Usually we don’t get snow where we live, but it seems like each time we move home there will be heavy snow where we are during the first winter >.>
And so it was at the end of last week when “The Beast from the East” met storm Emma coming up from the South.
Tuesday saw the first of the snow falling, and although it was forecast I was surprised at just how much of it settled on the ground:
By the end of Wednesday it had pretty much all melted though :/
On Thursday it started coming down steadily during the afternoon, and I had to leave work a little early to make sure that I could get home ;>.>
By the time I got home everything was covered again, and with the wind pushing it the snow had started to form deeper drifts in places.
The snow and wind continued overnight, and by Friday morning things were decidedly buried outside ^_^;
My office closed for the day (my car was very stuck so I had no chance of making it to work anyway) so we were free to enjoy the snow ^^
We walked over to the nearby parkland, and were not surprised to see so many people having fun on the hill…….a shame we didn’t have our own sledge though :(
On Saturday a lot of the snow had melted, but thanks to the deep drifts we had in the garden and against the car; there was still plenty to build a snowman with ;P
The day before the snow had been too powdery, and it wouldn’t stick together, but now it was perfect for building with……we made the biggest snowman we’ve every done (at 6ft tall), and still had enough snow remaining to make a whole family of snowmen…..but the rain was starting, and so playtime in the snow had to end ^_^;
