Today, we had a dusting of snow on our way to school. It had been snowing overnight and had settled enough for both children to be very excited in the morning. Floppy was not so thrilled by the garden being covered though and started shaking when she saw it. As she is quite young and we didn’t see any snow last year, Floppy couldn’t work out what it was so was worried by it.
H walked to drop S off at school today, knocking the snow off railings as she went. Both children were shuffling their feet through the snow as they went as well as comparing the footprints that they had just made. I ensured that we all left for school a little earlier today so that they could enjoy and appreciate the snow.
It is the most snow we have seen here in a couple of years even though there was really only quite a light dusting. I’m not sure that there will be any left this evening though as it is melting quite quickly.
I have read that in other areas of the country, some have witnessed thunder and lighting with the snow and others even experienced an earthquake. We had several power cuts after 10.30pm so I don’t know if these were because of the earthquake or because of the snow. Either way, it was bright enough outside not to affect us too much.
Were you affected by the earthquake? Or the snow? Did you see any snow on your school run this morning?
