Arrivals and returns

With the new year, winter finally made a (late) arrival. In January we got severe minus degrees and even had 3 snowstorms within just 2 weeks. One of them bringing almost a meter of snow basically over night. There was a lot of wind during the storm leading to snowdrifts and fallen trees, which in…

Snow and alpacas

It snowed all day and all night yesterday and I awoke to a white landscape with more snow still falling. The temperatures are now steadily below 0°C and the snow is still left this time (YAYY!!).

Beautiful winter sunsets

Most of this winter was a living hell regarding weather. The last few months of 2019 were incredibly dark and grey with hardly any clear sky at all. This additional to the very little amount of light hours everyday made the darkness hard to bear. Not even my beloved stars were visible on most days,…
