Snow (with modifications)
Snow is where I’ll go
How wonderful to have snow! These pictures were taken in Nonsuch Park.
This one was taken out the window.
Sleep cycle snow
It’s the day after my birthday and I woke up to check the results of an app I had loaded onto my phone to monitor my sleep cycle – just a bit of fun. I don’t know whether this chart is good or bad. I woke up feeling grotty, but that’s normal. There doesn’t seem to be much deep sleep happening, but is that good or bad? I’ll see how the following nights go.
We weren’t expecting snow! By the time I got out for a modest hike it was no longer snowing, and on the return leg the snow had disappeared.
Losing one’s way
With lots of Photoshopping I can knock off maybe 20 years, though my son’s first reaction was “That looks very odd!”. Well, son, that’s what I intended, so there!
Walking south and uphill there was still a fair amount of snow to be found on today’s shortish walk.
A couple of days ago I did a longer walk in the same area. Then, in much worse conditions, I managed to become quite disorientated. Today’s walk was to figure out how I’d managed to end up where I had – which I managed to do. When the conditions are poor and everything’s covered in snow, and when you’re not paying sufficient attention to your surroundings, it’s quite easy to lose track of one’s location – despite having, as I did, the Ordnance Survey map app and GPS on the phone! Just as well I was in North Surrey and not North Wales…
On a bitterly cold walk
Nearly but not quite..
The snow didn’t really got going but it’s always nice to see.
Even the snowman has to wear a Covid mask!
When the snow came a fortnight ago I took this picture using the telephoto lens of my rarely used DSLR camera. Heavy snow is forecast for this weekend so I’m looking forward to taking more of the same. (A day after posting this I spotted the mask on the snowman, hence the re-titled blog post!).
The day after the snow came
A day after the snow came the predicted thaw began to take effect. The crisp layer of snow had become crunchy snow or worse still mud so that a walk along the Hogsmill River was at times a quagmire. Collapsed and demolished snowmen were much in evidence in Nonsuch Park.
This is the scene out the window at around 7am this morning. Who could have guessed at how the rest of the day would develop….
