    Overcast and freezing cold.

    Roads and pavements are like ice rinks this morning.

    Not a cloud to be seen and a sharp frost. Still hope of getting some more winter wheat sown.

    Ditto. I don't even have an iron. My aversion to it is mostly down to my mother. She ironed everything (even things like my lovely printed t-shirt despite being warned not to, took her an age to get the transfer off the ironing board surface and ruined the shirt!) and virtually every evening after dinner the rest of us would sit down to watch telly and she would be there bent over the ironing board and moaning about how it was alright for the rest of us but she had all the ironing to do. There are certain 70's shows I can't watch without hearing her grumbling in the background

    It is actually quite warm in the sun, as long as there’s no wind.

    Frost this morning, but blue sky and sun. Keeping fingers crossed for tonight.

    I have had enough snow. I am tired of shovelling it.
    My deck. I cleaned it off once already.

    Even the poor squirrel has to tunnel under the snow to get the sunflower seed my wife put out for it.

    Another foot and a half of snow fell last night with more to come.
    There is a roof pitch below the window in the picture. It has 3 feet of snow on it.

    The municipality keeps a few key routes in town plowed in case an emergency vehicle was needed.
    I live on one of those routes so my street is nicely plowed and I can get to the stores if I need to.
    I haven't had to go as I keep the house well stocked.

    Seven and a half for me at the moment (official) but seems a little longer before colour goes.

    Hint of frost this morning I'm told, most signs had gone by the time I surfaced. Bright sun low down at this time of year makes driving a bit hazardous, the fold down "sun visors" need to be wider and deeper; think I'll try and cut a piece of card to go behind the seebackroscope and cover the upper middle of the screen between the visors, could also do with something for the front side windows. One road I drove along today has trees with frequent gaps which give an annoying series of dazzling flashes as you pass.
