First Snow Day in 2013!

We had our first snow fall this year! It caused a lot of havoc yesterday in and around Swindon and other parts of England and Wales. They estimated we got around 4-6 inches of snow, not much but enough to close many schools, delay buses and trains. My son's school was one of the few schools  which were opened in the morning. To my son's horror- he wanted a snow day. But because it snowed throughout the morning, the head teacher thought it would be best to close at midday. It continued to snow all day and most of the night. I took some photos of our winter wonderland.
 This was my son when I turned up at his school with his sled. Was he happy or what?
Below are photos of our local park.

He and a school friend are pulled along by his friend's dad. He had a blast.
Outside my studio at the back of our house.
Jack our dog, enjoying himself in our back garden. 
He's had enough-so he's coming inside.

They say we will get more snow over the next couple of days. We just have to wait and see.
Bye for now.
