Packing-up and leaving the winter behind!

Snow, snow and yep you guessed it more snow. The snow although beautiful is starting to hinder us, there are things that need to be done. We are in the process of packing-up and leaving the house we have been renting and putting stuff into storage, personal effects, camping and boat kit and tools mainly. The furniture is going to new homes and I will be mothballing my workshop until we get back from India in March.

Rae and I were hoping to have put stuff into storage already but we cannot as our little road is full of snow and the van will probably get down but will almost certainly not get back up. So we pack, pile up boxes and hope the snow will go. This is not the case according to Michael Fish though, whose weather forecast we saw on the BBC homepage was all doom and gloom, the snow will be here well into next week, well if that be the case then it will defiantly be out with the shovels!

Update on packing-up

Yep, the snow did not go, it even got worse for a while and we ended up having to do rather a lot of digging to get the van in and out of side roads and even into the storage yard! Little did we know if we had been 10 minutes later the snow plough would have carved a clear path through the storage yard gates!! Hey ho such is life. Still we got there in the end and the stress and the pain was eased by having Rae's youngest son, big Adam, Ads to his mates, around to help. Thank you Ads we could not have done it without you!
