School Run Colours 29th January 2015

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.

Look Mum, Snow!
Look Mum, Snow!

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.

Can we go to school now, Mum?

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?

  • There’s something so exciting about snow, no matter how little there is. Can’t wait for some to arrive here!

  • Emma Smith

    We’re still waiting for a decent snow fall 🙁 Wish we could get enough to play in.

  • We’ve got so much snow here – but only in the last hour!! x

  • Phoebe Thomas

    Even a little sprinkling like this is fun, lucky you!

  • Mummy_Mimi

    Wow my girls would be sooooo jealous if they saw this. Amelie has been going on and on and on about how it’s going to snow here but I think she may be dissapointed. We live right on the south east coast and somehow I am just not sure we are going to get any this week. Your daughter has such lovely curly hair. I was hoping my girls would inherit my curls but they both seem to be loosing then now they are getting bigger. Have fun and enjoy the snow. x

  • We haven’t had one drop of snow. My daughter is dying for it to snow. We haven’t had any in two years so my son doesn’t really understand what snow is (he’s 2 1/2).

  • We have had snow I am not a fan but my kids love it!

  • we’re still waiting for our snow!

    We have had no snow in Birmingham other than a little shower that disappeared as quickly as it started. I’m not a fan of snow though so not too disappointed, although would be nice for the kids x

    We have hardly had any snow in our area for the last two years! I hope we get some soon as I would love to see the joy in my kids face when we step out and try to build a snowman.

    Can’t believe how close you are and we have had pretty much nothing – a few big flakes but nothing settled! It’s always great fun for little one’s isn’t it, F insisted on walking in the ‘snow’ today!

  • I love how fascinating little ones find snow , we have had lots of snow in the last couple of weeks x

  • We have just had slush on our school run but are hopeful for some snow that sticks overnight!

  • Sadly no snow at all here for me, rarely is on my bit of the south coast! I’m jealous!

  • Charlotte

    No snow. No earthquake. No nothing. We seem to live in an area of perpetual grey skies and not much else! Booo

  • We have had no snow, so the kids are planning on moving to Scotland!

  • We didn’t feel the earthquake but the powercuts were crazy. Ours was out for a couple of hours! Abby was like H. She’s not really seen it before and all she could say was “oh ho!”

  • Snow isn’t generally something we’re short of here in Canada, but it’s been slow coming this year – a couple of dumpings in December but nothing else until just the other day when I took the toboggan to school pick-up. At least in the UK the grass stays green. Here the -20 temps turn everything a lifeless brown so we really need the snow to brighten things up. In the four years since we moved here from England, this is the first winter where we’ve seen the ground between the months of December and March.

    Aw the look on their faces when they see the snow out of the window x

    There’s something so magical about snow, especially for children! The look on your daughter’s face says it all. We don’t have much snow in this country so I always want to capture the moment, just as you have done. Fingers crossed we get some snow today.

    Thanks so much for linking up to #MyCapturedMoment xxx

  • Sara-Jayne Jones

    No snow here in Hampshire thus far – but I am still hoping!

  • beautykinguk

    The snow has yet to hit London, whether it does or not, I don’t think so.

  • Globalmouse

    We have had about 5 flakes of snow!! My three are desperate for more!

  • Kara

    *cries* still no snow here and the kids are DESPERATE for the white stuff

    Snow is so much fun. We had a fair bit this year, the first time in about 3 years. Looks like your little ones enjoyed the powdery stuff! Thanks for linking up with #SchoolRunColours

  • Merlinda Little

    I have been wishing for snow! But I think this is the time to give up. So much fun for the kids to play on them =)
