Thinking of a UK Winter

We were talking narrowboats the other night... yes, I know, we spend a lot of time talking about them... and realized that this time next year we may be heading into our first UK Winter.  With the Aussie Summer upon us I thought I might find a "narrowboat in the snow" photo for my laptop background.  I searched on the net and found some fabulous photos.  I noticed that almost all the photos I liked had come from one source and that I'd probably seen them all before - the blog written by Fiona and John on nb Epiphany.

I emailed Fiona to ask if it's ok to put their photos on my blog and she made this comment "the snow last year was the worst we have ever encountered on the canals so maybe you won't have it so bad when you come over".  So bad?  What do you mean? We want snow!!  Now I know all you folk who live on your narrowboats will probably think we're crazy to wish for snow, and I know it will rarely look as pretty as these pictures.  I know it gets muddy and slushy when the snow melts.  We just want to experience it all.  Watch this space..... we might one day be complaining about the cold and the snow!

Meanwhile, here's what we're looking forward to.

Hi Elly,

Found your blog through Tom & Jans blog list scanned back a while to see your recent return to Aus. Got more and more intreged to the point I'm reading your blog from the start! Just wanted to say this post is a stand out one for me so far. Great pictures you have located there.
Snow is very nice but only if it turns up on a Friday evening! It's havoc otherwise. Well down here in Wells anyhow, North of the border they are geared up for it so it has little impact. I wonder if you get any in your future posts? I'll have to wait and see.
