Hi Bedri, this is a letter box on the road near my house - I usually walk here to post my letters. I thought it looked very pretty in the snow!

Greetings from West Yorkshire, UK

How beautiful this is Pam - all snowed up with nowhere to go!

It is so unusual for a snow-deprived southerner to see a familiar red postbox wearing a white cap and embraced by white frosty arms like that!

We still have quite a few of these metal boxes in South Africa, monuments to the time when SA was a British colony 50 years ago. There is one just a short walk from where we live, where I post letters too - but it NEVER has/will be covered in snow!!!

Warm wishes, Hazel - Cape Town

Thanks, Hazel, it all did look so pretty for the whole month that it lay and I really enjoyed being snowed-in, no cars passing down the lane was just bliss!

My postman took some amazing shots as he was able (with his snow chains) to get to everyone in the far flung places up in the hills - so take a look at his flickr pics

A sprinkling is due today ;-)

Hello K.Jayakumar P Menon and thanks for your visit and your comment. It's a neat little postbox isn't it! And looks very cosy under its fluffy blanket!
