OK, it was quite old.
It's built on poles - where you see snow, there's a wooden platform - and they held, but the snow was too heavy for the roof.

Oh oh .... I hope nobody got hurt, and you can salvage what was in there?

There wasn't much - we had a hunch - but the floor held, actually. Definitely not safe to walk on, but they did get the things out. Then they pulled it all down so that nobody will get hurt.
It happened at night, no one about.

Oh my. I'd heard it was chilly in your neck of the woods but I didn't know it was that cold. I'm glad you've got your stuff out.

Over here we've had lots of rain in the south and flooding. Where I am the sun is shining.

Traditionally, it's cold for 40 days, starting on winter solstice. They call it chilikalan, which means 'grumpy old man'. Then comes his wife chilibudi, and she's much less grumpy. When she leaves after 40 days, it's spring. :)

Seem to be many floods in northern Europe nowadays. Good to know you aren't in one of them.

I live on a hill at least a couple of hundred metres above sea level and a few miles from the coast. I'm protected from the winds by Cumbria in the north, the Pennines in the east and Wales to the south. Ireland breaks up any storms arriving from the west.

I'm probably in the most sheltered part of England and Jack Frost rarely bites my nose.

Happy birthday, dear Ulla! I noticed it's a special one, too, so enjoy!

I hope you are ok - I'm looking forward to new photos ...

Thank you, but I hate being old. I'm not celebrating this birthday at all.
I don't quite know why, but I never take photos anymore. OK, I've had such "dead" periods before, so it'll probably pass.

I thought getting 50 was MUCH more brutal than 60, but my mother felt like you about it.

Yes, we all need time-outs every once in a while. I just wanted you to know that I always looked at your pictures with lots of interest.

Best wishes - birthday or not! ;-)
