I got woken up today by my daughter screaming, "Dad... it's snowing... it's snowing!"

We decided not to send her to school, and we had (A9) ... great time — we even made a snowman (A10) ... the backyard. We used dried cranberries for the eyes and a baby carrot for the nose because it was a baby snowman. People are so amazed (A11) ... the weather that I have seen some of them just standing there staring as if they were in a trance. It looks like the work of a skillful decorator for a movie. It was chaos, though, for people going to work, a whole load of trucks were stuck (A12) ... the snow. And it's been (A13) ... very bad news (A14) ... the citrus trees — they're all frozen. Even if (A15) ... snow melts tomorrow, the damage is already done. So I'm afraid we won't be eating any local oranges this year!

I got woken up today by my daughter screaming, "Dad... it's snowing... it's snowing!" She just couldn't believe it — not surprising as they said (A8) ... the news that it hasn't snowed here for nearly 50 years! We decided not to send her to school, and we had (A9) ... great time — we even made a snowman (A10) ... the backyard. We used dried cranberries for the eyes and a baby carrot for the nose because it was a baby snowman. People are so amazed (A11) ... the weather that I have seen some of them just standing there staring as if they were in a trance. It looks like the work of a skillful decorator for a movie. It was chaos, though, for people going to work, a whole load of trucks were stuck (A12) ... the snow. And it's been (A13) ... very bad news (A14) ... the citrus trees — they're all frozen. Even if (A15) ... snow melts tomorrow, the damage is already done. So I'm afraid we won't be eating any local oranges this year!
