After The Storm A Quietness Of Snow On Saturday night we had high winds and deluge. Rain pounded the roof-lights for hours. The gale buffeted about the cottage. Today we woke to eerie stillness, the sort that only comes with snow. Share this:PrintTumblrPinterestMoreFacebookTwitterLinkedInLike this:Like Loading... Related

What a beautiful photo. Keep warm! We’ve had a lot of hail.
Thanks, Jude. It’s definitely a soup day, though I don’t think the snow will last long. It’s very sloshy.
I hate sloshy snow. The deep and crisp and even stuff is good. We have pepper an butternut squash soup for lunch, it is very tasty. I bet you can whip up a soup quickly with things from the allotment.
Our soup was mostly squash too – plus an ice brick of polytunnel tomato sauce from the freezer.
Ooh, that sounds nice.
It was! 🙂
How beautiful, I love the quiet after a snow
There’s nothing quite like it, is there.
I love the composition and the red white and black.
Thank you, Sherry.
I love the eerie stillness of snow. Wishing you a good year.. Janet :)X
Thank you, Janet. All the very best everything to you too.
Thanks, Thom. What’s the weather doing with you?
Cold at night, beautiful days.
Dry, dry, dry.
I’ll take it though.
We could do with some of your ‘dry’.
What a beautiful image – and more so as it is signifying respite after what must have been a rather scary storm.
The storm was a bit alarming – though more bark than bite as it turned out. But yes, it was good to have some quiet weather.
Beautiful photo, Tish, one that makes me realize how much I miss snow and that quiet you mention. One morning before we moved to Arizona in March, we had a very good snow and I made it to the park before anyone else had been there. It was stunningly beautiful and pervaded by that quiet. I could scarcely contain my joy and it was the perfect going away present.
And thank you for sharing that ‘present’, Janet. Our snow has mostly gone now and it’s all v. gloomy, so it’s good to have your shiny version.
So pretty!…. at a distance, Tish 🙂 🙂
T’is more bleak mid-winterish now. Sleet tomorrow instead. I have v. cold knees!
Aww, bless! ❄️🧣🧤🧦💕
Isn’t it amazing how quite things are after a snow fall. Peaceful!
It’s the best thing about snow – that peaceful quietness.
Lovely image Tish. Falling snow is a largely alien experience for me, so I’m really enjoying the conversation here.
Thanks, Su. We don’t often get snow these days, well apart from 3 lots we had 3 years ago. But I love watching it fall – so-oooo softly.
Really cool photo. The effect of the snow on the crab apples (?) is great.
In complete contrast, it pipped 32c and at around 5 we had a humongous Highveld storm!
Thanks, Ark. Emphasis definitely on ‘cool’. I think I would have enjoyed that Highveld storm.
Lovely image, Tish…and the quietness of snow is a marvellous description.Sounds like it was a wild night
It was indeed a wild night. I’m not sure that any more wetness will fit into Wenlock.
I would love to see snow like that. It’s promised this Friday, but we’ll see. Thank you for the beautiful image!
You’re welcome, Aggie.
So beautiful, Tish, so beautiful! I feel the stillness, the quiet…an absolutely peaceful image. Gosh how I miss that feeling. Thank you for delivering it.
I was thinking of you and your lack of snow. It’s a fairly rare happening here, except on high ground. Though a few years ago we did have 3 separate large snow falls, after years of none. Last year the snow returned to Kilimanjaro after years with little or none.
Happy to hear about Kilimanjaro! I still hope there will be some snow this winter.
Gorgeous. There’s a pretty good blanket of snow outside my door too now, and the word is there will be more tomorrow.
Ours went and then came again today. It’s pretty nippy around the peripheries.
Lovely image Tish.
Thank you, Alison.
Brrrrr! We’re on our second day of it falling but has yet to settle thank goodness
It’s just started here too. V. gloomy and chilly.
oh no – it has stopped here now, not settled and the sun has come out 🙂
The photo is Christmas card perfect Tish, and that is exactly as I like to experience it. Don’t think I could survive a northern winter now.
Thank you, Pauline. I can well understand the need to keep a good distance between you and our northern cold. I’m now having a yen for your tropical climes.
Would love to host you over here Tish.
Oh that’s so lovely of you! Would love meet up in your gorgeous domain. Apart from which, it’s freezing here today. We’re not very used to frostiness these days.
