Mollydog in the snow.

Happy St David's Day!


Not a photo from 2018, because although the spring was warm up to this week and there were lots of daffs in bloom, the ICY BLAST has come and they are all lying around the place now limp and floppety and unhappy.    We have no snow, though the ground is hard as iron and if we do get any precipitation, it will certainly settle.

I have just updated a website with an announcement saying 'we are all working from home because of the snow in Devon'.   Devon and Cornwall are reallly not set up for snow.

The Cold

Pp has just got a big order in his Shop on the Borderlands from Finland. He's going to have to email Finland and say 'sorry, your order will be delayed, we have almost half an inch of snow'. I feel his customer is going to fall over laughing.

In other news, all the local Facebook groups are sharing BEWARE THE HILL warnings because apparently none of the roads were gritted, and I have just heard that art class tomorrow is cancelled because the heaters in the hall are terrible, which is probably good news, because about half the class are elderly and I would hate to see them all skidding down the icy hills and ending up in a heap in the Tamar.
