The forecasted snow has indeed arrived – or rather half of what we were told was coming.
We awoke to 2″ here in Ossett and it has been persisting all morning thus far.
Ossett schools are closed (seems that they close when a few snowflakes touch the front door) and Silcoates is open. We took the boys up to school in Emily (not enough snow to warrant getting Bruce out to the job) and have agreed with Oliver’s teacher that we will collect him from lunchtime as he still has ear-ache and is feeling under the weather, thus swimming is not a great idea for him today.
Silcoates have text us to say that they will monitor the snow and decide whether it will stay open. The only reason really for closure is if it continues to drop the snow as the poor groundsmen definitely had their work cut out in trying to keep the paths clear.
