Well, we got more over night. Thankfully, not too much blew onto the driveway. The dog barely made it through the snow drift out back this morning, in order to do his business. (where's the cold, or freezing smileys??)


Here's a couple for you Con! :D

That's not the high street Del just either side of one of the Rail stations, and this view is from just above the other Rail station called the High station. :mrgreen:

Snowing here, hopefully it's just a sprinkle.

These are outdoor LED lights. The smaller ones are 36" high; the larger one is 42" high. I'm calling this one Shackleton's Light Expedition.

What it looks like after you (er, your children) shovel out 30" of snow.

Good luck with that lot. I loved the cold when I lived out there but could do without the several feet of snow.

Hope it clears up soon

Lovely pictures.

Apologies if this has been posted before. This is definitely something I'd like to try.

Balloons filled with coloured water & left out to freeze, then cut the balloon off the ice ball.

I'd fill my yard up with them.
