Snow Fun!

What's it like with you guys? Here in almost the highest part of Cumbernauld it's torture. Spent yet another day at home as I was unable to get the car out of the street & public transport is not an option for work. Any cars / vans coming into our street don't get out as it's uphill. Moved the car back & forth on the drive but it bottoms out when I try to get on the road!

Happy Days!!!

It's infuriating! I've just spent an hour, digging the drive out, and now it's snowing again.

Those shots were taken first thing this morning. I dug the car out yesterday & this is what I woke up to. TBH I'm quite enjoying the day off as I went out for a walk earlier which was quite nice. Getting up to date with my decorating as well

Ordered autosocks at the weekend as a just in case. As soon as I hit the 'order button the snow started.
I'm seriously thinking in a set of these as well mytyres.co.uk - Details: Dunlop SP WINTER SPORT 3D 225/50 R17 98H XL with rim protection, AO, M+S marking

I've been clearing snow.... and i'm not joking.... 4 hours a day since last wed.
Alnwicks been hit really hard and the village I live at never see's a gritter.

If I want out I need to do the access road at the side of my house. Of coarse.... no-one ever offers to help. They just wait till I clear it and go.

This was taken by a mate who works in town.

We don't live in the same town and yet we have identical neighbours?

I ache in muscles I didn't know I had, must have shifted tons of snow. And it's still coming down.

Thank God it's December now. One month nearer to Spring.
