    Another 5 inches of snow overnight. Snow plough round this morning for the first time, but very icy underneath. 17 blackbirds at the feed area today as well as many other birds.

    Oh dear, BigBilly, that doesn't sound like good driving weather, all that ice. The birds will be very happy to have your feeders to help them through this sort of weather.

    How are you at the moment, BB? Still recuperating ok?? :)

    Yes thank you Joy, I seem to be getting on quite well. Have had all the staples out and am getting around the house on two sticks, can't get far outside as we have about 7 inches of snow. Big load on the wife as she is having to look after the chickens until I'm fit enough to do it again, but ive been busy the last two days, helping her make marmalade.
    I'll be glad when the snow has gone and things get a bit easier.

    So very glad to hear this, BigBilly. :good: It would be too dangerous for you to go out in the snow with the risk of falling, etc. At least you can do stuff indoors to help out which is good. An extra pair of hands in making the marmalade would not go amiss. :D

    First sign of thaw, rain overnight and really bright sunshine this morning.
    But still 5 or 6 inches of snow.

    Still making progress after my op, getting round the house mainly without sticks now but need to sit down regularly.

    This is good to hear on all counts, BigBilly. Apart from the remaining snow that is.

    We are now feeling the early effects of ex-cyclone Oswald as it travels down the coast. Heavy rain at the moment but Central & SE Qld are experiencing tornadoes (unheard of normally) as well as flooding rain. Hope we don't get them. Flooding rains will be bad enough.

    What awesome pictures, BigBilly. They are fantastic. I know snow means it is very cold & that we shall never, ever, have it here but it looks so beautiful. Thanks for posting them & am so glad you were able to overcome the problems you were having. Happy for you that the weather has warmed up.

    Meanwhile we are having really wild weather & some of my patio plants are getting knocked around but at least we haven't had any tornadoes like elsewhere. A neighbour lost part of his roof with rain pouring down. Must have been fun for them.

    The rain continues. We drove to Lismore yesterday, usually a drive of about 45kms, but were forced to take a roundabout route as there was deep water across the road near Wyrallah not far from Lismore.

    When we were returning home, as we knew the Wyrallah road was closed, we went via Coraki & were nearly through that village when we came upon another "Road Closed Flood" sign. Had to turn around, cross a bridge & travel around the river through the countryside. Luckily it was picturesque. It would not have taken much more water for the river to cover the road as it was already above its banks & was close to the road.

    Made it home safe & sound eventually. It made for a very interesting drive, though. :smile:

    Back to winter with a bang, snow overnight, minus 5 with the bitter east wind, equivelant to wind chill of minus 12. The only consolation is its a beautiful sunny day.

    Having a good spell of dry sunny weather but the nights are still below freezing at times.

    At least we are able to get out in the garden and get started with the work

    That is good to hear, BigBilly. You would not be worried by the cold nights with your wonderful home keeping you snug & warm, I'd imagine. :D The plants might feel it though. :lol3:

    At least with the sunny days the central heating is only on in the evenings Joy, but by the end of the month hope to have it off for the summer.
    Its oil fired and like burning money.

    That would be right BigBilly, especially with the price oil is in the UK. Thought our oil/petrol costs were high but have heard these are much more expensive for you. Rug up. :lol3:

    Welcome, Jandante, to APG. Yes, it does sound as though we do. Today it is cloudy with intermittent showers which are coming in off the ocean & starting to cool things down. Worse luck.

    Hi Joy, Thanks for the Welcome. I'm usually outside early, but caught up on your site this morning..... Hubby is out with the hens, which we have only had a few weeks, and it is a very grey day.

    Do hope the sun will return very soon. Think we have had enough rain for the moment here on the coast.

    Forgot to mention, Jan, I do like your avatar. They are such beautiful flowers.

    Yes Joy, the Azalea bush is very old, but displays some glorious blooms.

    Its coloration is gorgeous, Jan, love the mauve edging. Azaleas don't seem to do too well here in EH. Might be the sea air & humidity. Have only seen some scrawny little bushes growing in some gardens. Of course, there may be some lovely bushes growing here & I haven't noticed them. :lol3:

    Yes we well and truly saw the mackerel sky as Barry cleaned out a friend's gutters, (instead of our usual Monday morning music session) and we were outside for a couple of hours. We asked what she was doing with the matter, and she said "Throwing it out", so we said "We'll have it" and the proceeds were about four medium sized bags of beautiful compost, the result of a full grown pine tree and others shedding into the gutters.
