Never seen the likes of this before

Well not here anyway, I mean not since we got the boat has it been buried! Last night a deathly hush descended all around and the snow started falling. By this morning we had a foot of the stuff that was NOT forecast. 
 
I took these at 8am amidst the doom and gloom of the crack of dawn:
 
The lumps down the jetty resembling little snowmen were plants…

Forget bow thruster this is bow blasted…

The island…
 
015
 
The towpath bridge…

017
 
Spot the abandoned (one carriage) country bumpkin train somewhere in the middle there…
 
005
 
The snow laden back cabin, and the village church with a snow covered spire in the background…
 
018
 
Frozen ropes…
 
020
 
A green box turned white…

Behind the boat looking right…

The boat next door with nobody home and no heating to melt the snow. Looks like it’s got a sad robot face on the side – was not my doing, I’d have made it look more convincing with a smile...

The view, (or lack of) from the back cabin…

So going by past record where our luck’s concerned, neither of us thought Mr Stove would make it. But he managed to get here a couple of hours late, having tip-toed past several abandoned cars on the way. Through dreadful driving conditions, he was determined to get here and we really appreciated his efforts…!
