I've just moved to a town that often gets cut off for a couple of days when snow hits - only 10 mins from my old house, but with a peculiar microclimate all of its own. We're very near the main road out to Sheffield though so I am optimistic that we'll be the first to be released and I won't have to eat the animals to survive. The springer is bony... It was -3 when I was out feeding the birds. Up to a balmy +1 now. I'm glad I work from home. Log burner is doing its thing... Stay warm!
