I spent the morning in my bunker communicating remotely, luckily I had two border collies, one either side to keep me warm, mission accomplished.

Think I'll light a fire and celebrate cos my bones are chilled through.

Snow still everywhere and minus 7 in the wind outside. No one about. Heating on and fire lit, a warming homemade Leek and potato soup for lunch. Lincolnshire seems to have had a pretty bad time of it.

Drifts about two foot deep up here. Side roads (and some main roads) still unpassable. Going to come in heavy again this afternoon, then melt overnight, according to Derek.

Bloody hell. You and Fids have had it three times as bad here. Must be brilliant.

Apparently, Swansea was in some little window that missed everything, and barely got half an inch, which instantly melted.

My Sister-in-law and her husband mentioned on Wales Online, ferrying nurses to the Heath from Caerphilly area, they have a Honda CRV and they think it's a snowmobile, but fair play for their efforts.

https://www.walesonline.co.uk/news/wale ... e-14358135

Code:
Another couple, Catherine Cumpston and her husband Lee, from Caerphilly also offered lifts to nurses and medical staff travelling to and from the University Hospital of Wales, Cardiff.

"It’s no big deal really, we have a 4x4 and a friend asked for help for a local nurse who needed to get to the Heath to relive[sic] other nurses who had been working all night.

"So, we offered to help and asked if anyone needs help getting back - we all need to do our bit!

"My mum has been very ill lately and I hate the thought of others not being able to be seen at hospital due to lack of staff. The medical staff need medals never mind us."

No snow at all with us just outside Swansea. All schools closed mind. Not sure why?

All well, buddy? She's good?



My garden had 12" of snow on it this morning with 20" later on after the ferocious wind earlier this afternoon.

The Redwings have arrived.

Hopefully.
About 10” out back 4 in the front , back is about 16’ higher than the front perhaps that was enough

Looting in South Dublin. Usual scum broke into a Lidl, ransacked it then returned with a digger to tear the place down before starting a fire. Army on the way, hopefully they have live ammo and liquidate the area, it would help the Irish gene pool.
