Waking up this morning and there’s snow gently falling, but it’s too little, too late really. Last night on the way home from school there was talk of snow and the clouds above even looked heavy with it. I looked out of the window at bedtime though and there was no sign of the white stuff. This morning there was snow gently drifting down through the air. It was sticking, but there was barely a covering on the ground and with rush hour about to begin, it was unlikely to cause any travel problems. There was no way that J’s headteacher was going to declare the school closed. We will be carrying on our normal way today and there doesn’t seem much prospect of sledging. We have a lot less snow than the picture above which I took a few weeks back when we had a decent load come down.
I expect though there will be some fun to be had on the way to school. I’m expecting some attempts at snow balls and I would be very surprised if we get to school without wet gloves, in fact I might take along a spare pair so that J has some dry ones for break time. I think there might me some writing or picture drawing in the snow on our car as that often happens even when we only have frost. What are your favourite things to do on the school run if there’s snow? Do you have any family traditions? We are drawing to the end of primary school, so I’m glad to take the opportunity to write about the things we do, so that they are recorded for the future. I’m sure snow balls and snow writing will form a part of secondary school life too, but I won’t be there to see it as he’ll be traveling to school without me.
