A Snowy Day

Yesterday, after a cold and very grey month, the sun came out and finally melted all the snow from our solar panels.  We have not been generating much electricity this month because of the snow and ice on the panels.  So it was  good to see the meter going backwards again!  But, of course, today, it is snowing.  Our panel are again covered.  Sigh…if it stays snow (as opposed to ice) and is not too cold, it may melt quickly.  Let’s hope so!

It is quite lovely though.

IMG_3561Merlin knew just where to go. “Ahhh….”

IMG_3543Fergus is wondering if he will get his walk….but not losing any sleep over it.

It is a lazy morning at Brookwood Shire.  The girls are out in Cluckingham Palace because it is not too cold…but they are boycotting their run.

There will be shoveling to do…paths to clear…but there will be time for that when the snow stops.  So how will I spend the day?

Stay warm everyone!

    This last storm was very pretty!! But not fun on top of all the ice from the rain!

    Got a HUGE storm coming in Monday night, they say. No accumulations, just “heavy”. Temps to drop down too. Spending next couple days getting ready for power out… Chains on tractor tires, gas in cans and vehicles, milk run done, and plenty of wood inside.
