The Snow Came On Thursday at Teatime.
We had snow!
This arrived on Thursday at around teatime. It continued overnight with a little more on Friday but not much.
Now, Saturday, the temp has gone up to 2 degrees when before we were at about -9! It is melting but we have big drifts left because of the ferocious winds so they will take a day or two to go.
13 miles down the road in Aber you would not have thought two places could be so different weather wise. In the shops today the shelves were empty of lots of things because deliveries could not get through.
In other news Jon has been helping our elderly sheep-farming neighbour with lambing and brought a little visitor into the house....
It was one of twins and the mother had left it to fend for itself and got separated from the main flock. We are bottle feeding it for a couple of days in the house and then we will keep it in the shed and let it go outside before it is returned to the flock.The boys think it is very cute but totally understand that she is not a pet.
It is much better now....
and will be spending the night in the conservatory.
I love that Jon is able to get involved by helping our neighbour during lambing and that we helped prevent this little one from perishing; part of us living our dream here in Wales.
Bye for now.
