Ob Snow

OK, so my friendslist this morning consists of dozens of posts saying 'look! Snow!' with the odd picture of a cat looking disdainfully at the snow, and the occasional person saying 'huh, soft southerners, call that snow? And there's no snow here'.

But I think we should put this into perspective. Jonathan is 7, Marianne is 11, and this is the first time in their entire lives that we've had enough snow on a non-school morning to build a snowman. Marianne isn't even here: she's off at Guide camp (fortunately in huts not tents ha ha). We didn't pack hat, scarf or gloves; it is, after all, April. Collapse )
