Custard and crinolines

It's been fairly snowy and cold since Christmas. Quite useful when you need to cool a custard down quickly to make ice cream:

It might have cooled faster without the lid, but certain other members of the family were also outside this morning...

The snow had drifted up in interesting shapes on rooftops, which have since been further sculpted by the wind. The snow on top of the grain silo this afternoon made me think of a ruffled Victorian petticoat.
