More snow today-of the wet, soft and slushy variety. It had made a thin layer on everything and was very slippery. I set up outside this morning, and while doing so couldn't resist a little play myself. The snow was just the right consistency and thickness to show the tarmac perfectly and to cling to whatever object was being used. Unfortunately, by the time the children got in, it was not this way anymore, but was still good for some snow castles and some slushy snowballs which stuck to the fence well.
