Look at my poor garden gnomes today!!! It snowed all night, and then all day too, and by this evening they were completely buried!
This was the view we woke up to this am [it started snowing slightly 9pm last night, otherwise it had just been a hard frost yesterday]...
from our bedroom window
from George's window at the back of the house
The kids built a snowman this morning, and Sophie and I sledged before starting our igloo in the back garden.
I took some photographs down the road; there were plenty of people getting their cameras out, it was so beautiful.
We finished the igloo late this afternoon. The boys were great at making 'bricks' by packing snow in the washing up bowl :)
It does look more like a beehive than an igloo, but it's ace inside with candles lit.
Forecast a freeze tonight so this igloo should last us a while! We're much more used to rain here in Manchester than this much snow. It was such an unusual thing that ITV broadcast their national news live from Manchester tonight!! Snow's on it's way down south tonight. I think I need a play inside day tomorrow, every time I shut my eyes all I see is snow falling. I spent 11 hours out there today, just went in for lunch!!
