Sunny morning

Whilst a large part of the country is struggling with snow and icy conditions, here on the South West coast we have escaped the worst of the conditions (at least for now) - up on Exmoor, a few miles from here, they have had snow, but then that is to be expected with it being higher and above sea level.

I have just taken this photo, at 9.38am, from a suitable vantage point looking across to the Atlantic and we have it clear and sunny and -2 degrees, (according to the temperature reading from the car), brrrrr.



have a good weekend everyone!

  1. Beautiful view, Ann! I think you live in the only part of Europe that is not covered in snow and ice. Lucky you! But the sun is shining and the air is clear.

  5. Brrr is right! Brr, but beautiful! (Should I add that we’ve been averaging in the 80’s lately? Or would that be cruel? LOL And if it makes you feel any better I’m being punished for rubbing it in, tonight’s low is going to be 39. That is FREEZING for us! LOL)

    1. Hi Balaji, Yes, I thought this post would surprise people, as I'm sure the world news makes it sound as though the whole of the UK is covered in snow!

    1. Hi Pat, Hope the snow doesn't last too long for you. I must say I do like to see snow falling, but after about 5 minutes of being on the ground I am over that initial 'ah isn't this pretty'!!

    Actually we have had a very mild winter, but this w/e it dropped to -12C with high winds and snow. I knew it would happen sooner or later.

    1. OMG! -12C, brrrr, how do you cope with that, still I guess it's being used to it, we are far too soft here! Glad your trip is getting organised, yay. As for the word verification: I had one the other day that was 'ballymog' (decided it must be a town full of cats in Ireland!)lol.
