We had an yellow snow warning, then we were upgraded to an amber snow warning, I always thought snow was white - ah ha! I now know what the forecasters were on about........................
Amber snow! or is it yellow? pretty rare stuff I doubt coz most places you look it has a whiteish hue about it.
Aye! It snowed, quite a change from Thursday
So, that was Thursday. Friday saw hay being frantically laid out for sheep, Friday afternoon saw sheep being hounded in to lower ground, where the hay was laid out for them, ready for the onslaught, and it came, right on cue, this was the yellow snow we'd been warned about. It wasn't until today, Monday, that the amber stuff appeared, again right on cue. The weekend had seen as much feed put out for sheep as possible before the onslaught of wind and snow hit them and had them blocked out from the comfort of feed and security.
This picture may not exactly show signs of comfort and security but at least if they should get happed with snow in these driving winds I'll know where to find them.
