School now cancelled for the day...had to hit the road and 'rescue' the girls from school. Roads had become treacherous but beautiful. Local radio was now all about accidents, road and school closures.
The patio table and ruler method of measuring snowfall was mentioned...I had no idea what this meant...until I arrived home to a patio table covered with a white cushion of snow... I grabbed a ruler..nearly 10cm...now I get it!!!
Our street became a playground, snowball fights and sled rides...the neighbours thought we were mad! One lovely neighbour ventured out...to take photos of us crazy Aussies playing in the snow!
The dog loved catching snowballs!
We tried to build a snowman but the snow was like sand and wouldn't stick...so we ended up with a snow blob!
Our walk to the field became a magical walk to a white wonderland.
Was so excited to spot a Robin on the snow covered branches!
Our field was covered in white, so serene and beautiful.
Until we started a snowball extravaganza, all serenity gone as we ducked and dived, aimed and threw, laughed and played.
We giggled, loved walking in the snow, tried to catch snowflakes on our tongues, stopped to make a few snow angels and went for a walk in the village.
The village looked like it was coated in icing sugar, so beautiful!
Simple things taking on magical qualities. We may have stopped at that pub for a warming ale!
