    Hanging & hoping for snow.

    The UK is set for a big fall of snow tonight (well by UK standards anyway). While our news channels are telling us to take cover and expect disruption, I couldnt help seeing this as a great opportunity to set up in the garden and hope to wake up with snow on my tarp

    So I'm warm under my burrow with the tarp pulled tight and the sound of the wind blowing hard. I hope I'm not forced to retreat back into the house.

    Have fun hanging in the snow. I love it snowing hard and hanging and watching the snow bounce off my cuben tarp. Hope I get more snow when I am not working. Enjoy!
