Winter Morning

This is what the sunrise looked like when I arrived at work after the snow one morning

It looked very cold even the sun looked muted

Half an hour later the weather looked a lot nicer though not much warmer

Snowy Walk

After the Beast had struck I decided to go for a walk around the village to see how much snow we had. There did not appear to be much around being as most of it was blown about

 Church road going over Bunk Arch

The school kids were on a snow day

Bunk Arch is a bridge that goes over an old branch railway now a preserved line. The locals call it the bunk line hence the name of the bridge
 Last Wordless Wednesday I did showed some snowdrops. They look a little sorry now 

Along with the rest of the churchyard 

Not many people had been up here
 Agatha Christy's grave looked very lonely in the snow

I took some time to go to the Elms bridge

To get a photo of the station which you may be able to make out through the Gantry's. Last time I took one from this place in similar conditions you could see it clearly
 I headed back through some biting cold wind 

Past my old school now a retirement home
then past the village green to home, glad to be out of the cold. Next week I will show what it was like in Wales when I went down after the second winter storm we had

The Beast is here

A weather warning is in place telling us of a weather front coming our way bringing cold weather. cold I mean by up tless than zero deg C. It has been given a name of the Beast from the East or the Siberian Express.
Well the weather has been cold overight we are seeing tempertures of less -5c and during the day it can be +3c  but with the wind chill it feels colder. this evening I popped down the village and when I left the house I noticed the odd bit of snow by the time I reached the centre this is what I encountered

 Snow was falling

 Covering the pavement

 But on the way back it had stopped.

Come morning Batman did not look amused
