Why we will not get snow this year.

Last year we had deep snow and a lot of it.  We had not been savvy and bought a snow shovel, so when the snow came we had to dig ourselves out using a garden spade.  Not a very practical option.  We did visit all the local DIY outlets and garages in the vain hope of finding one, but it was all to no avail.  I ended up nailing a bit of hard board onto a curtain pole and made a passible shovel, but it had to be used carefully and din't do much better than the spade.
This summer, on one of the warmest days of the year, we were shopping in Asda and saw some snow shovels. We bought one and I carried it back through the car park to the car with the wise crack "you expecting snow?"
The children laughed when they saw it too.
Since the summer the snow shovel has been standing by the door in the kitchen waiting for snow.  I suspect God's sense of humour is in full play and I don't expect we'll get to use it, although the inner child in me wants to play with it.
So as the cold spell bites and various of my virtual friends reports snowfall, I shall sit and wait and wait and wait..... maybe next year!

Hi there, we're the same. We bought a sledge on the last day of term before Christmas, when we had a little bit of snow. Hoped for more but nothing much since. Snowing a tiny bit today so there's still hope! Vic x

Thats something we haven't got either. Maybe we can get away with it this year too. Mind you, we will not be safe until March is out, even some of April it has been known to snow but at the moment it seems unlikely.
