Even more snow

January 7, 2010

Well, I did finish building a half-decent snowman that evening but so much extra snow fell over night he became heavy and lop-sided and collapsed.

This was the view from my front door this morning:
Stuck for over a day

The GTO was clearly going nowhere.
Very soon all my neighbours who hadn’t gone to work appeared with shovels. After clearing our drives we set about the road itself, since the chances of the council doing it are zero:
All hands to the road clearing

By mid-afternoon, with the temperature never above -2C but, with some decent sunshine on the exposed tarmac, it was looking pretty good.

It’s just a shame the next road is foot deep snow ruts and the main road is now frozen slush. I sense another day at home tomorrow unless they send a 4×4 to take me in. Perhaps a new snowman?
