Snow moon or Full Snow moon is a traditional name for the full moon that occurs in February in North America. Usually this month is a time for snow and cold air temperatures, and this is the reason for the name snow moon. Storm moon, hunger moon, Little Famine moon, and Full Bony moon are other traditional names for this particular full moon (Wikepedia)

Today I took some boxes of food and bottled water to a collection point in Yeovil to help towards supplying the victims of the flooding on the Somerset levels. I just cannot even begin to imagine how these people feel, losing their homes, belongings, animals, crops - everything. I wish I could do more.  A huge network of help has sprung up over the last week or so, mainly due to the possibilities offered by the internet - Facebook, Twitter, e-mails, and mobile phones. I hope that's some comfort to the poor people of Somerset.
