Snow Day

I should preface this by saying that residents of Canada and North America might want to look away now.  If not, you should make sure that you are sitting down somewhere very safe that you cannot fall off.

The reason?

I am about to show you our snow.

The sum total of the snow that we have had so far.

It isn't 30 inches.

It probably isn't more than an inch.

But, it is the only snow that we have had so far.

And I really need a blog post.

About something that isn't related to losing all my stuff.

So don't start laughing at this tiny little bit of white stuff that wouldn't even make you give a second glance.

If you do laugh, please don't fall of your chair while you are doing it...  I don't want to be the cause of any injuries!!!

Of course, I really do not need this darned snow.  Even this little tiny bit.  We live on a big hill and getting off the hill is tricky.  I need to get groceries and run errands.  Isn't that always the way!  Our roads do not get ploughed and cleared like they do in some parts of the world, so the roads get slippy and icy very quickly.  Oh well.  I hope that it will melt very soon and then we can get back to normal.

Hubby has gone to the dentist for his checkup this morning and just called to say that once you get out of our road it isn't too bad, so I am going to go out now while it is alright in case we get any more.

Looks very cold though!!

So, here is the summary of my snowy pictures from the last few days.

First of all the teeny tiny little bit we had on Thursday.






Then the dusting we had on Saturday.






Finally, the "big" snow we had today!











I hope that you are recovered from any laughter related injuries sustained whilst reading this post.

Stay safe and warm in your own snowy conditions won't you.

Amy

  1. Everything is relative, isn't it? Your snowfall is probably nothing compared to North Americans, but it is if you live in England! I grew up with those big snowfalls, and when it snowed here in late December, it felt like home.

    Stay warm and cozy!

  2. Much the same here, Amy...which is surprising for Cornwall.

  3. hehehe gotta love a bit of British snow excitement lol. We've got a bit more than you in Bedfordshire but it's not much more than a couple of inches at most

  4. Not so much as a flake here. You definitely have enough for the odd snowball. Stay warm and safe Amy. CJ xx

  5. So funny! We are so alike- I've just done exactly the same thing on my blog and all the time I was writing it I was thinking this will look utterly pitiful if it's being read in America or Canada. Still, we have SNOW!!!! HOORAY!!!! xx

  6. Great post, love the snow!, we have not had that much,xx

  7. As I hail from Norway but live here in the UK you wouldn't think I would be at all excited. But excited I am. I miss the snow and when once I may have snubbed this "dusting" now I am grateful for it. After the children left for school I played in the snow in the garden, all by myself!! I too will be blogging later today about it ;) keep warm and safe Amy x

  8. Very funny! You have had far more snow than me though, there are absolutely 0 amount of flakes here!

  9. This did make me smile Amy! I was in the garden on Sunday and it was beautiful blue sky then from nowhere came these lovely big flakes of snow. They didn't stick, they disappeared as soon as they hit the ground, but to be standing outside in it was magical! At least we're not all suffering from slushy pavements! Jane x

  10. It's so silly isn't it that we make such a big fuss the moment we see snow falling, when like you say in other countries they get so much more. Still it's just as scary when you are driving through it or trying negotiate getting to the end of the path without falling over. Still Spring will soon be here.

  11. Looks about the same amount as we got here in N. Ireland. It's away now but this morning we have a very hard frost. Shivvvverring!
    Stay warm!

  12. I can relate to this too. Ours resembles sieved icing sugar!!

  13. No laughing here. It all depends on what you are used to! You got some pretty pictures.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Whilst it al looks quite pretty I does make me feel cold. It was reported we may have some of the white stuff by Friday down to 200ft which would include us, but then they forecast all sorts and nothing happens, we shall see. Take care on your venturing out xcx

  15. LOL! Well, it's a LOT more snow than we've gotten, Amy! hee hee. blessings ~ tanna

  16. We got more snow than that but not a lot more. But we have a similar situation with getting the roads cleared. Main roads are ok once you can make your way to them.

