Snowed in of Chipping Norton

Snowed in of Chipping Norton

This was dawn this morning. There are hills behind the house, now invisible. Good thing I had some sort of run yesterday. Getting to the dentist in Thame tomorrow might be a problem. Hope the rest of you are snug and safe and well and not risking icy conditions.

Morning FlickM3 ! Looks beautiful from here! Hope everything goes well for your dental visit tomorrow. We have had three days of snow here in County Antrim with more forecast for later today. I went out yesterday on a quiet road for W8R3 but found the conditions too bad so had to turn back. Was getting a few stares too from people walking their dogs, so I was giving them a cheery wave, just to prove I’m not really mad! Not worth risking injury, even though the snow was really lovely to run in, crisp and deep. It’s been a few years since we had enough snow to enjoy a snowball fight!

I take my hat off to you for even attempting it! By the time we got home from walking the dogs, my knees were aching, which they never do when I run. I really hope it clears soon for all if us, lovely though it is. Once it gets compacted, walking is a nightmare. Time to dig my crampons out x

It is a very beautiful place, Sarakc , as you already know, I’m sure! But we had temperatures of minus five last night and the snow is still lingering making it very treacherous underfoot. Will be glad to see the back of it now. Hope your sister is coping all right. If you’re in a town or city the pavements are gritted, but I live in a small village on the shores of Belfast Lough where we are slipping and sliding on the ice so have to walk on the edge of the road sometimes, bringing with it its own dangers! Will be glad to get out running again!

I hope the snow and ice go away soon so you can get out running again!!

My sister lives out in the country not far from Antrim town! On top of a hill!! They have trouble getting up lane in snow! I live by the sea not far from Edinburgh now and it’s beautiful there too! No snow here (touch wood!!) It’s icy but I’ve been fine on gritted pavements!! 😀

Oh my lord, you've had a fair bit. We woke up to the same in South Wales thus morning. Though I didn't expect it to be as much as we've had, as we don't get it bad here.

Chippy being high on the /cotswolds, we do tend to cop it if it's around, but i think most places are getting it. I enjoy it for a day then want it to thaw :) No traffic on the roads here.

Beautiful view though :)

Usually you can see the Cotswolds from the back of the house, but they had vanished by dawn this morning when I took this.
