The view from our front window at 10am this morning. Nick shovelled a path to the gate so he could take Lulu for a walk. There was no point in clearing the whole drive – we’re not going anywhere in this !!
Nick got home safe and sound yesterday. There was no sign of snow on his journey from Heathrow until he got to the Nottinghamshire/Derbyshire border. The taxi driver was carrying sleeping bags, flasks of hot coffee, snow shovels and an MOD ration pack just in case. The taxi company also has a Land Rover Freelander on standby to do rescues.
Luckily none of them were needed and the trip took 3½ hours, which is just one hour longer than normal. He arrived at the house just before more snow began to fall.
The view of our back garden at 10am this morning.
We probably have about twelve inches of snow so far and it’s still coming down, a fine wet kind of snow which is being blown almost horizontally and sticking to walls and windows.
The only good thing about it is – I couldn’t get to work today and it’s porridge again for breakfast !!
Bon weekend !!
