    I've dug my way out of the house, through the snow and am opening up the cafe.

    We've got no power in our village and it's not supposed to be back on until this evening. It's sooooo cold and can't even make a coffee :(

    Thankfully there's a wood stove here, it's lovely and warm and the coffee is flowing...

    Been worried about power outages too Lu now that Storm Emma has joined forces with the Beast from the East. I've got heating on full blast and am still shivering. I just read that the UK has only a 15 day supply of gas reserves, compared to about a year in the US. Glad for the woodburning stove. I can actually feel the heat!

    Last year I flew into Svalbard, the most northerly airport in the world. It was -35° and thick snow. The plane landed with no problems on the snow covered runway. We get three flakes here and everything stops :eek:

    Omg, can't bear to imagine what that's like. I'm fully dressed, under a duvet with a thick fleece blanket on top and still can't stay warm. Wish I had one of those bearded beanies.

    The army has been drafted in to rescue stranded drivers in some areas, and ferry medical staff to and from hospitals. And its going to get worse!

    I saw you guys' "snow" on the news and was laughing cause when you guys ask if it snowed here and it looks like that outside I say "no", because that's not "snow", that's a flurry or a dusting. I don't know. It's gotta be SNOW for me to say it's SNOWED. Lightweights.

    I NEED those!

    It is bad though... hundreds of drivers have been stranded in snow overnight on major roads, with gusts of wind of up to 90mph battering down on them as well.

    Thanks lulabelle. Warmth definitely needed today. Cold rainy. And my feet and legs are presently wet almost to my knees. And I was just wishing I'd find a way to warm up and there it was, your invitation. I love pancakes so I'll be happy to be persuaded to make a few batches. I didn't want to go to work anyway.

    Hi @Lulabelle , thanks for opening up. It all looks fabulous especially the gorgeous venues, @Ash600. To continue the borrowing theme ... I figured I might try and borrow some stars for us all - there will be plenty to go round. Have a peaceful day everyone xx

    Thanks for the invite, @Lulabelle. I brought pan dulce[​IMG]

    Was going to complain about the cold, but you’ve all reminded me how lucky I am to live in southern California. Hope everyone has an awesome rest of the day.
