Our weather men and women forecast snow for the weekend. Excitement reached fever pitch in this house as the girls had coats, scarves, gloves and wellies at the ready. We fell asleep on Friday night, fingers crossed for snow, even if only for a few hours.
But snow is a very rare occurrence in this part of the country – I think we are too close to the coast. Even in the very bad winters of 2010/2011 when the rest of the county was covered in snow, we only got a few flakes that melted and froze almost immediately to a nice slippery finish.
Unfortunately, the snow didn’t reach us this week either.
The girls were very disappointed, as was I. In my head I had already taken lots of seasonal snow photos with my camera.
Not only did we not get snow, we got more rain to make sure everything was even more wet and soggy!
Not to be outdone, I ventured into the back garden with my camera, between rain showers, and guess what I discovered? Who needs snow? Its overrated.
Spring has sprung! Woo hoo!!
