Lousy Smarch weather

Despite my previous complaint about how well we handle the snow, I completely understand why it makes little sense to spend millions on preparing infrastructure for a snowstorm that generally occurs about once every few years.

I do enjoy them though, because it provides photographic opportunities that don’t happen everyday, so I can’t complain too much. It also meant I got to work from home for a few days, so I took the opportunity of not being tied to a building with fixed opening hours and went out for a few walks over the course of the few days (and obviously made up the time afterwards).

These photos were taken over the course of a few days during Storm Emma, The Beast from the East, or Snowmageddon; depending on what you want to call it!

A redwing decided to pay our house a visit.
(Is it just me, or are there suddenly a lot more birds as soon as it snows?)

I’ve never seen Park Place this empty at 8pm!

If you want a summary of these last few days in one photo, then this is it!




Here are the photos that didn’t make it into the main post…
