This is Ireland, we get 3 or 4 flakes of snow each year. That's it. Unless you are up the "mountains" (hills) and you might get enough to make a very short snowman.
This year we had several inches, and real cold. Not the 2 Celsius (35 F) that we usually get, we were getting -10 Celsius (14 F).
I took my 3 year old out on a sleigh. She loved it till she got cold.
People's pipes froze, and burst. Lakes froze over. Some people I work with took 5 hours to get home.
All this means that I have done very little on the boat since I took the pictures.
I've sharpened a few hand tools, and read a lot, but real no progress.
