Or in our case - half a day. After having slowly slid and slipped and inched our way home yesterday, I breathed a sigh of relief when we finally got home, and all in one piece.
This morning we woke to about 2 inches of snow, with more still thickly falling and heavy brooding skies.
Having taken the younger two the (not really)treacherous 100 yards to school (along with their bitter moans that their school is never closed and it wasn't fair that their older brother got to stay home AGAIN) we wondered how much worse it was going to get as the snow kept on steadily and heavily falling.
As it turns out, much much better - by 1 pm, blue skies, bright sunshine and rapidly melting snow. Yay!
It's pretty cold though - there are still icicles on the car.
