Dawn breaks in the east and illuminates the snow that has fallen overnight.
Last night was very cold indeed, so it’s no surpise to awaken to such a winter landscape.
As I write this at 11am, the snow has begun to fall silently once more, surprising the onlooker at the sudden transformation.
Somewhere, deep within the recesses of the barn, is stored a sleigh and there’s a good possibility that it will be brought out this weekend!
Just another five days until the time of the midwinter solstice.
This lasts for about three days or so and if the weather is good, with clear skies, then the Newgrange visitors should be well pleased!
