EMotion: A Blog A Day: Snow... in Blackpool? Yeah!!!

For me it was quite clear what today's post was going to be all about... SNOW. For once, Blackpool actually got snow. Being so close to the sea, we rarely get a decent enough snowfall, and when i say decent, i mean good enough to have a snowball fight, build a snowman, go sledging, and generally just have absolute fun in the snow. It was brilliant. For a few hours, i got to be 5 year old again. Running up and down, throwing snow balls, falling to the ground making snow angels, playing with my next door neighbours dog, and of course sledging.
This is what greeted me this morning on my street. I decided the best vantage point was in the middle of the road... so that's where is stood. If you click on the bigger images, you can actually still see the snow falling.

The view from my bedroom window.
Hill... sledge... hill... sledge.... hmmmmm.
Huh...... weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee.... kerplunk!

The poor people getting to work in Blackpool on a Monday morning didn't know what had hit them. Four cars were abandoned on my street, with many other sliding to a temporary halt. In the image above, you can see several cars abandoned on the left hand side of the street as they tried to get up the icy hill by the park. They were still there several hours later.

The park.

Two people looking rather happy to be in the snow... don't you think.
