30th January 2010

I had a full post planned for today starting with how when I went to bed last night the sky was grey and it was freezing, when I woke at 2am my bedroom was bright pink and outside there was a huge snowstorm and I mean huge ..... which resulted in about 6" of snow this morning -- of course the boys thought it was great.
I was also going to take you on a trip to my favourite shop but I'm going to save that for another day......... why have I changed my mind you might ask, well I'll tell you

The moon , have you seen the moon tonight - absolutely gorgeous and huge. The first full and the biggest and brightest moon of the year, it's what they call the Wolf Moon.

I took these pictures about 6.30pm this evening , apologies for the bluriness ( is that a even a word ?) Apparantly it's also the best night to see Mars too , and I don't mean the chocolate bar !!

This one I just ran to the front door and took and it's 9.45pm --- brrrr shivers

If you are interested the next full moon is February 28th and it's called the Ice Moon..

Great photos.

It was to cloudy here to see the moon so thank you for those wonderful pic's. You really are getting your share of snow this year. Still none for us...yet!

I took moon photos too! it was huge! and yes the snow, that was a suprise, I'm guessing we got 3 inches. love the moon naming, will be on the lookout for the ice moon next month.

I was really interested to hear this moon is called the Wolf Moon as I had been really wow-ed by it the other night too! It really looked incredible! Lucy x
