Hannibal would have been proud

Snow Elephant

Snow Elephant

My son, Matthew, works for Frontier Developments in Cambridge. This lunchtime they created this snow elephant – just for the fun of it and to be different from the ┬ámore traditional snow man.

To my mind I think it’s rather spectacular, especially as it stands four to five feet high. He hopes it’s still there tomorrow so that they can finish it off.

Is this the best snow sculpture of the current cold weather?

Don’t forget the birds

As the snow falls and you struggle to lead a normal life please remember the birds. They need to consume many times their body weight to stay allive in this weather. A little seed, fat and nuts can make the difference between life and death.
