Snow Day!

By Ourbabyblog @OurBabyBlogx
I really do love my little country, we are notoriously known for our incredible sense of humor when it comes to the weather, we are famous for the rain, and we know that, it's cool, so when we get a couple of flecks of snow, we can't contain our excitement. HOWEVER, in the space of a week, not only have we experienced a sodding Earthquake (4.2 on the richter scale i'll have you know), the house shook and everything (slightly, but still), but over the past few days, it SNOWED, and not just a little bit of snow, a RED LEVEL WARNING amount of snow, i'm talking blizzard conditions, calf deep, actually able to make a snowman or ten conditions! It's been wonderful!
So in true British style, the Memes have been out in full force, the shops have had stampedes of people bulk buying bread and milk just incase we end up having to stay indoors for the next 6 months, I even popped down to my local cafe yesterday for some chocolate cake and they were bloody closed! THIS is the sort of hysteria that is unnecessary if you ask me..
I won't lie, I really love the snow, I love it from a Photographers point of view, everywhere looks so beautiful and calm, pretty much every photo looks good too, I also love it from a parents point of view, Abbie is loving playing in it, she's singing all the snow songs known to man as she kicks the stuff everywhere, although she's not so keen on the sprays of snow the wind keeps throwing at her face, but we embrace the MAYHEM! She's wrapped up all snug and warm, resembling that of the Michelin Man once all layers are completed. All the kids on the street head out and have snowball fights and the parents get involved, which means I also finally get to finally meet said neighbours after only living here for 7 years..well done snow.
Just when I thought it couldn't get any better, there have been people in my town who have literally been skiing down the slopes and paths and having a jolly ol' time, strangers are talking to each other as they walk around, everyone chatting about the weather and so many people actually out playing in it, local facebook groups are offering 4x4 cars to help strangers get to work and even some offering hot food and drinks free of charge, I always feel a sense of community when it snows, it really is quite lovely!
I know the snow is a nuisance to some, and I understand, but for me, i'm enjoying the break from normality and taking in the extra day and a half i've had with Abbie being off school and we are enjoying ourselves!
I shall leave you with a couple of photos from the past few days, hope you've all had a great week and have a great weekend! :)
