Snow Day!

Monday, 11 December 2017

It's been a weird weekend. Living on the side of a mountain we get quite a few snow warnings during the winter, with most being completely false and the others lasting all of a few hours over night and by the time I wake up it all being slush. So when I saw we were expecting snow this weekend I didn't bother changing plans as I didn't feel like there was a big chance of it creating much commotion. 

Saturday we woke up to snow but, other than my street which nobody had bothered gritting, most roads were ok. My dad came up in his 4X4 and took me to work as there was no way the car was getting down my hill, but most people were able to get on with their days as normal. I even managed to get to the top of the mountain to get some photos of the valleys before it melted away too much. 

What I didn't expect was to wake up Sunday morning with a whole new pile of snow having fallen and what had started melting from the day before being frozen underneath. My Facebook feed was filled with kids enjoying their first glimpse of a real snow day, after us not seeing a good covering in a few years. It was great to see everyone out enjoying it instead of it ruining most peoples normal working days. 

I was dubious about taking Pugsey out in it, as I didn't want his little paws being too cold. He kept his coat on for all of 10 seconds and as soon as it was off he was running around, loving jumping in and out of the piles of snow. We didn't leave him out too long though and enjoyed a proper snow day in, watching Christmas films and eating junk with Pugsey curled up on my lap.

Did you get any snow? What did you do with your weekend?

  1. I feel like I must be the only person in Wales who didn't get snow! We had two mad flurries of it for ten minutes and none of it even stuck! Pugsley looks magnificent in the snow!
