>Snowed in

>It finally happened. We eventually had so much snow that we got snowed in down here at the bottom of the road to nowhere. The bloke opposite, who normally makes it out and back, got stuck this morning for over an hour, right in the middle of the road, so stopping another four of us. He gave up and stayed home. One or two cars are making it in and out today, but all I did was brush mine off and clear a path to it.

Time was we were advised not to clear our snow because if it froze and someone, like the postie, slipped, we’d be liable. These past couple of days we’ve been told we have to clear our little bit. I cleared my little bit then covered it with salt … time was we were advised not to use salt as it cracks the slabs, but as we don’t have slabs any more, I don’t think it will crack the tarmac.

I could get the bus, but it’s a 2 hour journey at the best of times, 2 buses plus a train each way. However, I believe many of the buses are off today and it’s quite a long walk.

At 10am today I had a telephone conference to dial into. I was quite pleased because every UK person present save one was working from home today. I didn’t feel so bad then. We had our conference, but two people were on mobile phones and the signal was bad, and we lost another two. We should get some kind of dialogue out of it though, to respond to by the end of the week.

Holly and Domino are hardly going out at all. Only when necessary, and then they’re entertaining themselves with the cat toys. Yesterday evening Holly pulled out every single one again, and left them all over the floor … again.

I might make it to the office tomorrow. We shall see. I’m getting lots of other stuff done. Yesterday I did spend much of the day watching the snow fall, the shenanigans, the children play, the weather and travel on the telly. But today I’m getting a mix of stuff done, work and chores. But I might make it to the office some time tomorrow.
