Looks pretty wintry, doesn't it? It was cold and snowy over the weekend, with temperatures struggling to get above -8°C/17°F, but the cold spell didn't last long. It's above freezing again today and I don't think this snow is going to hang around. It's already gone from the road in front of our house.
The ice over the stream is usually deep and unbreakable by this time of year, but it's not very thick at all at the moment - certainly not strong enough to bear my weight:
Such a peculiar winter...
