On Friday we woke to snow falling, but not enough to get school cancelled. So off the kids went and down fell more snow. By 10.30 the we had had about 2 inches and they decided to shut the school! So out went my husband in swirling snow to get the kids! We had a couple of more inches that afternoon and the area ground to a halt. The kids had a great time building snowmen in the garden. Sunday had light snow all day and school was due to resume on Monday but with a staggered late start.
Next the school boilers broke down, so they cancelled school for years 7 – 10 but made the year 11 go in because they have exams this week. So I have 1 happy child and 1 grumpy child. When we try to leave for school, my car won’t start, so we have to have a quick route march over fields, and housing estates on a route which we made up as we went along. We arrived at school only 10 minutes late.
Oh the joys of the snow!
Now awaiting my lovely Dad to come and help get my car started, as I really could do with getting in some more food, as there is more snow forecast for later in the day.
