I didn’t expect that in February!
I sat in the kitchen yesterday evening when I suddenly heard a kind of roar, something I at first couldn’t figure out what it was. It was a really heavy shower hitting the north side of my cottage. It went on for a while and during that time another sound could be heard, something that sounded much like what I guess a jet plane would sound like if it flew just above Your home. I have to admit that thunder was the last thing I thought we would have in the middle of February 🙂
It didn’t go on for long but a work friend of mine saw the lightning too. After that it started to snow rather intensely and I didn’t think it would stay for long since it was rather warm outside. It was like walking on dry corn flakes this morning because it had been raining some more after that and then the temperature dropped. But beneath this crusty layer the ground still was wet so the roads were a bit slippery this morning. We still have some left on the ground even though the temperature has been way above 0C (32F) all day.
But I think the last of this snow will melt away this weekend because a rather nasty storm will, according to predictions and we know how much we can trust those :-), arrive tomorrow and stay all weekend. Lots of rain and warm temperatures. Well warm for this time of year anyway 🙂 I’m not sure if we need more water though, we have plenty as it is but nothing compared to how it is in England right now. Floodings everywhere and more rain is on the way to them.
But I don’t mind some bad weather as long as it isn’t snow. I’ll just hibernate here at home with my books and dvd’s. I still have some episodes of Big Banf Theory I haven’t seen and lots of films. Too bad my dogs most likely will force me out no matter what weather we’re having 🙂
It’s time to make that pot of tea and a few sandwiches too I guess. I haven’t eaten since 5am and now it’s 4:41 pm so I’m starting to feel a bit hungry 🙂 I have no idea if there’s anything worth watching on tv and perhaps I shouldn’t check but instead go directly to my books 🙂
Have a great day!
