It snowed!

It snowed some more!

It snowed a lot more!

The snow fell all night and into much of the morning. And lo, the village was completely cut off. The A702 road was shut for about three days. The snow drifts were half way up peoples front doors. Shops ran out of food, the power went off for a day and a half because the lines came down and shock horror… the pub could only sell bottled beer or spirits since the pumps were electric. It was fun though and the Dunkirk spirit kicked in.
