The Big Freeze.

This is what the weather has been branded as in the UK.
Honestly, i think alot of people are just fed up with the snow now, it prevents them from getting to their jobs, going out for food, the post office, the gym...etc.
We don't get snow like this very often, once or twice a year at most usually.
So when it does come, it's alsmot as if people don't know how to deal with it...
We have a "salt" shortage where i live, so the roads are ridiculous, and we aren't in a town or a city, so we pretty much are stranded..but i like it.
I really love snow, i think people should make the most of it, i actually like the fact everything comes to a stop, and you see families sledging in the fields and making snowmen. It's cute & extremely beautiful to look at. I always say that snow is like a clean sheet that covers all the dirt, making it look 10x more pretty..but also very deadly (as we know)
Although, as i said, i live in the countryside..i'm sure those of you in towns and cities will not agree with me.
Here are a few photos i took today on a walk. Hope you like them.

  3. I don't mind it normally but it has stopped me working and getting paid which will result in me having to borrow money to pay my rent next week. I'd much rather have rain and be able to work :(

  4. Beautiful pictures :) I grew up in the country so know exactly what you mean. I live in Birmingham now though so I'm getting a bit fed up of being stuck inside. Great post.

  10. It looks so nice there! I have nowhere to be this week so I'm quite lucky. I feel sorry for my boyfriend trudging to work through the snow every morning, he has to because he's a temp in his job so he doesn't get paid time off for bad weather and can't take holidays!

  13. It looks gorgeous but I do hate the snow! I live in a town in Greater London and it's a nightmare. It does look pretty but I'd much rather have a bit of heat :)

    I've posted a couple of picture of the snow where I live if you wanted to see on my blog

  15. Love the pictures. :) Would love to live in the countryside, in London all the snow has turned to ice. Unlike most people I actually wish I could go to school now as I have a Maths exam on Monday, maybe it will snow then and I don't have to do it. Here's hoping. ;)

  17. i live in the country too, and i love the snow :)
    people always complain that we never get snow, but when we do..they always complain about it!!
    it makes everything seem kinda magical :)
    i love being all cosy inside with a cup of tea looking out at a winter wonderland :D

  21. Everyone keeps moaning about the snow but I love it! I think they're all convinced it's the apocalypse or something. haha.

  22. Wow. Those are some good pics. I live in Chicago, so we get this stuff ALL the time (in winter of course!) and we are in the middle of quite the storm.

    Even southern states are getting hit with snow (which makes people unable to go anywhere--they don't know what to do) and most of the country is in this freeze! It's bonkers.

    We are expected to get a total of 9 inches of snow by tomorrow morning and even though we get this all the time--people still act like a snowflake is making them drive 2 MPH. Craziness.

    Enjoy your snow!

  30. Gorgeous photos ! I really wish we had that snow over here. I love winter and I love snow .... BUT never was in snow hehe. I think I would like it , like the way everything looks white and I go agree with you it does make the roads look more pretty :D.

  31. I totally agree! I love the snow. I live in the countryside in Scotland, we get this every year. Is it just me or is England blowing this waaay out of proportion? Overreacting? I think so. We get this every year, same snow, same temperatures and we arent plastered "moaning" and panicking about it. I appreciate it would be difficult for people in cities but it really isnt that bad.. theres worse places!! Enjoy it! Snow does you the world of good! I just wish everyone would appreciate it. Sorry for the little rant, love the pictures Zoe!! xxx

  37. wow! i wish we had snow like that over here! Living practically next to the beach means almost no snow :( and when it does it just turns in treacherous ice...

    ReplyDelete
  38. Lovely photos as always <3 You make the snow look wonderful to be in. But in my city, it's just like what you said! Everything just kind of shuts DOWN 'cause noone knows how to deal with it. Last year we had a snowstorm here and everyone was basically snowed in ALL through the holidays 'cause people couldn't get out of their houses or drive through the snow lol! xx

  39. Hey, I'm going to the Uk next thursday (super excited) for studies and I've heard it was really cold, just worried about how I'm gonna walk to school with snow that thick, nice pictures btw.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Your photos are beautiful and I do love the snow, when I have nothing to do. When i was a student the snow was fun but once you've got a job to get to it just isn't the same! I've crashed the car once and nearly crashed today skidding on black ice...i'm over winter! Snow Scrooge xx
