The snow started to fall at Bumble Bee Cottage at about 6.30am and it has been snowing on and off all morning. These photos were taken at 8.30am.
It would have to snow for quite a few hours to get enough to make a snowman but we are hopeful :)
This is the most snow we have had all week. There have been flurries blowing on the wind off and on for the past few days but nothing constant like this. The Bumble B'eers ended up having two days off school and went back yesterday, much to their disgust. We had a note home yesterday asking parents to check Islands FM on Monday morning to see if the schools will be closed again. It is a very novel concept, schools closing because of the weather. In Australia the only reason schools might close because of the weather is a cyclone or possibly a Bush Fire, something not likely to occur in this part of the world.
People in the UK would find our smattering of snow a bit of a joke after the BIG FREEZE they have been enduring over the last week, with temperatures plummeting below -22*C. All the same we are very excited here in Bumble Bee Cottage.
Come on your Easterly French Wind blow some more snow our way :P
