    Definitely bringing my work laptop home with me every night in the hope of getting snowed in.

    This is exciting but we will all be bored of snow once the electricity goes out! And we won't be able to dry clothing without the heating ... Sad times are acoming!!

    Revenge better cold... ? who said that earlier? That's a gem.  Anyway, just sit with your arms folded as the windows start pulsating in the blizzard. Then tell hubby he has to go out and get the shopping in. Tell him there is neither beer nor sandwich, nor dinner lol.  Do all that with a very calm, 'I told you so' face. :girl_devil: Whilst you scoff the choc and snack stash when he's not looking.

    It was me that said that.... Looking forward to the sofa hugger's face when behold he opens the sitting room curtains next week and thinks he's in the Alps..... ?????????? I may demote him to vegetable soup whilst daughter and myself dine on stockpiled smoked salmon and rump steak... ?

    Oh yeah! I am also very jealous of the glorious Summers you get. (forgot about that! :rofl:)

    I live in a city but the mountains are just an hour drive away - gin and favourite types of food should do it though! 

    I know everyone in here already knows but this really could be a cold spell that you all talk about for years to come! You are in a big hotspot for some really significant snowfall! (hopefully I have not just jinxed it! :rofl:)

    I have stocked up on stuff. As well as a bit extra of everything, I have:

    2 sliced loaves in freezer

    3 packs of half-baked baguettes

    3 litres long life milk (almond)

    Tinned meat, fruit, puddings, beans, spaghetti

    Plentiful supply of loo rolls.....wouldn't want to be caught short there!

    Batteries for radio and torches

    2 boxes of household candles (and matches)

    Rock salt, de-icer, screen wash, trusty snow shovel

    My freezer and larder are full, but it's all stuff that we can eat afterwards anyway, if we don't get snowed in. We have a Sainsbury's local and a small (and expensive) local shop, otherwise it's about 3 miles to a supermarket.

    Filled up with petrol too.

    I could see an issue with heating though, if power lines come down.

    Let us hope that this is our time but also that everyone stays safe.

    Love to all, from noggin

    I’m really enjoying reading about people stocking up. Just adds to the build up of the upcoming event. Although I don’t think my mum or Dad will do much with 3 supermarkets we can easily walk to.
