the river, all was still, held in winter's thrall. The footprints below give you some idea of the depth of snow - probably 8" or 9" overall.
Blue snow in our paddock!
