First Snow – One Week

Winter started in a beautiful fresh crisp blue sky way, changed to a frosty winter wonderland, quickly followed by torrential rain and gale force wind.  Eventually though, came the snow.

Brilliant big flakes of proper snow.  The first winter snowfall had been disappointing, because it came from the south and east, by the time it reached us it was fine dusty and a bit wishy washy.  This stuff came from the North, straight down from the Artic and landed in a glorious dumping.

The girls got more and more excited, so snowsuits were donned, hats and gloves and out they went to make snow angels, sledge, build a snowman and refuse to come back inside despite the fact that they both had bright red noses and cheeks.

Eventually sheer exhaustion and the fact that the now falling snow began to turn to rain, drove them back indoors to thaw!  However, our littlest girl had a fabulous time in her first experience of snow.

  1. That’s such a lovely post… That first pic is what it usually looks like here in the winter! Ours doesn’t melt quite so quickly though… it’s still here! :/

  2. Fabulous!!!!! Look at that heavy snowfall – wicked! Your girls look like they are having loads and loads of fun. That snow fall is really thick. Is that your back yard – looks lovely!

    • Thanks Sarah and thanks for doing this again, it’s great fun. That’s our front garden, our house sits right back from the road, it was once upon a time a working farm, so the back is a farmyard with the barn and a couple of stables, but the front is almost an acre. It was one of the big deciding factors when we were house hunting. Now we have the girls, I’m really glad we made that decision. It’s blooming hard work though!

  3. Wow, that’s quite some snowfall. Looks almost like Switzerland. I’m not really a snow person but I can see me being forced in to snow angels and snowmen building when my boys are older.

    • I don’t mind a day or two of snow, some years we end up snowed in for about a week. Thankfully this year, it only lasted until the torrential rain that afternoon!
