winter wonderland

Winter has arrived overnight...most of Northern Ireland woke up to about 5-6 inches of snow. And as we're not used to these conditions, the country has more or less ground to a halt. Apparently the snow will be gone by late this afternoon and we'll be back to our usual rain...
Sorry for not posting over the last week or so- I've had a busy Christmas - so here's a belated Happy New Year.

Here, in Sesimbra, heavy snow happened only once, aspeople can remember, in the XX century, and we can find a photo of that day reproduced in several coffe-shops.
Happy New Year, Blueboat!

Great view of the snow-covered roofs!

Great shot, I had no idea it snows in Ireland. My mother used to live in County Galway. Maybe too warm there.

The snow looks so pretty! Memphis would grind to a halt, too.

Happy New Year!
