Queensbury Snow, here we go again !

               Down it came again, heavy showers all day
  Eck, an empty car park, several customers blobbed today.

    Main road covering
   Snowflakes the size of  half crowns, bet you don,t remember them!
                                              Job stopped
                                 Deserted village cross roads
            Meanwhile, back at the ranch.
                            Whiteout, Foxhill Park
          Even the Blackbird looks naffed off.
    Looks like the bottom Woody was first to the grub.

A real Queensbury winters day today with heavy showers throughout but luckily the wind had dropped so no worry of drifting.
Steady falls through the night then constant heavy falls all day, some so heavy visibility was down to a few feet.
A few bright spells in between revealing small gulls frantically flying round looking for food whilst the local Woodpigeons patiently sat on their usual chimney pots waiting for the food to be put down.
Highlight of the day was a Grey Wagtail low over the garage last light >SW, probably one of the Black Dyke Mill birds. Which reminds me , when we were teenagers we used to wait in the High Street for the Black Dyke Mill birds, but not Grey Wagtails.
