#SoCS Mar 3/18 – Fine

Linda’s prompt for SoCS this week…

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “fine.” Use it any way you’d like, bonus points if you use it as the last word of your post. Have fun!

Well, y’all know that we’ve been battling all these storms this week in lil ole’ UK…

Nothing fine about the way things were handled…

The Beast from the East came and disabled most of the South East, the East and Scottish at the beginning of the week.

“Yay!” Said the kids, “Snow days!”

A few centimetres of snow and shutdown occurred! All the schools were closed. Trains and buses cancelled. The roads were chaos. People were stuck on motorways overnight as they got stuck.

Then that cheeky storm, Emma, snuck in from the south and created more havoc in the South West and Wales too!

For the first time in history, (I think) there were red weather warnings raised in Scotland and the South West due to snow. If you don’t know, that means risk to life if you were to venture out! Eek! We were told some places could get up to 50 centimetres!!!!!

Us here in the South East were stuck with the remnants of the Tuesday and Wednesday falls, slowly turning to slush and ice.

Due to the warnings regarding the approaching storm, schools were closed again Thursday and Friday (snow day? More like Snow WEEK!) so the kids were in heaven!

Thursday saw no new substantial snow, but Friday afternoon brought another deluge, thanks to lovely Emma!

All this white stuff is lovely… but what’s the point when it’s that awful powdery stuff that is so fine, it doesn’t stick together, so you can’t make a decent snowball, let alone a snowman!

The kids have tried really hard to make them. The first lot of snow was great. Lil Princess made a three-tier one.


Yesterday, Hubby Dearest ventured out with Lil Man, hoping to make something bigger, but to no avail. They tried and tried but the dang snow just wouldn’t stay together. They ended up with a pile of snow, rather than a figure of any sort… a snow mountain!

On Friday we ventured out to my in-laws house, as we hadn’t been out.

There are no other kids here so the garden’s snow content was largely untouched, apart from the path my father-in-law had painstakingly cleared, from the house to the garage… (three times so far).

Lil Man was in heaven!

He went out, determined to make something, and make something, he did!

A snow penguin!


What do you reckon? I think he did just fine!

Catch ya later Peeps!

Happy Saturday Peeps!

    I love snow days! You can sleep in and the whole day is free. You get to choose whatever you want to do. It’s awesome!

    I think he did just fine too!! Wow it has been stormy for you! We just had a storm come thru yesterday, it was called a Bombogenesis, that’s when a cyclone rapidly intensifies. It was supposed to be the worst ever, remember the movie The Perfect Storm, that was a bombogenesis and the Northeast coast of America got hammered by it yesterday. I’m inland some, we had heavy rain and strong winds. Thank goodness it didn’t turn to snow!! Everything today here is fine. 😉 Have a wonderful weekend Ritu. xo

    Do you make up your snow days in the summer? We’ve had years where they’ve had to cancel spring break to make up for s lit of snow days.
