Snow more ice hanging around



So true to his word, the landlord sent three men and a lift to save us from death by ice. I couldn't go outside and take photos as baby boy and I were trapped inside by metres of snow on three sides, and falling ice and a lift on the fourth. I got a few shots though which I think illustrates very well my neighbours' snow disposal technique which I mentioned in my previous post.
There's still plenty of ice on the roof, but the overhang is gone (to join the great pile in the drive). We can now go in and out of the house without wearing safety helmets.

Who would have thought that snow could be such a problem, at least you are all safe and able to go outside and look for some spring flowers.

Lordy! To think that the UK comes to a complete standstill with just a hint of the stuff! Better not forget to do your hair ... now that there's no hardhat acting as camouflage ;-)

Good God. Picturesque it may be, but so dangerous. Are you missing simple Irish rain and wind?!

I grew up in Maine and we get a fair amount of snow, but I have NEVER seen one of those roof snow removal machines. Who knew?
