I have just been out for a look around the lane. It is a strange situation – I can see tarmac in front of my car – and there is hardly any snow at that corner of the house, but down the driveway there is at least six inches. The lane to the main road is 6+ inches deep. I gave up after 50 metres, as I would probably have had a heart attack before being able to clear that much snow – no point to check much further (around the steepest part of the lane, on a tight corner).
I got new tyres on the car on Monday, but it is only a FWD car, so I do not think that I will be able to make it in tomorrow.
I will have a go in the morning, (I have a healthy and fit 16 year old lad stuck here!) but given the extension of the red status warning for Cavan and Monaghan, I doubt that I will make it.?
Serious apologies for anyone needing to collect spectacles, and the 10.00am appointment – a young 8 year old who was off school anyway – many local schools were going to be having a training day tomorrow.
Who knows! Maybe the wind will blow the snow away, like at the house, but I doubt it.
Sorry for the inconvenience, but at this stage I do reckon that the week is a complete write off?
Perhaps I should post a note if I AM there on Saturday?
If either of the Driving Sight Test appointments did manage to arrive Thursday evening, I am sorry we were not there – but it was a Status Red!
Apologies – no way I could make it.
