My Snow Memories #DreamingofSnow PLUS WIN a £50 Go Outdoors Voucher

At the moment Inntravel are running a campaign #DreamingofSnow, asking bloggers to share their snow memories and I thought I would share mine with you. I could probably count on both hands the memories I have of snow. All of which are really magical.

There are a number of recollections from when I was a child. Here is a photo of one them showing me, my brothers Oliver and Jeremy and my sisters Harriette and Davina:

There was Grace’s first snow back when we lived with my Mum:

1931410_47647823243_71_n

Then there is the first one that we experienced with Ross. I can remember turning round and bringing Grace home from school, fearful for the fact that I wouldn’t get her back. Then Ross and Grace decided to go outside for a snowball fight.That was interesting!

But I think that the one that stands out in my mind the most was when it was just me and Grace living in our little flat in a village in Berkshire. It snowed so badly that it felt like we were cut off for days! The village shop ran out of milk and bread and Grace and I lived on soup and hot chocolate. We made snowmen and snow dogs and, together with our neighbour, Roxy, we cleared the garages and drive into our flats (we were a bit miffed that the landlord didn’t even bother – he was OK, he had a Landrover!).  But it was wonderful. Grace and I felt like we had our own little world where we could snuggle up and get warm.

    The last time it snowed here was just after we got our dog, Betsy. She was only a few weeks old and watching her come to terms with this freezing cold white stuff was hilarious. It’s been two years now since we had enough snow to play in so I’m waiting for more!

    Getting sent home as a child as the snow was so bad hardly anyone could get into school/work. We left school and built huge snow mountains, which we slid down on our sledges!

    We rarely get snow where I live but do still remember the first time I played in snow when I was 3 and am 40 yrs now! Built a big snowball with all the neighbours & tried to roll it down a hill. It was bigger than I was at the time. Happy memories.

    We actually got our old dog due to the snow. I was about 6 being pulled along on my sledge. A car slowed down ahead of us and threw a small bundle out into the snow. As we got near, it was moving. It was a little black puppy. Mum wrapped it in her coat and put it on the sledge next to me. I didn’t want to go to school after that I wanted to go home with my mum and the dog. When I got home later, the dog was washed and dry and mum had tried to find somewhere to take her, but in the end had decided to keep her. She became our dog, the lovely, gentle Molly, who sadly is no longer with us. It was a long time ago. I am so glad that horrible person threw her out, as we would never had been honoured enough to spend those years with such a loving dog. All thanks to the snow.

    I remember being snowed in ,1987 in the south east , watching the snow fall continually for about 3 weeks , and walking out to try and get bread and milk . My husband was a carpet fitter and couldn’t get to work , I remember an irate customer complaining he hadn’t got to them on the Isle of Sheppey , even though the military were airlifting food to the island as it was cut off , that was unbelievable .

    Snow days as a kid, having day off school and go sledding with all my friends. We walked miles through fields just to get to this big hill near our village. I was lucky to have a sled but my friends had to use bin liners and dinner trays!

    Fave memory is from 2014 – I took my cousin 7 her kids to Lapland! When we asked them what the highlight of the trip was – we were surprised it wasn’t meeting Santa – but the husky sledding (& I have to agree!) My cousin & I both got the chance to drive the sled too – it was awesome!!

    When the snows came when we were little. My dad stayed up all night in the garage while it snowed making sledges for my brother and I. I still have mine and the boys now use it!

    I remember having really bad snow the day of my nan’s funeral at least 6″-8″ and the funeral was at the top of a hill, Nan would have loved laughing at us all slipping and sliding in our wellies, the lovely thing was that nans friends, and relatives some in there late 70s had walked for miles in the snow to show there respect. Although a very sad memory a happy one too to know she meant that much to people that they would trudge for miles through heavy snow. And my nan would have found it highly amusing

    I was on a date with my husband climbing some of the Pentland hills just outside Edinburgh and they were covered in snow. So, being all flirty and playful we started throwing snowballs but just as I was throwing mine my foot lost its grip and I went sliding down on my bum. Not very graceful.

