The beast from the east in West Dorset
We rarely see snow in this neck of the woods. And a red alert? Isn’t that when you get too much sun? This week has seen both the beast from the east arrive in West Dorset and alerts all round, red and amber. The kids have enjoyed snow days, sledging and snowball fights in scenes straight from a Christmas card. But it’s not all fun and games. People and animals struggle in such treacherous conditions, so here’s our guide to sensible snowdom.
We’ve got coal, logs and kindling to keep your home and toes warm.
PEOPLE NEED PEOPLE
We know this is a friendly place but now more than ever is the time to look out for each other.
ANIMALS FEEL THE COLD TOO
They may carry their winter coats around with them but dogs, cats and smaller animals aren’t over keen on these Arctic conditions either. Keep them cosy with nutritious food, comfy bedding and a warm place to rest after being outdoors.
FEED THE BIRDS
These harsh conditions play havoc with birds energy levels so supplementing their diet with high protein feed boosts their survival chances.
