More white stuff

More pictures taken on my walk to the local post office this morning as the car is not a good idea at the moment in our village as you can see by the pictures below, there is still no post going in or out of the village or bus, if this goes on any longer I am going to have to walk to the super market which is 3 miles away as our little Post Office/shop is nearly empty of supplies all I could get was milk,toilet rolls,frozen chicken portions and some flour, I don't have a lot either in my freezer or store cupboard, hope this weather improves soon or I might have to eat the OH.

This is a picture taken coming down the 1 in 4 hill to the village the back way into St Lawrence shute

View from top of my garden down over our house

View from my balcony out to sea

Because I am shut up indoors today I though I would do some cleaning which just turned into a quick dust a site down the a quick hoover then another site down and a cuppa, nothing much to write so after loading up these pictures I'm just going to have another sit down find a good film and get my knitting out .

The white stuff has been falling in St Lawrence on the Isle of Wight since yesterday tea time and has truly changed this island to Isle Of White, I look out to sea (2 min walk) and it is a beautiful sight at any time and with the snow falling it puts a magical touch to it (see pics below), this has made our Island come to a stand still ferries cancelled buses and trains in chaos, I have lived here 23 years and not seen the like, it took my sons partner from 6 o'clock tea time to 1 o'clock in the morning to travel 5 miles home, she had not taken her mobile phone with her so no news as to where she was till 10 o'clock when she had found a friendly person with a phone to let her phone home all that time she had been helping others on her drive home dig out their cars and give them a push to help them on there way, what a credit to the human race she is.
