It has been another unwintery winter, at least until today when I opened the curtains to a very white car park that the night before had been the main road past our house.
Where it came from I’m not sure as it was simply raining hard when I went to bed and not especially cold. And it has showed no sign of stopping, well not until mid-afternoon.
We’ve had about three or four inches of the white stuff which isn’t much compared to other parts of the world, but here it is enough to close schools and make roads impassable. I was meant to take my dad for a hospital appointment first thing, but that had to be cancelled and the helpful woman on the phone told me it had taken her an hour to complete her usual five minute drive to work.
Mrs P also had an appointment this afternoon, although this was was to get her nails done. The roads were clear by then, but she couldn’t get her Smart car off the drive, so she ended up walking there with the dog in tow.
As it was, Mrs P picked up some pizzas while on her trek, so the dog can stop eyeing the roasting tin so suspiciously, at least until tomorrow.
