Let It Snow

The UK has been affected by the worst snowfall for nearly 2 decades....
It was all over the news both on the TV and in the daily papers.
Schools were closed, people couldn't get to work, there were power cuts.
Great Britain came to a standstill.

I woke at 6.30am on Monday to find half an inch of snow.
The cats wouldn't go out, my daughter was excited about walking to school in it.
Maybe we'd get some more?
The TV was full of the news that more was coming and to be prepared.
By 10am ours had disappeared and we haven't had any since.
My mum and sisters phoned me to tell me their schools were closed, refuse collectors hadn't been, there was no mail because the mailmen couldn't get to work.
And here I sat with none of the white stuff.

Oh Mother Nature, why did you miss us out?
All we wanted was a proper 'snow day' like the rest of the UK got.

I'll be back later with a little something I made.
