How much and when, that’s what we want to know.
Snow is forecast for tomorrow, but I have one request of the snow clouds, could they please dump their load during the night so that we don’t have the usual palaver in the morning before the school run, all the questions, all the unknowns; Is there just too much snow, so there is no point even setting out? can we get over the top road or will the snow have drifted?, can we get out of the lane?, will the snow plough have been on the squiggly road yet? do we take the lowland route and spend three hours in a traffic jam?
Of course when I was a kid we had real snow, proper deep snow and this is just what the boys are hoping for.
but I suspect that when I was a child that just as not every summer holiday was golden sunshine for six weeks, as I remember it( this is the only photo you will ever see of me in swim suit) nor was every winter waist deep in snow (or head height if your only three.) but the memory plays tricks, but I am sure there was more snow than there is nowadays and most of it went in my Wellington boots, but then again we walked to the village school and my boots weren’t very high.
