Here is yet another beautiful storm and accumulation of ice following the snow.


Don’t miss the giant icicle.


Look at the icicles around Lisa’s house. She had to have the flat roof chipped out piece by piece. Enough…


You will see our carpenter chipping out the ice on the roof. Many of the roofs that froze needed a jackhammer. The bushes below took a terrible toll.

It was beautiful, please not again.

My gawd Wells, I shall never complain about our snowfall again. Can you imagine that giant icicle falling, it could kill.

Wow Wells, you've really had it bad

It looks lovely Wells, but rather you than me!!! Those icicles are huge. Do you still have snow?

Beautiful photos Wells, especially the blue sky one. Hope you are keeping cosy and warm.

Hi Wells ...That is c-c-c-c-c-c-cold !

Keep safe and warm...

Oh my gosh, great photographs but I`m glad we don`t get them like that, I can see why you have to remove them, they`d do lots of damage, I`d say the weight alone could easily pull the guttering down, the thoughts of them falling onto somebody is scary...

Quite beautiful Wells....the houses are so lovely, the sky so blue, and the snow looks so 'clean'. When we get snow here, it's all grey slush and muck in no time at all. Having said all of that, I don't envy you one bit :))

Thanks for all the comments. It was an interesting time. All the neighbors reached out to each other to see if they could help. And did we know of anyone who could scrape off their roof. Yes, it did rip off the gutters, and removed some of the slate on the slate roofs. Finally there was no place to put the snow, and it kept falling. I imagine you had the same in and around London, but probably worse from the point of view, what do we do with the stuff???

The piles of snow cleared from the drives and paths last year were so high around here they took ages to thaw. The kids loved to slide down them though. Your snow is bad enough but the ice is nasty. The icicles are so beautiful to look at but wow they are enormous.

We're having just that problem here, ourselves, Wells. Loads of pavements are taped off (even if you could walk on them - they are 3' deep in filthy, packed snow and ice) because you can see the icicles and sheet ice sliding off the roofs above, which would be pretty much the equivalent of a guillotine to anyone standing 3 floors below. We still aren't sure how anyone in these houses gets out. Walking in the narrowed roadway on sheet ice isn't a safe option, either! Hope you soon see warmer, safer weather.
