Christmas snow

I can't remember the last time we had snow over Christmas, and it was serious snow too. We have had light smatterings over the years but nothing this heavy.
Every where looked so pretty. Our barren and rather dull garden, was transformed into a winter wonderland.
Granted it is a bind trying to get about, but still I like it.
I found the birds very amusing too. Our little feathered friends are brighter than we realise.
The bird bath was frozen solid so they had no water to drink, but that didn't bother them. They tucked into the food I put out, and washed it down with a mouthful of snow, bright or what?
It lasted nearly two weeks, but now it's gone washed away by the rain.
At least now we can get around without skidding all over the road, I suppose that's a positive.
Maybe it will return, who knows? it's cold enough. At least I have my photos to remind me.
Due to the white stuff, Christmas 2009 will not be easily forgotten. Not least for the traffic chaos it caused.
Why does Britain come to a standstill when a little snow falls ? Ah well, at least we give the country's used to heavy snow fall a good laugh.
