Life in the Freezer

Wednesday, December 1st, 2010

Today is Wednesday the first of December 2010 and it looks like we will have snow on the ground well into next week. A truck load fell this morning dumping at least six inches more on top of the approximately ten inches that was already there. Great fun but hey, this is Ireland washed by the North Atlantic Drift, what’s happening?

Took the dog out for a run around between the showers, both Ruby and Nat had a ball.

Well I will not forget this birthday in a hurry.

Yours truly crossing the rubicon.

Service with a smile, there are not many publicans who will deliver this level of service. Well done Mylie, stick us on two Guinness and a couple of whiskey chasers.

Hack Out in the Snow

Four days snowed in, the lane outside is a sheet of glass. Three times in one year, will definitely be purchasing wheel chains. Meanwhile, to make the most of this early winter wonderland there is nothing like a good ride in the woods.

Plenty of trees down to jump.

Would you really consider developing a hard rock quarry here?
