We woke up this morning to a light coating of snow but it soon started up again, big fluffy flakes which settled. Today we weren't using electricity at school (so that the children could appreciate how many things use it - this terms project is electricity) and I'm sure that the white outside helped to compensate for not having lights. So today's photo had to be of the snow.
I then read Kathi's lucky snapping prompt on Nostalgia. My childhood and Dad have been very much on my mind this last week and the snow made me think back to the story behind this photo.
It must have been the winter of 62/63 and Dad and I had made this huge snowball but were in trouble with the neighbours when we couldn't move it and it was blocking the road. Think Dad might have been in a bit more trouble than me.
I will have to think of something else for the New Beginnings theme but nostalgia and snow just seemed to fit this photo.