    My first memory of snow coincided with my first ever padded welly boots. I remember putting them on and feeling so snug in them and opening the front door to see a perfect unspoilt blanket of snow. I stepped out into that snow like i was the first man on the moon and really enjoyed making fresh footprints with my new boots.

    Growing up in a small Scottish village we were regularly snowed in…..all the kids used to meet up in the park, split into two teams on opposite sides of the grassy area and you had a set amount of time to build up your defences and snowball pile before the mass snowball fight commenced…….great fun, great memories playing until it got dark and our mums came looking for us.

    I remember as a student at Leeds University it snowed so much we could hardly get out the Halls of Residence. We made home made sledges and sledged to Uni. My boyfriend was almost killed by a huge long thick icicle that came crashing down from a high building and just missed him. He is a GP now so a close call!

    Two rather scary but very memorable events took place when I was a student. The first happened when I was out walking in snow at Easter in the Scottish Highlands. As I walked over this gully the snow around me broke off and avalanched. I slid down on a large patch of snow until this hit a boulder field where it broke up. With my cushion of snow gone my bum and coccyx hit the rocks. I stood up above the snow and shouted “That was incredible!” I then realised my back and bum hurt. I was ok after a couple of days rest so all’s well that ends well!
    The second was when we were sliding on snow with plastic sacs. I mistook the advice and got inside mine, When i slid i lost all control and ploughed into a snowdrift. Hmmm maybe i should listen better in future!

    In more recent years, my little girl just stood in the garden in amazement with her arms outstretched, smiling and giggling at it. Was such a lovely thing to see, and many years ago my dad built a snow igloo we could actually get inside and a racing car, but that was back when we used to get 5 foot deep snow and could actually go out and play in it 😀

    When I was young I lived in the North East of Scotland and when it snowed it certainly snowed. I remember snow so thick that it was nearly waist deep. The best bit was going sledging and going zooming down the hill for ages until we were so cold we had to go back home and have some lovely warming hot chocolate! The other good thing was that if heavy snow was predicted we got sent home from school early and I remember us all standing in the playground and looking up at the sky hoping for a sign! 🙂

    When I was a child I grew up on a farm and remember as a teenager some heavy snow and we spent the day sledging down one of the fields all day. My step brother and I ended up in a hedge at one point instead of going through the gate!

    After 1978 blizzard in Michigan, made tunnels throughout the front yard with a fort. Neighbors and I, spent night out in the snow fort. Lived on court, and it froze over so could ice skate on it once it was plowed. Best winter ever!

    Taking my sons on the North Yorkshire moors in deep snow. My youngest son sank into a snow drift and shouted ‘the snow’s up to my privates!’. We all rolled and played in the snow and then went home to a big pan of chicken stew and a roaring fire – Brilliant day

    My favourite snow memory is of my old labrador. .Sam…he LOVED the snow..from his first experience as a pup to a 17 year old senior….the one thing he could not fathom out is where the “ball” went! Throw him a snowball and he would spend ages looking for it 🙂

    Many years ago we were coming home from the midlands to Leeds and we got caught in a snow storm and the roads were blocked we were diverted and eventually we got on to the M62 which was covered in snow and there was no other cars just us. It was like being in a film where the world has ended and you are the only ones left on earth – very errie and strange

    We are very low down here in Bucks, so we hardly get any snow. However, we did a couple of years ago and it was quite deep, so we went sledging with these little bottom sledges. It was fantastic, and even though we got so cold and so wet it was amazing fun!

    When I was six I got a pair of rollers skates for Christmas and I pleaded with my mum to take my to the local park to I could try them out except, the ground was covered with about four inches of snow. My mum, to her credit, indulged me and even though I only managed to skate a foot or so I really did have the best time.

    Due to being up in the Highlands we can get a lot of snow at times, and when I was small we had a power cut on christmas day, rather than us being upset by it all. It was made more magical as we were by candle light (It was in the evening so we had our meal already lol)

    I went to university in aberdeen – being from Cardiff where we hardly ever get snow I didnt quite understand how bad it can get – I got a train one morning to visit my friend in Dufftown – 4 hours later all the rail and roads were cut off due to snow and I was stranded there for 5 days – we had snowball fights, made snowangels, built snow people and had a blast although it was a tad difficult managing without clothes and things with me being large and her being little – I had to sleep naked whilst my clothes were washed and dried each day!

