Snow - At least its seasonal

Posted by Picasa
If only we could cope with it, when we have snow like this, the whole country just grinds to a halt.
But this has happened now for the last two years, and if its the weather pattern of the future then surely we have to change and invest in facilities to deal with adverse weather.

In the Bleak Mid Winter

In the Bleak Mid Winter by Christina Rossetti, its one of my favourites!

In the bleak midwinter, frosty wind made moan,
Earth stood hard as iron, water like a stone;
Snow had fallen, snow on snow, snow on snow,
In the bleak midwinter, long ago.

Our God, Heaven cannot hold Him, nor earth sustain;
Heaven and earth shall flee away when He comes to reign.
In the bleak midwinter a stable place sufficed
The Lord God Almighty, Jesus Christ.

Enough for Him, whom cherubim, worship night and day,
Breastful of milk, and a mangerful of hay;
Enough for Him, whom angels fall before,
The ox and ass and camel which adore.

Angels and archangels may have gathered there,
Cherubim and seraphim thronged the air;
But His mother only, in her maiden bliss,
Worshipped the beloved with a kiss.

What can I give Him, poor as I am?
If I were a shepherd, I would bring a lamb;
If I were a Wise Man, I would do my part;
Yet what I can I give Him: give my heart.

Before and after

The top is the old road bridge to Taffs Well but now its by passed by the A470, certainly making for a quieter village with the volume of traffic today .
