    Snowed off work today.

    Couldn't even get the van out of the drive.

    I am just going to have to do something else with my enforced spare time.

    The wife is even shouting at me to get off the computer.

    I think I will just go out and make snow angels. Evil or Very Mad

    Something similar here mate.

    With the constant snow over the past three days the drive downhill to my home is totally unpassable.

    I managed to get out to the doctor's yesterday before the heavy overnight snowfall and I found that the torque connected to the leaf electric motor drive is great in snow. It seems to know when I want to wheels to turn slowly so that they avoid spinning.

    No such luck today, as although the car is in a garage the snow has drifted into my driveway and it is five feet to eight feet deep in places.

    Big dig out job for later on today.

    Although I could have made it to the school where I work it was still closed by the local authority.

    I would hope things will be back to normal by Monday.

    Yes, me too Angie.

    I spent about three hours moving the drifts away from my garage and cutting two paths along the driveway for my car wheels yesterday, only for it to snow a bit more and then freeze.

    Back to work tomorrow, as most of the snow and ice has disappeared with the rise in temperatures and the rain.

    Yes, even up here in Scotland the roads are already back to normal.

    I find it quite amazing how a bit of rain and a small rise in temperature can get rid of the great piles of snow.
