Snow Happy

I know a lot of people don’t like the white stuff, but I love it.  I’m always careful what I write about my love of it, as last year I posted a photo out of our window, sharing how happy I was about it on Facebook, and goodness me, all the negative comments that came back.  It always surprises me when folk do that, I mean why they need to rain on my parade is beyond me.  So over her on my little blog, I’m sharing MY love of it (if you hate it, I do understand its not everyones cup of tea, but please be kind and don’t leave moans on here).

So anyway, last weekend while watching the weather it said that the Beast from the East, would be hitting Kent hard during the week with snow.  Like most of these warnings, nothing really comes of it. Well, boy was I wrong.

From Monday it started, and we had snow the whole week.  Of course we took the opportunity to go out and get some photos; and let me share these with you know.

The bears absolutely loved it.  It was the first time they’d really seen proper snow and Molly was like a little spring lamb, jumping in and out of it, and sticking her head deep into the snow.

I’m in awe of the lovely place we’ve moved too and you often hear more negative press about it, than good, but the people of it, have the biggest hearts you’ll find.  First thing on the Monday, people were putting out messages, offering to do food shopping for the elderly or those unable to get out.  Our schools pride themselves on opening, and people were offering to pick up other kids from school and drop them off, or even keep them until the parents could come and get them.  Even today, when the snow has all gone, I’m still hearing of how people just went out and cleared paths from some people’s homes, so they were safe.  That’s a community, I’m proud off.
