Ice age.

I don't think I've ever experienced a winter as cold and extended as this.

For winter we cover our pool with a large black tarpaulin, which becomes permanently filled with about 4 inches of water. This water has been frozen over for weeks, and even Freddie (the cat) now takes short-cuts across its surface.

It's Shrove Tuesday (pancake day) and we are, at last, promised decent mid-day temperatures. I just hope our sub-zero nights are done with.


  1. We in Blighty have settled down to the traditional 2 months of grey skies and drizzle now, it appears, and the spirit of the Blitz caused by a few days of frozen snow has gone. Can't wait for spring now.
