Our beautiful country


Isn't this the most amazing image? Coped from BBC News website, this is Britain as seen from a NASA satellite yesterday.

It's beautiful isn't it! I don't think I've seen anything like it.

It's fabulous, isn't it? We probably won't see anything like it again for another 100 years!

It's amazing to see the whole country like that.
I wish I still had a sledge to pull the shopping bags on when I trudge to the shops!!
I threw it out earlier in the year as it was unused for years, the snow never around long enough to use it. Isn't that always the way?

Brilliant image! During the great freeze of 1963 my Dad bought a beautiful wooden sledge. I remember using it on numerous occasions (why are winters always stunning and snowy in your memory?). We still have that sledge. My daughter loved it when she was little and I have high hopes my grandchildren (as yet unborn) will enjoy it too!

It is a great picture and I'm glad to have been part of it but if I woke up in the morning and found the snow gone I would be soooooo happy.

Wow!

Yes - amazing picture. Every inch covered by snow and ice - must be unique.

By the way, can anyone tell me why, when there's been a blue sky, sunshine and it's still snowing (not today - sky is ominously white!) - there isn't a Snow-bow in the sky? There should be, shouldn't there??

It's like something from an apocalyptic film, isn't it? It's mad and disruptive but so, so beautiful.
