Snow markers have been up all over our village since Monday. I was told that last year there wasn’t much snow here in the Jura. However, the year before the snow level was up to the orange!
That’s a lot of snow.
We have already bought snow pants and a coat that is wind and water proof for my five year old daughter. At school, the kids go out and play in the snow at recess. Her school yard is more a yard with park equipment than a school yard typically found in the States. I think my daughter is going to have fun building snow forts and tunnels during her recess.
Her teacher told all the parents to make sure that the kids wear snow pants or a snow suit to school or else they have to take the kids jeans off to dry when they come back inside from playing.
A couple times during the winter her class will even go sledding. How cool is that?
Here is a close up photo of a snow marker.
