Snow Away !!

snow

Winter Wonderland – ok we have had lots of fun,  now will you please go so that we can get on with our life. :-)

It didn’t help that i happened to be travelling home in the worst snowfall in 30 years.  My friend and i had been visiting the historic town of Bath and the snow fall was so bad we had to abandon the car and walk back to the nearest town, so eerie walking through  deserted streets looking for a place to stay … all the pubs were like the Marie Celeste – the poor landlords making no money that night. The places to be where it was all happening were the hotels … and the church halls – the hotels were all booked up with fellow travellers …  we finally got a room on the edge of the town  Picture 1659We were so grateful to get a room and the view from our bedroom was pure picture postcard.

However we still had to get home the roads were  impassable – so headed off to get a train.Picture 1661

Was it ever going to come,  we managed to catch one of the few trains going our way –  there was a lot of hold ups and at one point we hit a tree but  all was ok and  we continued on with the journey, there were some great views

Hi Ginny,
Didn't realise you had been in my neck of the woods! The snow really was something, wasn't it?...but like you I am pleased to see it gone...too many things to be getting on with...glad that your little one had fun though.

Have a great snow-free week,
Niki x

so did you ever get your car back from where you left it?

Yes my friend went back with her father and found the car buried in snow. The moral of the story is always take heed from news reports of people rushing to buy up stocks of cat litter .... ask yourself ... why? LOL
