Snow day 2019

Yesterday we had a snowday. School was cancelled, mainly because my school is on a hill and the buses are unable to get up the hill when it snows.

Getting out in the snow it was interesting to see which animals had been out and where they had been.

How many footprints do you recognise?

If you click on the photos, the caption tells you.

This morning the sunrise was amazing. As the suns rays crept across the field the few birds and animals that were out enjoyed a brief few hours of warmth.

Not really wildlife, but I couldn’t resist putting in a photo of my dog enjoying the snow.

  1. A marvelous way to spend a snow day, Alex! You got a great collection of images documenting the activity. Fun to see your dog enjoying the snow, too.