  17. Well you've got load more than we have at the Summerhouse it keep falling and just melting really disappointing, I even resorted to singing a song about snow at Folk Club last night in the vain hope we might get some, it's been snowing on and off all morning but it's just not laying :( keep safe and warm.

  18. Joking aside, do be careful as a thin layer of snow ices over and it can cause some nasty injuries. It's sunny here today, the first blue sky I've seen for ages.

  19. Well, being from New York, I'm trying not to laugh! :) Honestly though, again being from New York, I also know that a little dusting of snow like this can be just as slippery to drive in as inches & inches of snow. (We added 14 inches of snow yesterday to what we already had.) Anyway, be safe and I'm sure it'll melt away in no time!

    ReplyDelete
  20. a little snow always makes things pretty I think-we still have had no snow at all here so far

    ReplyDelete
  21. Dear Amy
    I love looking at the snow when you are inside and don't have to go anywhere, but I definitely don't like it when you do! We have a covering here too - enough to be slippery. Bother!
    Best wishes
    Ellie

  22. You should be very proud of your snowfall Amy! We're all spoiled here with excellent snow removal equipment, both at home and on city streets. I don't think it's quite yet time to put chains on your tires yet though! I'd rather drive in deep snow than on a little bit that can easily turn icy. Drive safe!! Wendy x

  23. Amy, you always make me chuckle. I think my parents would call this a "skift" of snow (not sure what that means). The first ones almost look like a frost, but it has accumulated a bit. Stay warm.

  24. Hehehehehehehe! Hahahahahahaha
    Snigger snigger...snort.

    1. I'm with you Jane!
      Hahaha!
      Sorry Amy...but you really must visit me...and see what real snow looks like!
      All kidding aside...when you are not used to, or prepared for...it can be a slippery predicament!
      Stay safe on your drive!
      I am also venturing out...with MY car...ooops...will probably slide!
      Enjoy your day!
      Cheers!
      Linda :o)

  25. We still have lumps and bumps of white over the garden, mostly where we left piles of snow we had cleared. Like you we live on a hill and our road is never gritted, it gets like an ice rink at times but once you get off it the main roads are clear:)

    ReplyDelete
  26. We haven't any snow in Winwick at the moment, but I'm pleased that you've had some at last! xx

    ReplyDelete
  27. We are about the same as you, just a sprinkling and as normal no grit/sand to be seen.

    ReplyDelete
  28. I love it on those rare occasions when we get enough to make a snowman, but the excitement is usually short-lived when it freezes over and I can't go out the door without falling over! Enjoy your snow 'flurry' while it lasts Amy and have a good week.

  29. You might find this hard to believe coming from a Canadian, but that's the same amount of snow we've had this winter in my little corner of the country. No laughter coming from me!

    ReplyDelete
  30. A little dusting always makes everything look fresh. Enjoy it while it lasts.

    ReplyDelete
  31. I'll bet it looked pretty while it was coming down.

    A few weeks ago there was a bit of snow flurry in Jacksonville, Florida. I had been there the week before. I was so disappointed that I missed the snow. :-(

    Hope you get all your errands done without incident and then can go home and enjoy a nice hot cup of tea.

  32. We had our first snow today and by coincidence I had a dentist appointment so I just had to go out. There is a lot more snow due tomorrow and I can stay indoors for that.

    ReplyDelete
  33. This is a like a good snow have to be, not so much but enough!!Look really pretty Amy!
    You can sit by a while and knitt!!

  34. We have had a bit more than you but it disappeared fairly quickly. But seeing as it is a rare occurrence you have to have the camera at the ready - the blog post demands it.

    ReplyDelete
  35. We haven't had any here where I live in Texas. Boo-hoo! I love snow!

