The First Day of Spring

What a surprise we got when we woke up and looked out the window this morning... It was snowing!!
It has changed the look of the village, and obliterated the mountains in the distance. And it has made our steps slippery - Sophie fell on her way to school this afternoon and had to change into a dry pair of pants before she left the house.
The snow was quite significant in the morning, but after lunch it started raining, which turns the snow slushy.
Everyone wants to go out and get the luge to go tobogganing but Odette and Hugh have both got bad coughs and runny noses. I don't want them to go out in the cold. Yesterday we went to the pharmacy and bought some medicine for them.
Stef has given us some directions for how to get to another small ski field on this side of the valley, where there should not be too many people and we could have some fun in the snow on the weekend.
