It was fun while it lasted… the snow is snow more….

While the rest of the country is covered in a lovely white blanket… we here in Sittingbourne got only an inch or two… (story of my life but we wont go there today)

As I was saying…….

one day of very fine snow that seemed to take forever just to cover the ground… We took the boys to the local rec to go on their new sledges for a few hours…  by Monday morning  we were left with Ice and sludge..

that’s the problem, While I love snow I do hate the ice, the sludge and the idiots trying to drive in it…
We have  a fantastic school they have only ever closed for a few snow days in all the time the boys have been there.. so yes it was open on Monday… thankfully we have the landrover to use so driving wasnt a problem, once we got on the main roads they were clear anyway as the gritters had done their job…

so a few hours up the park and an hour or so in the garden and the snow has gone all but a few bits of ice and slush and maybe the odd well insulated roof with a smattering on… And that huge pile in the school car park where the snowplough shovelled it all into a corner…..

we keep getting promised more snow but as usually it always seems to miss us…………    Yet again Sittingbourne is shielded from the snow… while all around us gets it…  its like living in the Bermuda triangle of the winter world…
