Weather report
Continuing the theme of changeability, the weather here was distinctly warmer today (3.5 deg C according to the car). The roads seem fine, well salted and gritted, but the problem is the little bits off the main roads, side roads and car parks and such. Anyway, I made it safely out of our car park and drove to the Co-op to replenish supplies. We now have food for another 3 or 4 days. More snow is forecast and I'm worried about travelling up to North Wales to visit my Dad on Tuesday. Not so much about the visit to Dad because that's main roads all the way, but in the morning, we are supposed to be shooting more scenes for the video we're doing of the Welsh drama we've been working on for so long. The house where we are filming is up a tiny lane and then up another hill in a new housing estate.

Anyway, we'll see how things develop weatherwise and just have to play it by ear.

The forecast snow never materialised and it was fine driving up to North Wales today. Temperature is up and down though and I have no idea whether I'll make it to South Wales at the weekend to see our granddaughter perform in a little show. Just have to play it by ear. :)

We had a BIG dump of snow yesterday- 12 hours worth and I'm waiting on hearing from himself whether he's made it into work.

Days like this make me appreciate the fact that I work from home!

I don't have to go anywhere for a while now. Thankfully the forecast snow never materialised and it was fine driving up to North Wales today.

My travel plan involves another trip to Aberystwyth - also tomorrow - in the afternoon. It looks as of the main roads are okay. No short cuts & I ought to be okay.

It's supposed to be about 'necessary' journeys, which can be a difficult one to call. We all have out own ideas about what constitutes crucial. My appointment tomorrow feels vital! :)

Good luck going to see your dad & for the filming!

As you can see from my latest post, I made it to the filming OK. The main roads are perfectly clear and the little lane to Ged's house had also been cleared, so we could get to the house where we were filming without any problems.

My Dad phoned to tell me not to visit today, so I decided that any benefit from my visit would be outweighed by all the fretting he would do at the thought of me driving, so I came straight home after we'd finished filming.
