The Beast from the Baltic… is no match for Emma!
The Beast brought icy winds and sub zero temperatures… and just about enough snow to make the Pond look like a massive Victoria sponge cake. But beneath this delicate dusting there was quite a respectable thickness of ice for a couple of nights’ work.
Emma brought a dainty little claw hammer… but she also brought a press photographer, her best sparkly hat, a purple bikini, and quite a lot of attitude.
I would offer to lend Emma my sledgehammer*, but I think she’s probably dangerous enough.
*For the record: I have never broken my way into a pond with it, I’ve only ever used it for bashing in posts, and it’s not really as useful as the lump hammer. A girl should own a range of hammers, just in case.