I daren’t drive the 12 miles home in my little car so had to wait until tea time for hubby to come and collect me. Meanwhile everybody else scurried home in the middle of the afternoon leaving me on my own 🙁

    The first memory i have of snow was actually on a Christmas day. I was taken by my dad to the local recreation area, just a few minutes walk away. My mum was heavily pregnant with my sister so it was just the 2 of us and our black Labrador. My dad had a huge yellow sledge and i remember us both sitting in it and sledging down the hillside with the dog chasing after us and barking. Great memory and my parents have a picture of me and the dog on that very day on the wall in their lounge 🙂

    When my daughter was 3 we built a snowman together and she wanted to give it a carrot for a nose. Every time she stuck the carrot in its face and stepped away it fell off. She must have done at least 5 times before calmly knocking the snowmans head off and walking away without saying a word. So funny!

    I remember when I was about 10 and me and my brother built the most amazing igloo from buckets of snow carefully placed on top of each other (sandcastle style). Sadly we had no idea how to make a roof on it without it caving in until we thought of using a big piece of wood that my Dad had in the garden. Now all we needed was a door. Sadly we decided on our elder sisters new cream bedroom rug that we draped over the roof and allowed to hang down. Needless to say it was now more of a yellowy brown bedroom rug. Our sister was furious and mum was too but our lovely igloo still brings a smile to my face all these years later.

I dressed my daughter in her snowsuit and she cried her eyes out!! I tried to get her to touch him, but she totally freaked out. She was okay once I moved her away and she looked at him from afar, she likes them now almost 2 years later so fingers crossed for some snow this year

    I used to walk over a common to get to school. i was kicking around in the snow with my brother and spotted this big mound that i just had to jump into . it was a huge pile of snow, but a snow covered mound of dirt. hurt like mad but was very funny

    I remember my first winter living in Canada – now that really WAS snow ! The children had to be dressed in snowsuits and scarves so that just their eyes were showing otherwise they might get frost bite, the huge piles of snow left at the road edges by the plows each night, having to snowblow the drive so that you could get out onto the road and above all the fun and beauty of a white world

    I had a really amazing night out with all my friends for a film showing, the film was made by a friend. While we’d been in the hotel an amazing 6 inches of beautiful snow had fallen and when it came to closing time in the bar everyone turned out for the most incredible snowball fight ever! There were around 30 people making up 3 different teams and it all took place in the most amazing location around Buxton park and Opera House! Really really good fun, and no getting cold as we all had beer jackets on!

    Going back a long time for this one. It started snowing about midnight and my boyfriend and I went out in the street and had a snowball fight. Then the street lights clicked off and we were playing by the light of the snow. Thinking back we must have been mad (and young,,,lol) as we weren’t wearing proper clothing or shoes and it probably annoyed the neighbours but it was great fun 😀

    Would be a few years ago when the snow was really bad, think it was november time and the snow was coming over my wellys, it was the first time our daughter Eloise had really seen the snow and we took her out all wrapped up on the sledge to the shop pulling her, she loved it. It was also the first time our cats had been out in the snow and was so funny watching them bounce and dissapear in the snow then jump back out

    One of my nicest memories concerning snow relates to my childhood. It was the late 60’s/early 70’s I must have been about 3. We lived in a block of flats and it was snowing. I think that this may have been the first time that I’d seen proper snow and I was enchanted by it. For some reason I couldn’t go outside to get a closer look but I remember my mother scooping some snow up from the window sills and putting it in a bowl for me to play with, as well as storing some in the fridge to keep me happy (and it did).

    Simply :- Years ago when the family had two dogs. They seemed to love the snow, and would run around in it. If we made snowballs they would chase them, aiming to catch them. They seemed to have such fun, regardless of the depth of the snow. They were small dogs :- being Cairn Terriers. What lovely memories!

I will NEVER forget this because, as we were approaching my grandmother’s house (on foot) the snow was getting deeper and deeper. It was, believe or not, up to our waist and we were able to walk because people already made a little “lane” through it. Bosnia had the same two years ago
