>People are still struggling as yet more snow falls on South Yorkshire. We apparently had the biggest snow dump of yesterday with “worse still to come”. It is still snowing, and it is still quite deep with 2 foot drifts at the front and waist high drifts at the back, but at least the new snow doesn’t seem to be sticking. I may venture up to the village later today to see what stocks our village shop has in. I have plenty of everything in and can make my own of pretty much anything else, but I may have to make do with full-fat milk instead of skimmed – hey, no big deal, I can water it down.
So far we’ve not had a power cut and the water hasn’t gone off, but I do have a gas fire and gas stove for warmth and to cook by if the electricity does go off, I have lots of candles, and I always keep at least a full kettle of water. The laptop will have a couple of hours battery life if the power does go off, and I can charge my phone in the car (if we get a signal – the signal was a bit unstable yesterday).
Here is the view from my bedroom window:
The tree next door has grown in the 5 years I’ve been here. We can’t see the farm on the hill from this window any more.
Here are next door’s dogs – Jessie the Softie and Sonny the Not-So-Soft:
I feel very safe having these 2 live next door.
Here is the view from the spare bedroom window:
Plan for today is work, and maybe that walk up to the village. My “new day resolution” of 2 days ago was to finish at least one draft of something, which I did. I’m still working on the media kit/publicity pack for the book. And I have articles from work to be getting on with – plus I had a message from work too regarding the magazine. It’s still on hold.
Holly ventured out into the snow this morning and got stuck on the other side. I had to don a pair of wellies and go rescue her in my nightie … Domino hasn’t moved. For days.
I hope everyone is safe and well.
