    Snow in STORRINGTON!!!

    Hi Guys,

    Well, everyone else has been showing us their 'snow' photos so, since we've just had the heaviest snowfall for many years (about 3"), I see no reason why I should not do the same. These two were taken this morning about 150 yards from my house. My sincere apologies for the total lack of colour co-ordination but, as the temperature was just below freezing, I simply grabbed the warmest clothing that was closest to hand!!





    I just hope it has all gone before the long drive to Dumfries in two days time!!

    I love it.

    Just take your time on the drive if the snow is still there. Most of the snow accidents are are caused by those that feel they can still drive the speed limits.

    Great pics of the snow.

    That is a wonderful scene, and a very convincing "Hamish". Thanks for posting them, I hope it all clears for your drive to Dumfries.

    I like the second pose as well. Of course, I remember one thing from living in the northern US growning up..... Warm beats fashion any day!
    "A veteran, whether active duty, retired, national guard or reserve, is someone who, at one point in his life, wrote a blank check made payable to "The United States of America", for an amount of "up to and including my life." That is honor, and there are way too many people in this country who no longer understand it." anon

    Here's to Hamish

    Always a man comfortable in the elements! Only the master can "throw down" the ultimate Hamish in such a lovely scene.

    Well Done Ham!
