So the UK has been hit with a lot of snow lately. I say a lot, but it is more like ankle deep. In comparison to other parts of the world this snowfall is just the average day, but in the United Kingdom it is more of a rarity. Especially when the snow lasts for more than a few hours. So many schools close, as half the country has has no idea what to do when the weather changes, which is so funny.
There is more of this weather predicted tomorrow, so I look forward to waking up in the morning to see what the scenery around looks like. But I decided to make the most of the beautiful weather today and explored a local forest and canal by my house. So here are some of the photos I took on my walk this morning..
It has been so long since there has been decent snowfall in my area. You will always see snow it Scotland and the highest peaks in Wales which are always stunning to see. But, it’s not so common in cities. Especially in the Birmingham area so I was delighted to see the snow on Friday morning. Whenever I had to go to school on snow days, we were always ushered into the building and was told to stay inside. It was always such a shame not to spent time outside in the snow.
There has been many fond memories over the years with me playing in the snow. The one year a snowman wasn’t good enough so I tried to make a snow horse. It didn’t go very well but at least it was original. There has been plenty of Snow Angels over the years, and of course the odd snow ball fight.
You know when your fingers and toes cannot feel anything and you are soaked to the bone you had a great time in the snow. Then when you get cosy in a warm house you get that tingling sensation back in your limbs as you warm back up. Hot chocolate, cosy blankets and snow make up the perfect December for me.
For the longest amount of time, I have always asked for a White Christmas. Even a little bit of snow would make me happy. So hopefully for the first time in my life, I might get to see snow on Christmas Day.
What is your fondest memory of playing in snow as a child? Do you experience snow often where you live, if so have you seen any this year?
