Snowed In!

Snowed in!

It started snowing overnight, and hasn’t stopped all day. This was the view at lunchtime today. Since then, there’s been at least another inch, making 10″/25cm in all so far, with more forecast for overnight. I think it’s safe to say that I’m snowed in!  The main road is passable with care – there have been gritters and snowploughs going up and down the hill all day, but the real challenge is the steep slope getting onto and off my drive. It took three hours to semi-clear the drive this afternoon, but I’m expecting to have to repeat the exercise again in the morning. I’m going to be so stiff from the unaccustomed exercise – a shovel full of snow is remarkably heavy, and I’ve shifted many cubic metres of the stuff!

    Swap car for a landrover with lots of fancy technology (and hope computers dont fail, or whoever wrote landrovers clever algorithms knew what they are talking of) and ignore all the screams from environmentalists. IGNORE the “demonisation of deisel” by our politicians.
