It’s been snowing steadily for the last few hours and there’s now a good covering on the ground and on the roads. The main roads were OK on the way back to the house but as soon as I started heading into the Aber valley the roads were pretty bad – I only just managed to get back to the house with some careful driving.

Of course just as I kick my shoes off, the pager goes off. For once it’s a false alarm – random characters, though because I have poor reception here it takes a while to confirm that (thanks Mark!). Either way, it’s been snowing hard and now several of the roads in the area are treacherous to travel. I’m pretty surprised that we haven’t been out tonight at all – although the snow didn’t really hit until quite late giving people the chance to get home and shut the doors and settle down a bit. Speaking with a friend from the ambulance service, he said that the snow’s been keeping people indoors tonight which explains the peace we’re experiencing.

Looking at the snow out there, once the temperature drops overnight I think it’s going to be tough going getting out of here, so unless the snow melts by the morning, I can’t see myself heading into the office. I’ll see how it is in the morning, but at least I can work from home if I need to. I do however wish I was out playing in the snow.
