Ooh, not nice Rosie, I like the cat though.  BTW, I edited your post simply to shorten the link to your blog.

We've had cloud/sun but the clouds went very dark before lighting up time.  It doesn't smell like snow yet.  Are you warm enough Danuta?  I turned my heating up to 17C and am tucked up in bed with a duvet and thick fleece blanket over me and a hottie by my side so I am fine.wink

I'll try that again!

Gorgeous little cat, Rosie - doncha just love 'em?

Danuta, like us, you're still free of snow? Lovely crisp day today, blue sky and sunshine, quite enjoyed the walk home from school.

Kaye, very brave to hang out towels, but at least they're now all clean - before any big snowfall!

TA, you won't smell the snow yet, just lemming drizzle cake smell big_laugh , I don't reckon you'll get any snow where you are, will you? I looked on the BBC weather, and it implied that down the east coast from Scotland and just to the top of Norfolk would catch the snowfall. Hope you're lucky and miss it.

MOS, a friend of mine lives on a narrowboat and, when the canal freezes she usually wakes up with the boat tilted at an angle.

I'll try that again!

Well dears, there was snow here in Cornwall this morning. There were cars going past my window with oh, lots, must have been... well.... half an inch at least on each car. surprised

I'm guessing higher ground up on the moors would have had more, but we're not talking feet of snow here. BUT as usual, Cornwall does not cope with white stuff. T's day care bus was an hour and a half late picking him up, because the traffic on a hill outside Lostwithiel was at a standstill. One of the staff had to travel in from Bodmin to Lanlivery, normally about 20 minutes, and it took her over an hour "because it was muddy." roll_eyes

The snow laid in the higher fields all day, and by the time I was shutting my ducks away the sky was dropping large wet frozen nuggets on me. Couldn't make up its mind whether to rain, hail or snow I guess.

Hope everyone is following TA's example and tucking themselves up nice and cosy.

Never assume anything - except an occasional air of intelligence.

We have about 4 inches, not much. We were supposed to be getting some heavy stuff this evening but it seems to have cleared away leaving it a bit chilly about -7C at the moment, bit different to the +5C yesterday. Monday and Tuesday are looking cold with highs or -14C expected. We shall see!roll_eyes

No snow fallen here, but clouds full of the stuff overhead from late morning onwards and a very,very cold penetrating wind.

Rosie- that is one gorgeous cat!

Cold, sunny and very beautiful here this morning as the snow did not melt as I thought it might - but lots of ice to break on water buckets and I had to take the boys to school as the bus wasn't running.

 

The cat is called Foggy (the Moggy) - he has a sisiter called Fumée and a friend called Firkin.  The French name their pets according to a given letter of the alphabet - F this year, G next ....... Our other cat is called Henry but he is not really aged; he came with us fromt the UK!
