Three Inches of Snow!




Ha! After my careless prediction on the previous post last week - it snows!!! "More snow than we have ever seen before" my boys assured me solemnly before donning their peruvian hats and flying outside to play not snowballs, but frisbee. Ah!

After this forecasting coup, I am turning my attention to the National Lottery. I don't want a million, that would be a burden, I'd have to give most of it away. Just a little win would be good.

They've dropped the frisbee now and are having the snowball fight of the century, refereed by the three year old, anxiously through the window... Sigh, I'll have to go and join them!

ah, you stole those photos off my blog, didn't you??
we have had a cold winter and a very snowy spring.

yesterday it was balmy and i wore sandals. today it will rain. and mid-week, more snow.

what a reluctant spring this has been. but the snowball fight sounds fun.

Those Peruvian hats are wearing well. Love your snow photo. We only got a smattering - not even enough for a snowball. This lot were most disappointed.

Mean Mom said...

We had snow, too. Yay! I didn't fall over and break a limb, either. Glad you had fun.

Please come to my tea party and pick up an award. Hope you can make it!

Lovely snow photos, Merry! Is that your garden we can see....?

But what a Spring, eh! And now they tell us we are to have a sub-tropical kind of summer. Bet there will still be water restrictions, for all that - some things in life can always be safely predicted.

Yes, they are much the same Laurie! It was all gone by the evening and today is damp but sunny. The snowballing was good!

Hi Mother of this Lot - only a smattering? Ah, shame!

Thanks for the award Mean Mom - I'm chuffed, love chattering!

Hello Bea - yes it's my garden. It looks better in white! Humid summer? Oh no! Coming to see if you've posted at all.....:)

OK Aims - it's a deal! Am meditating now...

Hi Dusty Spider - thanks for coming by. I love your name btw. Reading your blog, I'm certain you're not dusty at all :)

I absolutely detest snow!! I dread the flakes falling and try my best not to look out of the window. We should be enjoying sunshine now and the feeling of lightweight clothes against the skin. As it happens, I'm still in thermals!!

WE had snow too. Too much weird weather happening. Roll on a summer without torrential rain this year I hope.

Hi Crystal - ah, so you're a warm sunshine girl :)

Hello MOB - weird weather indeed, I don't know about you but I'm glad we live on a hill away from flooding.

Thanks MOTL, that's nice, I'll come over...

Maggie May said...

More snow! Think that's the end of it now! Surely?????

Dusty Spider said...

Hiya, I've a different tag for you over at my place. Flick x

merry weather said...

Hi Maggie - I do hope so. I've stopped forecasting for now, having failed to predict the lottery numbers 4 times!

Thanks Flick, very nice of you :)
