Since they have done no places where the melting water can flow out from the road, small lakes are being made. A bit difficult to pass with crutches :-)
It might have been tha last really cold night this winter that we just have passed. Tomorrow lowpressures will start flying over our snow white fields and forests. But it might just be a short break with some warm winds before the next session with cold arctic winds starts again :-)
Here is the newly plowed road. Must have been difficult to plow since the snow now is so compressed that it reminds more of ice than snow.
I can´t open my garage doors. The meltwater from the snow on the garage roof has frozen in front of the doors so now it´s impossible to open them up :-) My car stands on that shiny ice too, so at the moment it´s impossible to get it up on the road again :-) I could put an old rug behind the front weels, that would give the grip needed, but than I have to do it every time I ned to use the car (and to be honest, I´m not that good in my leg to be able to do that at all right now :-) ). I do hope the comming lowpressures will melt away enough snow and ice so the water can continue down to the field benieth my garage.
Once upon a time there was a croft here, the last one before the bog. It must have been over 100 years ago and the only thing showing it has been a cottage here are the Lilacs in the bacground. They don´t grow wild here.
The forestowner has plowed up another road I can walk on now :-) It works as long as the nights are as cold as they are now, even if he plowed real well, there are places on that road that still has over 15cm (6 inches) of snow. Perhaps snow is the wrong word now, it´s so compressed that it really is more like fragile ice. When the sun reaches it I will sink down like Titanic did after hitting that iceberg :-) :-)
I have no idea what this big box contains. I didn´t even know that it stood there until the snow started to melt away :-)
Otherwise this day will be as calm and quiet as all other days here in the village. The sun is shining and I will most probably make a cup of tea or coffee and sit down outside on my kitchen stairs just enjoying life. Or perhaps get irritated over something. I´ve noticed that it´s far to easy to get irritated when one doesn´t have that much to do during the days :-) :-)
Have a great day now!
