Well, my last day in the Office was 18th December, and I was snowed-in, and had to work-from-home. Was an interesting way to spend the last day finalising all of my year-end bits and bobs...pretty funny actually!! We then had a nice Christmas and New Year break, and then went into January 2010 thinking it was just be Business-As-Usual. Well kinda...

It started with a great first couple of days, great catch-ups, and moving forward stuff. Then, we started to receive interesting news...well weather warnings actually that a severe snow front was heading for the SE of the UK...and, they weren't wrong. As of Tuesday, 5th January evening, a plentiful covering of snow came down from about 8pm continuously for about 5-6 hours. In fact by the time I went to bed at 11pm, there was already about 3-inches of snow on the floor (outside of course, you know what I meant!).

When I woke up, I opened the curtain and almost a foot of snow had landed (about 10 inches initially). BUT the snow hadn't snowed continuously throughout Wednesday...and by the day had ended, there was a over a foot in the front, and slightly less at the back. Madness! I've never seen anything like it, well I've seen snow but not this much in such a short space of time, and twice in 2 weeks! I was pretty much snowed in, there was no hope to get around. I actually had to re-stock supplies (Guinness, Milk, Break, Salad etc...) and the road leading to Sainsbury's wasn't gritted or was that treacherous! I knew it could only get worse before it could get better...after the snow, there is the icy conditions and then the thaw. That meant we had another few days of this rubbish! Arghhh!!!

Well, work has to continue, so whilst some people were "off-work" around the UK, some of us office folk continued to work on our laptops and blackberry (in between the odd power cut, we suffered). Luckily, work was at a moderate level, so it wasn't too bad, but still unfortunate that I couldn't go out and fully enjoy it, until the late afternoon or evenings!

On Saturday, I went to my parent's place in the other side of the town and dug the car out (again, I must add)...this time there was a foot of snow ON TOP of the car, and over a foot on the ground. This time, the neighbours had already tasked themselves to dig two trenches in the road to enable us to reach the tarmac beneath the snow and ice, and actually had obtained some grit to help in the process. I then ensured that our drive way was clear and that my mum's car had enough space to manoeuvre. Hard work indeed! But actually quite good fun!

So we have survived the snow (just about), now I am just expecting the flood warnings to be announced during the big thaw - ha!
