Thanks very much Andy for your kind words and for taking the time to read the account, It took me 2-3 days to do and I got round to completing it at 04.30 this morning, so that's why I need to go back over it and correct spelling mistakes, my eyes and brain had enough at that time of the morning lol.

I went for a 3 mile walk around Glenshane forest today with my Dad, it was exhausting in the snow, it almost put me to bed early. The snowdrifts are 4ft deep or more in places after days melting in the Sun, there are dozens of trees flattened and laying across the trek where we walked, some of the trees were snapped clean in half like twigs, one was +60ft long, it looks like a serious event had taken place there. Other trees moaned leaning on their neighbours ready to fall on unsuspecting walkers, one thing is for sure, I would not have liked to have been here on Wed night with those trees coming down!. Funny thing was after seeing +8ft of snowdrifts several days ago there was a guy there today stuck in 1" of slush/snow which only covered 6ft of a lay by, he was out with the shovel as we drove past - comical that he would get stuck in that  Smiley
