Hochanda are shutting up live shop at 7.30pm tonight due to the dreadful conditions where they are based. Crafters Companion have a message on their website saying Royal Mail and DPD are having trouble making deliveries and to be patient.
The snow really started to come down here around 4pm. Came out of my office st 5pm and I'm the only bugga left on the 1st floor! Decided to call it a day and head home. Journey is only 3 or 4 miles but the snow isn't as bad at home as it was at work. But it is starting to come down here now. Just given Harvey his tea so he's had that and gone out into the blizzard!! Barmy.
As I mentioned on another thread, I went to the dentist in sunshine and came out in a blizzard. Luckily it only lasted for about 15 minutes. It's currently minus 6 here so any snow that falls during the night won't melt. My son goes off to work at 5.30 a.m. and I've told him to take spare underwear, a toothbrush and toothpaste with him (a typical mum-like suggestion) in case he can't get back tomorrow evening and has to stay in a hotel round the corner from his office. Tomorrow is apparently going to be the worst day for us all because the snow storm and strong winds are due to arrive. I can see my staying here this weekend as Ooop North has about 4 - 6 inches of the white stuff apparently but I'm praying for a heatwave (namely above zero) so it melts. 😉
