Snowing in Longridge

0937 - it's snowing in Longridge. I guess the snow lovers won the Mind over Matter experiment, but as there is so little snow so far (famous last words!) it must be a very close run thing at the moment!

Will it snow?
Like snow? Will it SO!

Snow and Bramblings

Originally uploaded by tom_charles
Well, waking up to snow in Longridge (again) was a shock, but not unexpected as Met Office NW had kindly pushed out a flash warning on the subject late last night. Thankfully, it is already melting. That said, I now have even more Bramblings ground feeding beneath the bird table. There are, currently, 24 male birds feeding with not a female bird in sight. I wonder why?

This excellent photo was taken by Tom Charles who posted it on Flickr this morning. Well done, Tom!
