15 Feb 2019 .... where we live on the lazy bend of the Venta River - when the ice starts to break up ... we get it collecting as its flows downriver and sometimes can be pretty worrying. This year appears to be much calmer and less concern ...

Here the birds are still using the last of the ice to stand on ... while the flows carry past ...

We`ve had some very sunny weather in blighty but fairly cold. The weather is usually very wet and miserable in February, unfortunately it is set to change.
Wot, no Depron?

I hated UK winters as they were always 'wet cold' ... which gets to the bones. I moved out here in early 90's and winters were crisp and dry ... very cold - but air was clean ... 
Now we have UK style winters ... 

Today I went out before wind got too much to video the river ...
