Friday 18th January 2013, 2:13PM GMT.
SNOWMEN and women were built from the glistening ground of Saumarez Park this morning.
Battle lines were also drawn between families and friends as snowball fights broke out in the early morning chill.
Sisters Nicole and Mireille Guilmoto, with their friend Evie Weeks were among the youngsters at Saumarez who had been unable to get to school due to the standstill traffic in the early morning.
They had built a snowman and woman together.
‘It took us about 15 minutes, said 17-year-old Evie. ‘It was hard work pushing them – our feet slipped.’
Nicole, 15, said they had been constructing a head for their snowman but it was too big and they decided to make a woman as well.
Her sister Mireille, 17, added: ‘You can’t make a snowman without making a woman.’
