Watching nature take its course, from the top of a hill in northern England

Snow Line


I’ve been over in Chesterfield today, it snowed whilst I was gone

Snow sign of floods-2

I came home to mean and moody clouds (no filters on theses images, what you see is what I got) I took a little diversion to look at the view (fortunately I didn’t have to wait here for a bus, it were fleain’ *)

This is Mam Nick, above the Edale Valley I’ve been here in pleasanter conditions

there was a very distinct snow line

Across the rising hills

Snowline 1-2

But nothing like the snow poor old Scotland and Ireland have had  in the last 24 hours and certainly not weather to put the library bus off its stride

But there was a need to wrap up warm

*it were fleein, roughly translates to ‘it was very cold today’

Watching the rhythm of rural life, from the top of a hill in northern England. Having spent most of my life avoiding writing, I now need to do it! I am no domestic goddess, but if I were expecting visitors to my home, I would whisk round with the duster and plump up the cushions and generally make the place look presentable. I hope that by putting my words where others may see them it will encourage me to ‘tidy up and push the Hoover around’ my writing. On the other hand I may just be adding to the compost heap. Only time will tell! Pull up a chair, sit yourself down, I’ll put the kettle on.

  2. hi mrs uhdd – arh that pic of the black pony – very cute, we had a bit of sleet/rain tonight in rowarth – mr george is still tucked up in two rugs – arh. see ya soon, 🙂 sara.

  3. Will this winter never end?

  4. can’t believe it’s Easter and the snow is back, none down in south wilts though, just a bog at the moment with all this rain.

  5. That pony has got to be called Bess
    The post is falling over on the bend in the road
    Ive fond memories of that stile
    The path heading off under the bus stop I know so well.

    These are good photos and I can relate to this area so much. I have explored it for years.
    Thankyou Uphill

    The mobile library is a godsend to people in remote areas.

  6. It sure looks rather bleak and cold considering the time of year! Winter just doesn’t want to go away this year.
    Happy Easter! xx

  7. Thanks for the weather report as I am coming up to your part of the world on Easter monday and tuesday, walking up jacobs ladder and around Kinder Scout from Edale.

    I’ll remember the thermals..


  8. Yep, we got some too. A white Christmas is one thing – I rather enjoyed that. It’s tradition. A white Easter? You’re having a giraffe!

    Thick socks and wellie boots back on for the journey to work, and off I (very grumpily) went.

  9. Brr! That Mam Nick photo says it all, doesn’t it? And the long-suffering pony.

    Over here we’ve been astonished by practically summery weather. Perhaps it’s the summer we didn’t get last year, arrived at last. In any case, it is April Fool’s Day, and it wouldn’t surprise me a bit if Mama Nature pulled a stunt like this. I am grimly prepared for all possibilities. Today I plan to wear my bathing suit and snowpants to the beach.

  10. Hate to say this again ‘ but dykes and ditches’.

    I do recall and Easter, (either 78 or 79) where we had a five foot snowstorm and we had to dig our way out of the small village my Mother lived in.

    • A townie colleague was very disparaging about the the ‘dykes and ditches’ tale. I shall seek him out and show him the error of his ways!
      In Buxton a county cricket match was once snowed off in June

  11. At least the colourful eggs the Easter Bunny leaves will be easily visible against the white background! ~ trying to find something positive to your snow at Easter, but really it’s just not right, is it? We have blustery weather here with wind warnings, but no snow, so I will now be thankful. Hope you all have a cosy Easter around the fireplace 🙂
