Last night the snow began to fall again.
This morning at 10am the snow began falling again and did not stop.
We woke up at 5.30 am to the sound of Callisto taking her coal delivery, this did not bother either of us because we were awake anyway, so I got up and put the kettle on, stoked up both the fires and climbed back into bed to enjoy my nice hot cuppa. Marmite must have been feeling a bit chilly because she also climbed beneath the duvet for a warm.
When I took Paddy out for his walk, a Kestrel was sat in the tree looking rather chilly and forlorn. Paddy enjoyed running through the snow.
The snow got steadily heavier and heavier, so Mark on Callisto made the decision to stay put in the wharf, so we pulled our boat over to the other side of the wharf where the water tap is, to allow Mark to moor alongside us. Although Mark has a large run, there is no point trying to move in this weather, not just because of the ice, but for his own safety out there alone on the cut.
It is now 1.30pm and we have a good two inches of snow and still more falling. The schools are shut and the roads are passable but with care. I am glad I got all the coal in yesterday, because I do not fancy climbing on the gunwales to get in the hold with things the way they are at the moment.
Keith and I are enjoying our extended stay at Welford Wharf, and I will take more snowy photographs I am sure.
