This is quite challenging and we are treating very seriously this 'cold snap' and what it could do to us. We have not been out in the car since Thursday, but luckily we did heed the weather warnings, and did a very big shop on Wednesday, including things for Christmas Day (although we hope we are not snowbound until then) so we have enough provisions in, which takes the pressure off.
We are also blessed by very good neighbours, who from far and wide have checked in on us and offered assistance - really touching considering we are only newcomers.
There are no gritter or snow machines out here to clear the roads, however a massive 'Tonka Toy' loader came up yesterday and dumped a big pile of salt and grit for us to self administer on the roads.
In the Mobile it is possible to get warm enough - especially when there is a big roast in the oven- a great excuse!
Eleanor's well-being is of course our focus, and thank goodness, she is continuing to thrive, and delight us all.
