Overnight Guernsey had 3 inches of snow
Now to those of you used to snow that is not a whole lot, but for us it is huuuuge!
This is what greeted me outside the front door this morning
The island is not geared up for snow. As I speak the airport is closed, the buses are not running and the official line is that unless you have experience of driving in snow and a 4×4 don't drive. The upshot of all this is that the schools are closed and I get a snow day! Poor old hubby has had to struggle into work – he's taken my car which is a 4×4 – I think he may well be one of the few today..
So I am sitting here sipping my coffee, nibbling on my toast and honey and trying to decide what to do with this bounty…… yeah I will probably knit – though I do have some ironing to do and some washing to put away – oh and there is some singles on my wheel that need to be plied as well. Oh the luxury of a day where nothing is planned,
The dog is not impressed – he has never met snow before – I don't think he likes it – he walked out the back door, round in several tight circles and straight back in again and refuses to budge from the couch
Ah well off to enjoy my day – they do say we might get another dollop tonight – 2 snow days? now that would be really unusual
