You know how snow sort of captures and magnifies any available light? When I woke up yesterday morning (before dawn), I knew it had snowed just by the way the streetlights were reflecting through the obscured glass at the top of the stairs. Okay that and the weather forecast, but I never completely trust snow predictions as I've seen snow less than a dozen times in my life. Ironically, it's snowed here every winter since I was pregnant with JB1 (that's four winters and counting). We had around 4 inches in Bristol. JB1 and I went out and built the compulsory snowman and filled up his beach bucket, but he got bored after half an hour and came in for hot chocolate and an apple (odd combination, but that's toddlers for you!).
I seem to have taken virtually the same 'snowy garden' picture for the last few years!
