We have had quite a lot of snow. We're not accustomed to it, its an unusual event for most of England, so we are not geared up to cope with it - roads are closed, grit supplies run low, schools close, public transport is affected, flights are cancelled. Last year my son had a fabulous time sledging and having snowball fights on his first snow day when the school closed. I was thrilled for him in case it was his only chance to make those childhood memories - we seemed to have snow like this every year when I was growing up. And here we are again, though his school has not closed and he is not so thrilled!
