Hi

Following on from yesterday's blog, Mari did arrive home and three and a bit hours later than she should have. Of course angry passengers "blame" the Company involved and am sure at times what TOC it is has no valid reason for some of the decisions and breakdowns, but when faced with a severe prolonged icy and snow filled period, I genuinely think they do a grand job.

We jumped out for an hour this morning, a balmy minus 1 deg, and light snow, within five minutes still a balmy minus 1 but a wind whipped up and boy did the snow come down. It remained that way for hours, we drove very carefully to a local duck pond, totally frozen and snow bound no ducks. A few shots there and down to the seafront, blizzard blowing away we took a few shots and then raced to the car. I had to deliver Mari to the local station as she was due for work, Mari who had been given a full shiftload of work managed a third of it before her bosses decided she could leave... After all the train were at a standstill.....

The snow has brought parts of Kent to a total standstill, M20 and local roads partially or fully blocked. Trains stopped and a few stranded.We plan to TRY and have a day out tomorrow, as the market will not be on, or at least that is how it looks at present. Brockhill and/or Pegwell Bay here we come.

You who take the time to read this stay safe and warm


Till next time
