Clouds over Picuris Peak south of Taos, New Mexico

Near Miss

It tried to snow here on Thursday, but all we got were these low clouds over Picuris Peak and rare fog elsewhere.

The UK is freezing its little Union Jack ass off and has been since before Christmas. Scotland has had temperatures of 4 degrees Fahrenheit. A few people own huskies(!!!) and have coupled them up to sleds. Now where were they keeping those all this time, we wonder.A whole generation of small children living in the South of England are seeing snow for the first time. We have no snowchains on vehicles. The road grit is running out. Schools have been shut for over a week. Nobody heard of snow days until now. Electricity and gas are threatening to run out. But still I have a snowcovered view of JH Farr’s back yard on my screensaver, masochist that I am. Keep ’em coming, John, and thanks!

I will, Gillian.

That all sounds pretty wild for the UK, I have to say. Of course, 4° F is the normal low range for January here. 🙂

Yeah, I know. And you get the fantastic wilderness scenery, too!

Agree with the “Fantastic Wilderness Scenery” comment!!! And what an “eerie” Photograph! Sure does look like snow is imminent….but apparently not…..(a Plus AND a Minus I suppose?!?)
It seems it has been colder in Okiehoma than Taos this winter….I still have two feet drifts of snow in my yard from our Christmas Blizzard of 2009!!!
