Blizzard in Earlswood

Now, I would normally attempt to stay calm (or get excited, depending on the occasion) about a snow storm of this magnitude, but having been out 6 times now to try and clear the steps with broom and salt (and each time being utterly defeated), it's looking increasingly like we are going to be completely buried...even the grit lorries (who are normally fairly reliable in emergency conditions) seem to have been diverted to other priorities, and so we sit, gradually sinking deeper and deeper beneath the snow...and there is no end in sight! First flake was at about 1230hrs, and the breaks have been rather few and far between...

Yay, "working from home" today then! Already been out in the garden with the dog, jumping around in the snow!
