More snow today

There's a pond there somewhere

Snowfall last night in Oxfordshire – a dramatic 4 cm (the amount formerly known as  ‘Not Quite Two Inches’) – was enough to bring transport chaos and school closures to the snowy wastes of, er, Abingdon again today.

Unplanned holidays aside, a definite benefit was the return, with no effort, of a nice tidy look to the garden,  something that would be handy at other times of the year if it could be arranged.

The ponds carried on as if nothing had happened.

Pond temperatures 13 Jan 2010

Temperatures in the water were completely stable night and day – with both ponds (blue for the old pond, green for the new pond) practically identical.

The thick red line is the air temperature. The thin red line is the ground temperature.
