It took a little longer to get to and from work at the weekend. I crept along the road with one eye looking ahead, and the other on the amazing snow formations built up against the hedge.
|Crazy shapes created by the strong winds and light snow, can you see the face?!|
Drifting snow is only raised from the ground surface by the wind to a height of less than 2 m (6 ft.) creeping, rolling and bouncing above the surface.
The snow which is being blown about may deposit as snowdrifts.
|Not so droopy...|
