There’s no days like snow days

Hey there!

So we get cold weather in Ireland but we haven’t had weather like this in 36 years. I for one am a huge fan of snow. I love everything about it, the fun, the laughs, the falling over, the snow man building and chats around the fire. But this snow lasted for days and I began to get a bit of cabin fever to say the least!!

I was in a play with the drama society at college and we only got to perform it once due to the bad weather which was such a shame. We all really enjoyed the opening night at least. I came out after the show to a blizzard and a thin layer of snow that was quickly sticking to the ground. Luckily I had a lift home from my Dad who kindly came out to bring me back home.

College was cancelled the next day and the day after, and the day after that so I had a nice long weekend off. I was honestly so surprised at how deep the snow got. My friend put her metre stick in the ground and it disappeared!


Enjoying the snow!
Couldn’t believe that the trees could hold so much snow!!

I went to our local park with my Mam in the early stages of the snow and we took lots of photographs together. It was so lovely and peaceful and there were a decent amount of people out by themselves, with dogs and with their children. I love stomping around in the deep snow!


The next day I went out again with my parents but we couldn’t stay out for very long as the winds got worse and it was freezing! I could barely take my hands out of my gloves to take some more photos! We got home before the red weather warning began. We stayed nice and warm by the fire for the rest of the day.

One of the upsides to having so much snow is that I had a lot of free time on my hands. I finished my criminal law essay and made a start on my English essay. I also got a fair bit of reading, blogging and tidying done, so that’s a big win for me, if I do say so myself.

*I wrote this about two weeks ago when we had heavy snow and funnily enough it’s started snowing again here and it’s sticking! I don’t know whether to feel happy about it or annoyed that it’s so cold and I can’t go out jogging!

Did you have snow where you live?

Do you like snow too or are you completely against it?

Until next time,

  1. It’s so lovely to read about you enjoying the snow and seeing your lovely pictures too! I enjoy seeing the countryside turned into a winter wonderland in the snowy weather, I love opening my curtains in the morning to blankets of white! It can get quite annoying if it lingers for too long because it means I can’t depend on any form of public transport but for a few days a year that doesn’t bother me too much! Such a shame that you didn’t get to do all of your performances but the fun in the snow seems to have made up for it somewhat!

  2. It honestly depends! Sometimes I love it but here in the states, Virginia especially, the weather has been so crazy it’s hard to get excited about it. It was snowing terribly the other day at 8am and by around 5pm it was bright and sunny and HOT outside. So in the winter, I’m a fan. Not when it’s freezing in the morning and hot in the afternoon.

    1. Ah that’s fair enough, I’d say it’s pretty hard to travel to uni then with the bad weather. Unfortunately we always find out at the last minute whether uni is open or not so it’s a bit of a guessing game!
      Thanks for reading!
