The Perfect Snow

On Saturday you wake up and find your house all covered in snow…

Sunday is sunny and bright and even warm as long as you’re dressed for it…

Then on Monday, just when you’re all getting sick of it, the rain starts…

And by Tuesday it’s as if it had never been.

I never thought I’d be grateful for rain, or indeed for a day as dreich and drear as Monday proved to be, but at least our roads are now more or less clear of ice and snow.

… at least till the next time.

    dreich and drear

    yes you are finally turning scotch.

    ecc – no thank you we have had what my great aunt would have called an elegant sufficiency
    John – ah, dreich is a word that needs greater currency, in my opinion

    I can’t believe it! Snow just pours down on you and the bejezus gets frozen out of practically everything for days and days, the stuff melts, and there’s green underneath it! Just incredible.

  6. disgruntled says:

    that’s the upside to all our rain. And if you think that is green, you should see it in the summer

  7. Flighty says:

    I don’t mind a day or two of snow. I don’t like it when it lingers as a grey slush or turns icy. xx

    What happy-looking sheep! And they even let you get close enough for a nice picture.

    We’ve had the same sort of weather here. Now it’s all melting, but there’s still some snow ice cream in the freezer.

  9. disgruntled says:

    flighty – I know what you mean, particularly when it gets all icy

    Kirsten – I think they were hoping I had some food for them.

    Snow ice cream?

    • Kirsten says:

      Yes, you put some cream in a big bowl, sweeten it, flavor it (cocoa, instant coffee, rum, vanilla, or whatever), and stir snow in until you like the taste and texture. Eat or freeze immediately. It’s nothing like the store-bought variety, but good.
