These photos were taken around the house at about 11am today. No caption is needed I'm sure !! The snow is over the top of my new wellington boots and is about 15-18" deep.
The last time we had this much snow was in 1990. That year the water was off for 3 days and the electricity for 5 days. My elderley neighbour had no power for nearly two weeks as her house is on a different circuit to ours. At least this year we have been spared that particular difficulty - so far anyway.
We are up and running with our new internet provider. The welcome pack and new router should have arrived yesterday but so far it hasn't appeared. It's no doubt in a van stuck in a good Derbyshire snow drift somewhere. But we have got the old router working again for now.
I don't know when we will be able to get out in the car again as more snow is forecast for tonight and tomorrow.
