Winter Wonderland

The long expected Arctic blast is beginning to make itself felt here.  The temperature has plummeted but we have been having beautiful weather.

The ground has frozen nicely and we can walk over the top of the mud now instead of wading through it.  These footprints were made just the day before I took the photograph.

Our big rainwater tank is also now frozen enough to bear my weight.

It holds a lot of water and it needs to be pretty cold to do that.  It’s always one of the highlights of the winter if I can ‘skate’!

Yesterday we finally had some snow.  It may not be much compared to the rest of the country but we get so little of it down here that even a small amount is exciting.  I love snow!
