Especially as whole swathes of the country have it far worse than we do, not to mention other parts of the world.
But it really has been exceptional - nothing like it in the last 40 years in our area. I even had to dig the car out!
It reminds me very much of when I was a teenager back in Lancashire, trudging to school through snow which was as high as my welly boots.
No school closures for us back then. Miss Muffett has been at home most of the week, Nipper's nursery is closed and Mr Earplugs has been working from home. They are driving me nuts and I can't wait for a return to normal so I can enjoy nice quiet mornings with Tiddler again.
They have had lots of fun in the snow though. Miss Muffett has a sore bum from sledging down the hill on a biscuit tin lid and Nipper and Mr Earplugs were attempting to build an igloo. As fast as Mr Earplugs was building it Nipper was coming along and trashing it!
Just look at my poor Lilac though.
It had reached 'tree' proportions but the snow bent it double and it has snapped. On seeing this I got out there with a big stick and bashed all the snow off my Damson, the curly Willow and the Apple as I don't want to lose them too.
I hope it clears up soon - I've got a new shed coming and I really don't fancy trying to put it up in these conditions!