    ReplyDelete
  36. I am not laughing...
    At least you have a white-ish view in your garden...
    This morning, I counted about 5 things falling from the sky, things that wanted to be snowflakes, but changed their mind half-way down and safely turned into raindrops. Pfff.
    ;-)

  37. Ha-ha! Well, I prefer the first few pictures. Just a tiny bit of snow is about all I can handle. I don't like cold at all. Take care, be safe, stay warm. Tammy

  38. I wish we had that much snow. So far we've only gotten a couple days of it. It doesn't look like we'll be getting anymore soon, since temperatures will be in the high 60s all week. At least that means I can get some outside painting done :)

    ReplyDelete
  39. Hi Amy. I have had the same at my home in Cornwall. To get out of our village is all hills and just the smallest amount of snow or ice we are stuck.....Dogs loved it. So will be showing in a post soon. Keep warm and safe.

  40. I loved seeing your snow and the photos. I love snow in all shapes and forms. So yours is beautiful to me :)

    ReplyDelete
  41. Well, it's better than no snow at all. But what we have here in the north east definitely trumps what you have there!

    ReplyDelete
  42. Ok dear Amy - I'm only partially laughing as we've really had a "wimpy" amount of snow this winter, so I really can't judge. However, if this had been last winter I would have been laughing so hard I would have been sent to the emergency room. Lol
    God bless sweet Lady. xo

    ReplyDelete
  43. Still more than we've had.
    Well Jel!

    ReplyDelete
  44. Hehe... I'm not laughing! It doesn't take a lot of snow to transform a dull, grey wintry scene into something magical, and you don't need a huge amount to have fun in it!

    ReplyDelete
  45. Even if it isn't much it still looks cold. Glad I am in summer!!

  46. Nothing here in Brighton, but we are protected by the downs and a lot of the bad weather seems to pass us by, thank goodness.

  47. We had about the same amount here this morning and I was ridiculously excited. Of course, it all went by mid-morning but it looked so pretty first thing. I hope your roads weren't too bad. We used to live on a hill and our road was always a nightmare. x

    ReplyDelete
  48. Lol... for us that's quite a covering isn't it! Keep warm and I hope the snow doesn't stop you getting out and about xx

    ReplyDelete
  49. The snow makes everything look all pretty doesn't it? Not so much fun to walk in mind you! You have more snow than us here in the West coast of Scotland - we have had none at all!

  50. For us in Britain, that's enough to stop trains! LOL Keep warm and cosy, Amy. :o)

  51. Dear Amy, I didn't fall off my chair but I did chuckle before I even got to the photos. My hubby's cousin in England shared a photo similar to your garden photos today so I was prepared, so to speak. I'm sure the streets would be very slippery as you don't have snow or winter tires. I am happy that you got a 'dusting' of snow though. It looks pretty and I'd rather have that than 50 inches on the ground that we got the past week.

    ReplyDelete
  52. Well, you sure do have a sense of humor, I will say that much! You know that here in the States - especially one where we get a lot of snow in the winter - that we are used to driving in the snow and icy roads. I just posted some pics of the storm we got the other day - over a foot! And now it's snow again...we're supposed to get another 3". Spring can't come soon enough!

    ReplyDelete
  53. The snow looks very pretty Amy. Funny to see pictures of the cold while I am sitting here in Australia sweating!

    ReplyDelete
  54. Well, that is way more than I put on my post last winter, though Ballarat had not had snow in nearly 30 years, so I suppose we were lucky to be able to photograph it at all. Enjoyed seeing your snow pics. Take care

    ReplyDelete
  55. Haha! I am laughing because we are sweltering hot here and I could do with some!

    ReplyDelete
  56. You are so cute buddy!! Snow is snow and your dusting is beautiful!!! Such stunning photos of your town!!! I hope all the computer stuff is going ok....you take care and have a great day tomorrow!! Nicole xoxo

  57. It is sure pretty when it snows, everything looks like a fairy world. We are getting tired if ice and snow here, it's not super cold just sloppy and mucky. Still having a chuckle about your post though!! Oh my! Come visit us in the winter!

    ReplyDelete
  58. Well if you're not used to it then that would seem like a lot. We've gotten so much snow this winter here in the states. It's been a rough Winter. Really looking forward to Spring.
