For once the weather forecasts were accurate and we had snow last night, lots of it, so we woke up this morning to discover our road virtually impassable. Living on an estate means we have to travel on two side roads before we can access anything like a main road. Our local authority doesn’t believe in treating side roads so we are left to do so ourselves.
Father Martin rang very early and suggested that we didn’t attempt to travel to St. Augustine’s as the roads in Rush Green were difficult and dangerous. So we celebrated Mass at home and then set about trying to clear the cars and our drive and some of the road outside our house. It seems we have had about 12 inches of snow. Several of our neighbours were out doing the same but the problem is going to be some of the other local roads where absolutely nothing has been done.
