and the county grinds to a halt! Yes, we woke up this morning to about 2 inches of snow. I absolutely hate driving in it, but got up as usual, showered, dressed (not in my work suit I admit, but in jeans and a very warm jumper!), had breakfast and then went out to clear the car. As fast as I cleared the snow off, the falling snow was covering it again! Hugh cleared the drive for me and I eventually set off, very, very slowly. The traffic was all going between 7 and 12 mph, which I was quite happy with. However, I went about half a mile and decided that I really did not want to go any further, it was far too risky, the roads were horrid and anyway, travelling at an average of about 10mph meant it would take me at least 2 hours to get to work!
So, I turned around and came home.
And couldn't get the car up the drive! There is only a small bump up, but we always have trouble with it. A quick toot on the horn and Hugh came out and drove it up for me - what a lovely hubbie.
I then had Ben on the phone from Plymouth where he had no snow. He loves snow and is very disappointed not to have any, so I went into the garden for him and took these photos:
