Thankfully the snow held off until the Friday evening of last week. I didn't need to be anywhere until Monday morning so if it snowed all weekend and then rained on Sunday evening, it would be ideal! It didn't happen like that, sadly, and only yesterday did the rain come and wash away all of the ice.
The kids were so excited to see the snow on Friday and there was enough on the ground for them to build a snowman after dinner. Husband got the shovel out and piled all the snow on to the decking. I watched for awhile before running a bath for them all (and I may have jumped in to it myself first!) as I knew they'd be freezing when they finished.
Here is their snowman creation; Olaf, of course:
