More Snow

The sky dropped another four inches of snow (to add to the three inches or so still on the ground) on Thursday afternoon and evening, over Wykeham Forest. About half of that landed on the dogs and me during our evening walk.

Wykeham Forest - Elven Wood (SE948864)

Both the dogs love the snow and its great to see them running and jumping about in it, scrabbling and digging, and pouncing on imaginary creatures underneath the blanket of white. When out in the dark, Rafe leaps five foot to catch snowflakes in the torch beam.

Today the snow has that glassy look, as if its ready to slump back into its liquid form without too much of a fight. Its definitely milder today, but there's still quite a lot of snow about, so it'll take a while to disappear.
