AA meetings closed.
Swimming club cancelled.
Can't get to work... so working from home off the dining room table while the rest of the family try to be quite around me when I'm on telephone calls.
Clear the drive and it starts snowing again before I got finished!
Cancelled plan to get son back to university this weekend.
Still things to be grateful for... I'm warm, have plenty of food, etc. really it is no hardship just pigging annoying.
Hats off to the people who do carry on working, we've had deliveries over the last two days, even if the parcelforce guys had to trudge up the road with my heavy box as they didn't fancy getting stuck in our road. The post man continues as well and Amazon met their next day delivery promise via CityLink.
Not felt brilliantly well this week, the tinnitus and balance issue there again, had a clear day most of yesterday but Tues night, Wed and today have been crap. Hey ho... this will all pass some point.
I was born in 1962 so was a tiny baby in the great freeze of 1963. It snowed on Boxing Day and didn't thaw until March!! The sea froze at Herne Bay! Apparantly my son says that the marina at Aberystwyth has frozen this year and temperatures are near the lowest ever.
Is this the result of Climate Change? Just cos on average the whole world is getting warmer doesn't mean that we might not have winters like this more often than not now?
Some politian said it would need £15m to clear the roads daily in the winter in the South East - businesses are losing £30m a day. So I think to myself surely they and us would pay more tax? He said it's be £60 a year on my council tax bill - that is £5 a month and I pay £130 a month now, frankly little increase it seems to me. But then I suppose at the moment I don't struggle to pay that like others may.
