We did have the predicted snow yesterday !
I woke up at 2 am and looked out of the window and saw heavy rain. I went back to bed rather miffed, but was woken up by DD3 at 6.30am with the news that there was indeed snow !
The two young ones were up , dressed and out building a snowman by 7.30am, but by about 8.45 am it started to sleet heavily so we had to come inside.
We only had about an inch and a quarter of snow here, but our school was closed as the staff who lived out of town up in the hills couldn`t get in. Our main bus didn`t run from The Big City to here in Blogsville till lunchtime, so the main roads really must have been bad.......
We just pottered around and I took the dog for a walk. He was NOT impressed with the cold white stuff on the ground ! By 2pm, the snow had all gone.
As I type this, it is snowing really heavily again, but because there has been so much rain overnight, it is not even showing on the ground.........the girls are in school and I am making the most of my computer time.
We visited my mother- in -law last night, and she is looking so very frail :-(
She was not allowed out of bed yesterday at all, because her blood pressure was very low and she kept feeling faint. Although they are sorting out her kidney infection, the Consultant has said he cannot rule out the possibility that she has had a mild stroke, so she is having more investigations today and will most likely be in hospital for a time yet.
My brother -in-law has to go back to his family today, so we will be "camping out" at mother- in -law`s house to care for her elderly cat and dog for a few days; so I will only be posting sporadically for the next few days.
Tomorrow is the Feast of St Scholastica, sister of St Benedict who died in 543 AD. Some lovely stories from her life are here.
Holy St Scholastica, pray for us !!
