First Snow


We had our first snow of the winter yesterday here in South Oxfordshire. (hey, isn’t winter supposed to be over?!) This is the view that greeted us out the front window.

There was about 2 inches – it didn’t stick to the roads except for a layer as slush as the ground is just too warm already. We took a walk out down the lane and up to and arround the next village. Our walk took us across a field that serves as the sledding hill for our village and the next. After we got home we stayed in the rest of the day and had a fire. All morning we saw families walking down our lane with sleds – heading towards the hill. They had to be quick – the snow was almost all gone by noon.

  1. Guess I better rethink what clothes I bring. Hope we get to meet Wendy when we are there.

  2. Darn, I missed the snow because I was out in sunny (???) Seattle!
