The Weather Gods have turned my Devon village (and most of England) into a winter wonderland of snow, and Normal Daily Life has come to a screeching halt. Yesterday the little lanes leading into the village were completely blocked, cutting us off from the rest of the world. Today they are marginally better...but we're told that another snow storm is on the way, perhaps even bigger than the first. We've stocked up on food, dog treats, and coffee, and are preparing ourselves for an exciting weekend.
In this pause between storms, I hiked down the icy roads into my office to check up on email and editorial commitments, and to post these photographs. This is Tilly's first experience of snow. She is, as you can see, utterly ecstatic. I love her "Snowflake Dance" in the picture above, which reminds me of the Snoopy Dance -- a childhood favorite.
