Snow Day

Emily's school is closed for a Snow Day today. It's the first time any of my children have had a Snow day and, as you can imagine, she is really excited. To give her her due, she had been dressed and ready to go when it was announced on the local radio that the school was closed. We've had about 3" so far and it's just starting to come down again. I know for a lot of the people who read this, 3" isn't that much snow but it is quite exciting for us ;o) It'll be interesting to see how much we get today - on top of what's already lying. The children in our road have already been out sledding and I'm sure there will be snowmen on the green later on. All good fun and a good excuse for a blobby day! This was Claire and her friend, Tom, before they walked into town for lunch yesterday. The snow had only just started and wasn't lying at that stage. It was still cold though!
Taken this morning at about 7am - still quite dark out.
Same scene taken around 9am and from a slightly different angle.

Have a lovely day
