Well, we had snow overnight again and it is still snowing out here in Wiltshire. It’s pretty to look at, but it’s tough to get around. The main roads are fine, but out where we live, some of the roads are kind of piled up. The local authorities are running out of grit/salt so they aren’t able to treat many of the roads. So there is a scramble going on. I learned something new about this whole grit/salt business from the news the other day that I didn’t know. Apparently they put molasses in some of the grit/salt here to help it grip better. Who knew :-)
We keep getting lots of snow each night. It’s been back and forth. It revved up again overnight and we woke up to more snow this morning. Right now it’s really coming down again. It looks like little white feathers falling out of the sky.
Here’s a photo I took from the upstairs window earlier, before it started snowing hard again. I went outside to check things out. Gotta see what's going on in "the shire" ;-) I had been beaten to making tracks in the snow though. Brit Boy had beaten me to it earlier when he left for work and then I met the lady who hands out the newspaper supplement. So there was lots of traffic down our path. I am still thinking about going out to make a snow angel later. We shall see :-) I think I’ll wait for Brit Boy and we can make a matching set.
We were due to have our garbage pickup today, but I don’t think they will be making it down our street today. We have a hilly, winding, narrow street that’s getting trickier to drive down by the minute, so it’s probably best that they don’t try it today. We’ll be fine though…our wheelie bin is only about half full.
So the word for this week in wintry Wiltshire is definitely….SNOW! :-) Have a great weekend!
