Snow Day!

Yesterday we woke to snow to sea level here. As we're fairly close to sea level that meant we actually got some at our house. :) The kids were pretty excited as school was cancelled - which was good because there was no way we could get the car out of the driveway and no buses were running. Instead the kids put the drive slope to good use and had a great time sliding down on old skateboard decks. Then it was down the road for a snowball fight at the park.


This may look like a pathetic amount of snow to some, but for us it's a big deal as normally it's the hill suburbs who have all the fun. Snow this low, that actually settles, only happens maybe once or twice a year at the most.




It snowed on and off for most of the day -



Luckily we didn't have to go anywhere. DH kept in touch with work by phone, not that many others had managed to get in. Fortunately, my exam wasn't until today or I'd have had a problem because the University doesn't cancel exams.

Speaking of which -my last exam was today so I'm free for a few weeks - yippee!

Hey! Your yard looked just like ours! We must be at the same elevation :-)

I remember as a child once seeing snow settled on St Clair and St Kilda beaches. THAT was a heavy fall!

Hopefully now your exams are over we can meet up IN PERSON. I'll bring the "Hello my name is...." labels ;-)

Keely, it's always amusing to me to see it's winter where you live and summer in my neck of the woods. Although where I live we're still waiting for warm weather. The month of June has brought cooler, rainy days. In fact,I think it's the 19th day of rainy weather in June for us.

Lovin' the snow pics! I *so* wanted a snow day back in February...we didn't get one...

It's 97 F (about 36 C if I did my math right...)today, so that snow looks cool and refreshing....
