On The Farm in January

Yesterday the meteorologists forecast snow and wind. The media got over excited and our local news was filled with photos of gritting lorries and dire warnings of ice and tidal surges.

In the evening we had a light covering of snow.

Not enough to cause disruption but enough to make the farm look pretty  with snow dusted fields and patterned ice filling the puddles as I walked around the farm this morning.

Today is grey and overcast with flurries of snow and everyone wants to find a job inside to escape the icy north west wind. I may just be able to keep them employed for a while.

It’s an ill wind that blows nobody any good.
