This shows where we walk and meet the ravens
The yellow and pink squiggly lines are two walks we take. The yellow one is the one we usually do. The squigglyness indicates how Madame visits her several important sniffing check-points!
We stop several times to feed the ravens, and you can see where they come from.

Saturday Nov 27th, 2010

It snowed a lot yesterday afternoon, and with the clear sky overnight, everything is frozen over. Pavements and roads are blank ice.
It is just as last year at Christmas.
So we stayed indoors, hoping for a bit of thawing.

Sorry, ravens.

"Wintry weather caused widespread problems on Friday, with schools closed, flights disrupted and a 26-mile tailback on the M4 in south Wales.
The UK has seen the earliest widespread snowfall for 17 years and forecasters say it could last for two weeks.
One of the coldest place overnight on Friday was Trawscoed, in west Wales, where -10.2C (14F) was recorded."

Hi there Dear {{Yma}} - it's realwest again. My goodness, so much snow, so early?! I'm very glad you decided to stay home; I'm sure the Ravens will be ok and I'd have worried about you and Miss Sophie (even if she does wear her fur coat all the time!!).
We in N.C. are experiencing VERY COLD weather, went down to 30 degrees Fahrenheit, of course! last night and is going down to 27 degrees tonight. Brrrr. Anyway, I do hope you are doing ok and will have a chance to get out and about with Miss Sophie visiting the Town Ravens again soon!!

Hiya, {rw}!

Yes - winter has come early, and the icy roads were very scary.
I'm now going out with socks over my boots again - it works well when there is icy snow around, like this morning.

Being cold is not nice - and I'm sorry that you also have these low temperatures. Do keep warm - but as you can see from today's post - Miss Sophie enjoyed herself thoroughly!
