One of the most unexpected sights I have ever seen. This is a lane I often walk down, and I would never have imagined it being completely blocked by snowdrifts. Here is the same lane in May, but when I took this photo on Friday the weather was wild.
I piled on eight (yes, really) layers of clothing and went out for a long walk. I took plenty of photos so I could send them to my son, who is in Ireland and has had similar weather, and my daughter, who is in Portugal and has complained that they have been having biblical rain. Then I found I couldn't send them the mini documentary video by email, so I stuck it on YouTube. Just make sure you wrap up warm before you watch it.
