Well, they called it the mini-beast-from-the-East. While it wasn’t as bad as the first one, we still had a lot of snow – pretty snow, everywhere you looked it was covered in white. It gave the light a weird, eerie but beautiful and unusual glow. Sometimes, it looked more like silver and not white. T loved it of course, by Monday though we (not my little girl) were all a bit fed up with this winter wonderland and wanted it to be Spring.
When you’re little though, snow is still fun and magical, especially when it happens so rarely in the place where you live. As I’ve mentioned in the past, it never really snows here in Cornwall, we usually get blasted by heavy wind, not blizzards, so when it happens, it’s the kids who really enjoy it, not the adults, although admittedly, we did have some fun too, even Doc did!
Snow fights, making snow angels, sledding, or just trying to slide down a snowy hill, is so much fun, if you’re a little child like T, especially if your school announces a free day, what’s not to like?
On the third snowy day though, we were just a little bit fed up with it. I’m wondering how people manage in colder countries where snow is but the norm? I guess, you do just get used to it – as for the rest of us, we’re really not equipped for snow, when it happens, everything slows down just a bit which to be fair isn’t really a bad thing. But really, snow in March? I pity the daffodils that were squashed by the snow, I think they were a bit confused too. Who wasn’t?
Even Doc seemed fed up with snow too. Thank goodness, it’s all gone now. Spring I think is finally here.
Incidentally, apologies if you’ve been trying to access this little space of mine. I’ve been offline for a few days due to problems with my domain. But all is sorted now thanks to good friends of ours who happen to be web developers. If not for them, I’d be thinking of quitting blogging so if you guys are in need of a good team you can trust, do check them out here. I owe them big time.
