The roads in our village are impassable, and I've been unable to get down the ungritted lanes to work this morning. To make things worse we live at the top of a hill so you can imagine how treacherous the roads are.
Both of my daughters' schools are closed, along with most others in the area. Ironically, the school where I work is open - and I'm the only member of staff unable to get there, even though I live closer to the school than most of my colleagues. Embarassing, huh?
After reading news reports that this is likely to be the coldest winter for 100 years, I'm waiting for someone - anyone - to convince me about global warming. I want to believe, really I do, but I'm too blinkin' cold right now.
