Believe it or not, snow is pretty uncommon in the UK, especially in England. There are parts of Scotland – the Munros in Scotland, and the Brecon Beacons in Wales, which do get snow and plenty of harsh weather – but the rest of the UK is mostly temperate. So this bout of bitter cold weather and lots of snow is pretty unusual, and very difficult for the citizens.
But the pictures I’ve seen from the UK are stunningly beautiful. It’s such a gorgeous country to start with, and with a covering of snow, even more so. I remember flying back to the States, and seeing the whole country covered in snow. It was magical.
Do you see the tower in the picture?

Scotland is just such a stunning place, and even more so in the snow. Tally Ho! It’s almost Christmas and this guy feels right at home! So unusual to see a guard anything but stern and straight up. I am sure his head’s warm! Moving the horses. I think this is a fabulous picture, don’t you? I was expecting a package to be mailed from the Borders (Scotland/England) and the person told me that he lived on a long driveway on a lane and that the lane hadn’t been ploughed and so he couldn’t get out. Stay warm.
