This afternoon saw the clouds starting to build up. The weathermen have been warning of snow today and I wondered if we were going to see some a bit earlier than they predicted.
It held off until a little while ago. I went through to make myself a cup of tea and looked out the window to see the snow falling in the lamp light. The patio had already started to cover over then and it hasn't stopped snowing since. We've probably got about an inch on the patio now.
I know it looks more like rain but it is actually snow. The snow flakes are bigger now and it's settling nicely. Much as I love the look of snow, I do like to know all my children are home safe. Hugh, unfortunately, is supposed to be working till 10pm tonight and has about a 15 minute drive. I'll be glad when he's home safe and sound. I know he's a safe driver but I still don't like him driving in these conditions :o(
On a slightly brighter note, Emily and I are hoping the snow does continue overnight so that it's thick enough that she doesn't have to go to school and we can have a lie in in the morning ;o). I'll let you know if we're lucky enough to have that happen. You never know as they have warned that the south of England could get up to 16"s of snow (not that I expect we'll get that much!).
I hope you are all somewhere nice and cosy and that your loved ones are safe and sound, wherever you may be.
