Sunday notes

The snow from last night left us with a covering of nearly 4 inches at 10 am; the sun, which shone brightly all day, managed to melt a lot of the snow left exposed to its rays. Still, there was a substantial covering in many places. Went for a walk in the woods during the afternoon, and found snow depths up to 6 inches in places. The noticeable thing was that the open heathlands held hardly any snow as that had melted under the sun. It is surprisingly warm when you're in a sheltered location, even more so behind glass. Many people had had the same idea to go out into the crisp air, and there were quite a few youngsters out sledding in the village. For reference: it's hilly round here.

It does look like a lovely place for a walk. Glad you enjoyed getting out today. Children always love the snow. I know that mine did. I think most of them still do too.
