The gritter truck has been within 100 yards of our house but it may as well be 100 miles as far as getting the car out goes. I think that we ought to get a week's rebate on the council tax let alone the car road tax.
Luckily a neighbour with a 4X4 took me shopping earlier so we are well supplied.
To make life complete, we have a burst pipe in our downstairs cloakroom, even though there is a radiator in there which is on all the time. Oh well, it has been -19C for two or three nights!
I did manage to dislodge the 7 feet long icicles from our eaves today, hopefully before they have dislodged the guttering.
My 91 year old father is feeling a bit sorry for himself as he cannot get to us for tomorrow but his next door neighbour has invited him to their house for the day.
At least I can walk up to the village club for a drink in the morning, I hope that they haven't run out of beer because they've had no deliveries, like that which happened last time.
