With so much going on over Christmas and New Year we were fortunate that the family managed to get together for Christmas Dinner at our house. At one point we were worried about the snow but all was okay and we had a great day together. We thought, like many others that the splattering of snow we had would be the last of the bad weather, how wrong we were!
Fortunately we have a 4x4 and manage where we can, Jon does the driving because he has done off-roading in the past and enjoys the challenge, I on the other hand lack such confidence and am quite happy to be a passenger. I did have a road accident many years ago when travelling to school. I hit a patch of black ice on what is a notoriously sharp bend in the village and my car ended up through a fence in a field. Every time we have snow the same thing happens to many motorists, only yesterday we spotted a car in the same position. We went for a drive up to Danby Beacon, the highest spot on the North York Moors, it is only a short drive away.
The roads were barely visible and we returned home to keep warm and safe. We have had many garden visitors including some thrushes. I think they are mistlethrushes...any thoughts?
So back to normal now but more snow is forecast so we will be just keeping an eye on the sky. I am quite happy to stay at home!
