After a night of rising temperatures, we are now living in a sultry 6 degrees something and the snow is finally melting.
So we have the sheet ice to contend with.
Plus a Force 9 gale going on. This morning was “interesting” trying to feed horses with buckets and haynets. We were caught in the wind, and off we skidded along the track.
When it got scary, I turned off the anti-lamb electric fence and we scrambled over that instead to get to the Old Men with their food. Driving up our track to get to Leradale was also “interesting” but I drove up the side and we got there. Minions checked and fed, I made the decision to reverse up the Leradale track because there was nowhere safe to turn the car around. But we got home safely after sliding down our track. Phew!
Intrepid BeAnne insisted on her walk, and was all over the place. Silly girl could’ve gone on the green bits, like me. But no, that’s Patterdale terriers for you. They know best.
And this afternoon, I made a very small film. Enjoy.
Hot chocolate all round. We deserve it.
