Do you think this looks like a cat?
Our grandchildren built it on Saturday, they said it was a snowman but I think it looks like a cat!
We had a lot of snow here, again, on Saturday and apparently that has set the trend for the next week. We are never ready for snow here in England no matter how much notice we get. The gritters hadn't even been out on the main roads when MWM went out to get his paper yesterday morning and they certainly never come down our grove, we just have to wait for it to thaw. I'm just praying it will thaw before Wednesday 13th so that there's no way our flight to Barbados will be cancelled or delayed.
Keep your fingers crossed for us.
Edited to say:
I should mention that picture was taken in the centre of Manchester where the snowfall was very light on Saturday. The children built the snowcat whilst we were visiting my father. Where we live (and the grandchildren) we had about 5 inches of snow on top of the 6 inches from last week that hadn't disappeared! That may not be a lot compared to America and Canada but here in England it's enough to grind everything to a halt!
