The old folks are saying it has not been this bad since the legendary winter of 1947, so I am expecting to talk about this winter well into my dotage.
For us this is a time of rare beauty; we even caught some diamond dust clouds last night! It's also a time of growing inconvenience as side roads and pavements are covered in thick ice, schools are closed for days at a time, and the Lincoln Christmas Market is cancelled for the first time in 28 years; a major event that should have brought 150,000 people (and their purses) into the city.
But let's go back to the beauty. Here are some photographs taken this weekend:
|OK, they cheated and knelt down... but still|
|This is what 18 inches looks like!|
|Nice day for a picnic|
|Deep and Crisp and Even, don't you think?|
|The best igloo in the World - EVA!|
