Last night we went out for a bar snack at the Plough at Upper Boddington, after a lovely meal we couldn't believe how much the snow had drifted whilst we were in the pub and then we still decided to go the hilly way back, rather than the safe option... We love a challenge but it probably was a bit daft as we got completely stuck in a snow drift. Even though our car is 4 x 4 it was just too deep to go either backwards or forwards. Slightly embarrassing, but we phoned some local farmer friends who found it very funny as Doug rather prides himself on never getting stuck. They came along and gave us a lift back as we were too stuck to tow out. Later on that night they very kindly came back with a digger and dug the car out, which was just as well as it would have been completely buried if we had left it for the night.
It should be beginning to thaw out by Monday, which is just as well as we are beginning to get very low on food, hay and straw for the horses.
