Solutions then Snow...

Today's post won't be very long, nor writing related.

Our house has had a very bad case of Water Hammer recently- so whenever anyone turns on/off the hot taps there's a horrid noise.

Fortunately the heating was okay- I don't work well in cold.

The heating Engineer visited today and the solution is a valve being inserted into the pipework - seems we have a water pressure issue.

It will be a couple of days before it can be done, but it's not going to be too costly a job - thankfully. But it has limited writing time. :(

I thought I'd share a few of my snow pictures from today with you.

At lunchtime we had a sudden downfall and the snow settled quite quickly, but now most of it has turned to slush and the sun is shining again.

It's Snowing


One minute it was just cold with a dull sky - I was in the process of refilling the bird food containers when the phone rang just as I was about to go back out, and in the 30 seconds it took to go from the kitchen door to the phone, the sky's opened...







Blue Sky Arriving...


After about half an hour the snow eased up and started to melt.

I just caught the back edge of the snow cloud as blue sky appeared again...







Turned to Slush...
We often miss the snow in the lower areas of Nottinghamshire, so when it does arrive, even half an hour's fall is interesting to watch.

Though I know it can also be very hazardous for others, so if you're deluged with snow at the moment, stay safe...

Strangely enough there's a light snow flurry just started outside...

  1. Never heard of the phrase 'water hammer' before! I'm glad you're not without heating while it's being sorted out.

  2. It's very noisy, but in the worst moments it sounds like the water is hammering to get out of the pipes, Patsy.

    Yesterday the noise was bad again, but this morning not too bad. I'll just be glad to get the appointment date for fixing it!
