Alston Moor Snow Blower Blowing Snow Hartside
I just thought I’d share a couple of pictures sent to me by Brian from Nenthead showing the new ice age that’s starting to develop over the hill (from here…) - and also the otherwwise superb weather that I can't seem to get to....
Alston Moor Snow Blower on Hartside Pass
I’m a bit miffed that I can’t actually get anywhere much in the car at the moment – I did give the knipemobile a little run around Tow Law yesterday, to keep it reasonably healthy – and then I got it stuck just outside Pie Towers and had to use spades, bits of carpet, three blokes, some road grit and the wife to get it moving again. Then I got stuck again and a lass who said she used to live in Tow Law pushed me out, then I couldn’t get it in the garage. So, pro-tem, its staying where it is, specially as they seem to have stopped gritting places that aren’t “A” roads.
Anyway – I thought the pictures were rather good. They include a hint from Brian to come and dig a snowhole – and I’ve added a picture from last year’s snowhole digging day just to illustrate a finished item. It looks like the pile of snow outside Brian’s is quite a bit bigger than last year though.

I wonder if I could catch the bus up Weardale and walk over the hill?
