Snow Day

Yesterday morning it was clear and the snow was beginning to melt...

We had a snow day and it was Nicks day off yesterday. It almost seemed silly we were having a snow day.

But by yesterday afternoon it was snowing, hard. It was described as blizzard like conditions on the news. I would not have liked to drive in it, but it was very pretty to play in at home.

Looking towards our house.

Our back section.

Looking up the street.

Looking down the street

Now I'm lying in bed sniffing and waiting to find out if we're having another snow day. All the schools around us are still closed. So I think the chances are pretty good that we'll be closed today. There's still a chance for snow later today. It's not supposed to be as bad today, mainly sleet and showers.

But then they said yesterday wasn't going to be as bad as Monday...and you can see what happened!

I had plans to do a snow mani, but just as I was starting to paint my nails the neighbours wanted a snow fight... Maybe I'll do them today!


  1. Yay! I hope you're having fun out in the snow!

  2. ahhh i wish we got snow here!

  3. I am jealous! I hope we get some real snow this year! I could use a few days off.

  4. I'm loving this snow!! Im from Upper Hutt. it's like another world! I've never seen anything like it here

  5. I know what you mean. We're in Stokes Valley. It was crazy driving the other day. Petone was normal, Lower Hutt normal, Stokes Valley was white and Upper Hutt was whiter still. I teach in Upper Hutt and we've got a snow day :)

  6. So jealous! I want snow in August. I'm moving there.

  7. Lol, sow is incredibly rare for last time was 30 years ago rare. But we have plenty of rain normally in August...
