The Beast From The East Is Here

It has been forecast for a while, but now the Beast has final showed up.  Started off as sleet, but very quickly progressed to be blizzard conditions.  It has stopped snowing for a while, but if it is to be believed, we have 'Storm Emma' on it's way.  If the storm's high winds and rain turn into blizzard conditions, then we are screwed.  The UK isn't good in regards to dealing with snow as it is - doubly so in Cornwall, when our last batch of thinnish snow was in 2010.  I have stocked up on stew making provisions and also porridge oats.  Bingley (aka Junior Cat, who progressed to Solitary Family Cat last year) is unimpressed and mewed pitfully until Prodigal 2 went to rescue him.  Suffice to say that the back door will be barricaded and the litter tray reintroduced.  Hey ho.

snow...what snow, no snow up here around Merseyside, some whispers of snow but apart from that nothing. I will let you know ifvanything changes over night.

It's really hit Cornwall hard, which is unusual. Several inches here, mostly because of the wind.

Brr, too cold by half. Poor Bingley. How he suffers!

Yeah, he suffers - he is suffering an open fire right now :-D

That's how I like to suffer, too.

Nice snow pictures! Aw - what a sweet little robin! When it snows there does everything stop and everyone stay home? Farther south from here that is what happens. Or else everyone is skidding all over and running off the road cause they don't know how to drive in snow.

Everything has ground to a halt here - snow is not too bad at the moment and the main roads are clear. We did lag the pipes and ran the taps, but we awoke this morning to find we don't have running water. The novelty is wearing off now.
