Friday night saw a large drop of snow on Yorkshire (as accurately predicted for three days by the met office 🙂 ) and so Saturday morning mummy and daddy were shovelling the snow off the drive and shared driveway at the bottom of our drive. There was around 4 to 5 inches that had appeared overnight so we deemed it smart to get rid of it before it turned to hardened ice. The weather forecasters had also suggested that it was going to turn to rain during Sunday and hence would vanish. We didn’t believe that part of it.
We should have heeded the advice and not bothered clearing the snow – the temperature had risen from -6 Celsius on Friday morning all the way to 7 Celsius on Saturday lunchtime. The rain came overnight on Saturday night so all the snow that we had seen drop on Sunday night was literally completely gone on Sunday morning. For a moment, we wondered if we had slept for a couple of days….
Elliot and Oliver stayed over at Cuckoos on Saturday night as mummy and daddy were going out for dinner with Granddad David to celebrate his birthday.
We all had a lovely lunch at Cuckoo’s yesterday afternoon and head home in the wet to prepare for school and work today.
It looks very much like we will be getting more rain and lots of heavy winds for the next few days 🙁
