The forecasts were correct! We woke up this morning to a magical blanket of white, and it has transformed the city. The university is closed, the buses aren't running - it's a city wide snow day! I'm ridiculously excited. I haven't seen proper fluffy, crunchy, thick snow like this since before my family moved to Cornwall in 2005. I'm not sure whether it's the sea salt in the air or something else entirely, but it never snows properly there. Sometimes there's the odd token dusting, but not like this. Sure enough, I called my family this morning and they confirmed that they had no snow, just gale force winds and heavy rain.
Since it's been near a decade since I've woken up to snow like this, please excuse the punny title. I feel like I'm ten years old again, and I just wanted to have a bit of fun with this post! The moment we were up, showered and dressed, Grant and I piled out into the garden, making snowballs, catching snowflakes and generally acting like big kids. When our toes began to go numb we sloped back inside for hot chocolates loaded with whipped cream and marshmallows. Ready for round two, we decided to go for a walk around the neighbourhood, curious to see how it looked under a thick layer of snow. It's just incredible, it looks like a Christmas cake that's been dolloped with royal icing. Children, freed from a day at school, were running around with armfuls of snow and plastic sleds - they looked how I felt on the inside!
To my UK readers, have you had a snow day today? If so, how have you been spending it? To international readers, how often (if at all) does it snow where you live, and how do you spend snowy days?
