Snow Day

Yesterday I crossed my fingers for snow, not enough to cause destruction, but enough to cause a day off work. I wasn't completely surprised to wake this morning and find a blanket of snow covering everything, it had been forecast over a week ago; but the forecasters don't always get it right, do they?
I have a policy of not driving in these conditions if I can help it and called upon the services of The HoF who lives close to me. I was hoping that he would take my suggestion to call work and say we couldn't get in, but he insisted on picking me up and driving in. To cut a long story short, we didn't make it very far; driving at two miles per hour in thick snow seemed to help him make sense of the situation. I was back home and playing in the snow in no time. At about the same time I discovered that my school had been shut and I needn't have bothered trying to get there in the first place!
Me and my Sons had a snowball fight and built a snowman, although I was only able to stay outside for periods of ten minutes before needing to defrost myself inside. Our efforts were rewarded when we found out that our respective schools will be closed tomorrow too. Just what are we going to do!

Fun fun!

There was a piece on the snow in the UK on the news this morning. They said it wasn't worth the investment in snow plows "like a normal country." LOL!

Keeping very warm now, but we had a great deal of fun!

@Brunsli, aren't we a funny little island. We can't afford the investment in these vehicles, but we can afford the loss to industry that the country being at a standstill for two days causes!

@Sunsail, it doesn't snow as much as it used to. We get the odd flurry every now and then, but not many big storms.
