Wishing and Hoping

Tana would love to see normal service resumed for amateur equestrian sports. People who know tell me that the horses are really missing the camaraderie, the thrill and competitiveness of their hobbies.

It’s Never too Cold to Snow

Distilled wisdom from

It snows in Alaska at minus 40 degrees. Snow once fell at The South Pole at minus 50. 

So where did we get this too cold to snow idea?

In Northern Europe very cold weather is very often associated with high pressure. When the pressure is high there is little air movement, so the cold air sinks, warming as it falls. This means that there is little water left in the air to form clouds. 

Although it is bitterly cold there is no cloud to produce snow.
