    Default So who got the snow

    We got a teeny tiny amount but seems to have brought the city to a standstill for cars.

    So make me jealous who can go sledging and make snowmen

    No snow. Very frosty earlier but glorious sunshine now but quite nippy.

    Just a sprinkling here so far but like you elmo causing chaos! We just don't know what to do with it do we! Glad it's not too bad, had a baby rabbit born here last night, just one so no litter mates to keep him warm and I am worried about him although he is in an insulated hutch with plenty of hay and mums fur and it's covered in a tarp. !

    We've had quite a lot of snow here in Lowestoft, but it isn't laying at all.
    So its lovely to watch but can't go sledging, build snowmen, have snow ball fights or make snow angels

    Stay warm everyone x x

    Oooo, stay warm little bunny.

    We had snow all day yesterday, but it didn't really settle ... ground just too wet. Snow up on the moors.
    Cold and clear overnight, frost this morning but bright, clear and sunny today.

    Would like snow-but we're away this weekend, so next week please!

    Beautiful sunshine here. But chilly, it's only 3.8 at the moment. We're not that far away from Lowestoft, can't believe the difference in weather!

    No snow here either but then we rarely get any.

    It was a very frosty morning at 1 degree on the school run.

    We haven't got snow but 20-30 minutes away, in the same city, there's snow about 5 inches deep!

    Quite glad we don't have any tbh

    It was supposed to have started snowing at 4pm but obviously it hasn't.

    They are now saying 8pm but I'm not getting my hopes up

    I'm wearing out the curtains by peeping out every few minutes.

    on the bright side, this does carry the promise of a certain frisson. The couple opposite have had an en suite fitted and, whilst they've frosted the glass, they still have a side-hinged window. The first one into the shower opens the window to clear the steam. The second one in sometimes forgets and toddles in their without their bathrobe.

    OK, it's a bit pervy, but there's not much else to do in this village.

    No snow, forcast snow and rain tonight so won't settle. On Friday there was deep snow 5 miles away and none here.

    A LO brought me a book: Magical Snow Garden, in anticipation. I hadn't seen this though I have got a couple of Tracey Corderoy books. It is a lovely story about a penguin called Wellington who wanted a flower garden but couldn't grow one in the snow so made one. Lots of UW talk followed - what do flowers need to grow and then we created pictures of his garden. Lots of opportunities could be completed from this story, but the art was off the cuff follow up, yhought of on the spot as I read it to them. I will continue with this story when she comes next week too so when I plan for her I will share anything that could be for everyone.

    We got snow enough to get the sledge out.

    Rugby is called off because of the frozen pitched so a morning sledging snowman building is on the cards.

    We have a fine dusting. It looks very soft and the road is almost clear so it won't be here for long. It looks beautiful when untouched.

    I went to bed at 2am (had been doing my SEF in peace) and it was snowing. DH was going to let me have a lie in but DD was having none of it. She had us all up and out at the crack of dawn having snowball fights. Yesterday we spent the afternoon in a particularly marshy part of the woods where we always go in this weather because there are lots of huge iced over puddles. DD spent ages cracking the puddles. It was awesome.

    DD brought home a non fiction reading book about penguins on Friday and so perfect for this weather. We set up a big small world scene and froze ice in different shapes. Did anyone see the gorgeous penguin documentary over Christmas? I think Kate Winslet did the commentary. I missed it and was annoyed, but I would love to find it and watch it today.

    I've not read that story Floradora. It looks wonderful. We're going to snuggle up with our Winter stories in a bit.
