None for us.

Hi, Well it seems just about everyone else has had more than there share of Snow but.......not us here in Teignmouth. On Tuesday night at around 10 pm it started snowing very heavily (first time for us)and at around 12.30am it had started to settle well, In the morning around 8am i woke and looked out of the bedroom window, lo and behold Rain, heavy Rain, no Snow anywhere in sight. later in the day we decided to try a bit of shopping at our new Morrisons store (quite impressed) on the way we could see on the very top of the hills above Shaldon, a little snow. Later going toward Newton we culd see Dartmoor was covered (8 miles from us as the Crow flies) all over. Well anyone who knows Sue will tell she is a Snow addict, like Bees to Honey, so of course i had to take her up.It would also hopefully allow us to get to Dartmeet to feed the Birds at the Bird tables there, i wouldn't think anyone else would have been therein that lot. The Weather at home when we left was 3c so i new the Moors (over 2,000 ft higher) would be a lot different. Normally i would probably not have risked it but i recently bought myself a couple of Winter helpers.A set of Snow Socks (Asda direct £35) they get cracking reports and supposedly improve grip over ordinary tyres by at least 300%.They fit around the Tyres/Wheels with elasticated bands and are supposed to be fitable in under 5 minutes the pair. Also i bought 2 aerosol tins of Ice grip Spay, again its supposed to improve grip with just a few sprays of the tyres for a get of Jail if stuck.At around 11am off we went.
 Here we are about 2 miles onto the moors, the main roads are'nt to bad but the smaller roads are still dodgy,Temp 1c now.
Please Click on any picture to enlarge it.

We are now almost on the top near Haytor, and the main road is fine, reasonably clear although the Temperature has now dropped to 0c

We reached Dartmeet and the Car park was very icy, we were the only car there.So we fed our Birds, all the feeders and trays were empty so i think they were glad to see us.Within 5-6 mins we had about 10 Long Tailed Tits, 5 Chaffinches, 4 great Tits, 5-6 Nuthatches + Blue Tits, Coal Tits, Marsh Tits and Blackbirds all viaing for the food (there was loads there.
These are the Bird tables we built, there are 3 plus Fatball feeders.
The second picture shows a family of Long Tailed Tits (pctures through Windscreen)
 This picture is of our friendly Great Spotted Wodpecker, he usualy goes to the fatball feeder but today he was feeding on seeds and Suet pellets we scattered on the floor, mainly for the Yellowhammers, Chaffinches,  Robins, Dunnocks..

On the way home we passed several Dartmoor Ponies that were rooting in the snow and eating tree shoots.

Joke of the day.

man and a woman were sitting beside each other in the first class section of an airplane.
The woman sniffed, sneezed, took out a tissue, gently wiped her nose, then visibly shuddered for ten or fifteen seconds.
The man went back to reading his book.  A few minutes later, the woman sniffed and sneezed again, took a tissue, wiped her nose, then shuddered violently once more.
Although assuming the woman might have a cold, the man was still curious about the shuddering.
A few minutes passed when it happened yet again. As before she took a tissue, wiped her nose, her body shaking even more than before.
Unable to restrain his curiosity, the man turned to the woman and said, "I couldn't help but notice that you have sniffed and sneezed three times, wiped your nose, and then shuddered violently. Are you okay?"
The woman replied, "I am sorry if I disturbed you. I have a rare medical condition. Whenever I sneeze, I have an orgasm."
The man, more than a bit embarrassed, was still curious. "I have never heard of that condition before," he said. "Are you taking anything for it?"
The woman nodded. "Snuff."
