Last night I was woken by thunder, lightning and torrential rain at 1am. This morning I have woken up to snow.
Snow showers continue to fall, we usually have one snowy episode here each winter but it looks very beautiful. More attractive than the constant rain that preceded this for days. This also means that the goats will have another day indoors. They were outside yesterday but there is a cold wind and they complain loudly at everything.
I shall wait to see whether the calendulas recover from this frosting of snow. Yesterday my hot water boiler decided to give up on me again. I shall fiddle with it when I feel up to the task. Until then it is kettle boiling time again. I shall light the wood burner early today.
