Yet more snow

This is getting ridiculous. It’s officially Spring already, but I’m snowed in again! I was meant to be at Eastnor Pottery today, at a throwing workshop. Jon the Potter phoned me last night to say that all the other attendees were travelling some distance, so were cancelling due to the Amber weather warning for snow, but that he’d be there anyway as he lives on the Eastnor estate within walking distance of the pottery. So if I could make it I was very welcome, but if it was too difficult to get there then not to worry, he’d rearrange it.

I woke up this morning to that very strange white-blue light coming through the curtains, which means the garden’s covered in snow. It’s drifted on the drive, and is nearly a foot deep in places. It’s going to be at least an hour’s worth of digging to get the car free. Plus the road didn’t appear to have been ploughed overnight and looked downright dangerous to me. So I phoned the pottery and said that there was no way I would be able or willing to get there today.

Thats a shame, as I’ve been looking forward to doing some more throwing. There was a craft fare in the grounds of Malvern Priory yesterday which I walked around, and one of the pottery stalls had stuff that was very similar to mine  (and no better thrown – I had a good look!) which made me hanker to get back on the wheel and throw some bigger pieces to stretch myself. But that will have to wait until I can actually get there safely and without the need for a snow plough!

    I went to Scottish highlands and missed it all, was all east over cairngorms. Had lovely sunny weather, even sunny on Skye, so disappointing there was no more snow !

    You might get another opportunity later this week if the weather forecasts are accurate!
