A big surprise

This is what we woke to this morning. It was only forecast for higher ground, which we are not, so it was a big surprise, especially for the kids.

But it was already raining when they got outside. The cold eventually drove the youngest inside but not before the first snowman was made. My son stayed out longer and added an umbrella in the hope that it may keep the rain off for a while. I expect it will be all gone in a couple of hours!

Snow is not common in Western Ireland and considering we’ve hardly had any cold weather this winter, it was a lovely treat for the kids today!
