This morning the snow here is so thick that no one can get their cars off the street. Mark, Kev and Rob had to get the bus to Asda this morning instead of going in Rob's car, and I have no idea if I'll be able to pick them up at the end of the day!
More snow is forecast for the rest of the day, with sub-zero temps tonight. I've suggested that if the roads are clear at the end of tomorrow that we head straight to my mums tomorrow night instead of waiting till the morning. Mark'll have to do his last minute shopping in Burnley. At least that way we'll be a bit closer to the In-Laws and wont have as far to drive in one go.
It's crossed my mind that maybe we wont get out of Lancaster! Which is a bit of a worry as we don't have anything that would pass as a Christmas Dinner here - apart from the pud and other sweets we bought to take to Jenny's. Christmas day here - just the 3 of us - wouldn't feel like Christmas. It'd just be another day, with presents. Don't fancy that! Mark suggested he buy a roast, just in case. It can always go in the freezer for another day....
I do still want a White Christmas, but I want the roads to be clear enough to get to where we're going too!
