From dogs catching snowballs to children making their first snowpeople, Dereham residents have shared how they spent their snow days.
Storm Darcy battered Norfolk at the start of this week, with most placing seeing up to 5cm of snow, and others being hit with a lot more.
As roads became impassable, this meant 350 schools across the county closed their doors and asked people to learn remotely from home.
With the adverse weather, also came an increased need for sledges, with Starlings Toys in Dereham selling more than 300 a matter of hours.
But one change for Dereham residents during this snow day, was that children were unable to spend it with their friends and extended family.
Here is how people in the town and surrounding areas spent their snow days.
