Beautiful but Bitterly Cold

This morning we woke up to a winter wonderland.  Yesterday afternoon the wind got up and brought with it snow.  By half past seven we were without electricity and after a couple of hours of candlelight the novelty wore off and it was off to bed with hot water bottles!  This house gets pretty cold with no central heating.
The best way to appreciate the view is from behind this glass!
The roads, even down the dale, have been treacherous however it doesn't stop motorists trying to drive to Kirkby Stephen via the moors.  Chris has had two cars to pull out with the tractor already!

  1. Wasn't it just one week ago that I mentioned our first real bitter cold and snow in Vermont? I wonder. If you get a couple of particularly warm for the season days in the next days then perhaps we are back on the same weather pattern.
