Once again it has been a horrendous week for weather, we’ve had an inkling of spring, followed closely by torrential rain, gale force wind and snow. So at the moment the girls seem to be living in their snowsuits, boots, hats and gloves.
My shoulder has been feeling much better so we’ve been venturing further than the garden. It started to snow again and they were desperate to get out into it, so we went for a big walk down the lanes. The snow wasn’t lying, but it was being driven hard at us by the wind. I didn’t realise until we got away from the shelter of the house, just how cold it was.
I opened the five bar gate and off we set. As we rounded the corner my heart sank a little, the whole lane of course was just full of puddles, great muddy puddles. A magnet to my girls, they took off at a rate of knots, before I had time to even speak and that was it, they charged through them, they splashed through them, they fell into them. All in driving snow and freezing wind.
As I write-up this post, we are on a red weather warning for up to 30cms of snow, the wind is howling and the snowsuits are washed, dried and ready if the Met Office are right!
*Update – I’m linking a little later than normal, because for once the Met Office were spot on. We have had gale force wind and horrendous snow, so I have been without power, phone or internet for about 18 hours
I am linking up again with the brilliant Country Kids and Fiona, who encourages us all to really enjoy the outdoors. Why not pop over and have a read and maybe join in, it is a fun link.
