More snow today, the boys wanted me to photograph their ‘snofa’, as the name might suggest a sofa like construction made of snow; as it was snowing horizontally at the time I declined to get the camera out. Spud thought it a wonderful thing, he leapt all over it and then had a pee on it, so don’t sit on the yellow snow. Tom, Joe and Tom’s friend were still down the field well after dark, continuing their constructions; I’ve not seen what exactly they’ve made, but when a snow laden Joe appeared in the kitchen he asked, ‘Do you mind that it’s got a tunnel?’ and ‘It’s OK, we’ve added an air vent’ he added as an afterthought. I think a bit of an inspection might be in order in the morning as I’ve seen the size of the snowballs they were rolling earlier in the afternoon, they must weigh nearly as much as a silage bale. One got up such a turn of speed, I feared it was going to take out the drystone wall at the bottom of the field.
Some photos from last Saturday, when we had just a dusting of snow
The smoke in the image below, is from the processing plant at one of the limestone quarries, Tunstead quarry I think.
