Well winter really is in full swing up here in Yorkshire it would seem, as demonstrated by my walk home. It took me nearly 2 hours to do a walk that would normally take just under 1 hour (in case you're wondering why I walked, it's because the entire bus service across the city was cancelled). My husband is still stranded up in Huntington with his parents. Hoping he gets home tonight. Anyway, I thought I'd share some of the pictures that I took on my mobile whilst I walked home:
If you look in the middle of the river, you can see one of the many islands of ice that have formed. This is a fast flowing river, not just a sagnant canal and it's icing over :/
The above two photos make it look not too bad, but the bit between where the man is walking and the river had snow up to my knees when I trod in it.
Our road doesn't get gritted - this is how much snow cars are having to drive through to get into/out of our estate.
Hasn't turned out that well but this is about half as deep as the actual snow went!
What's it like where you are? Are you snowed in? Has life come to a stand still or are you longing for a piece of the snowy action?
