Our new verge markers arrived today (see a previous post). We shall have to wait until the ground thoroughly thaws before we dig them in. So far the various authorities have been particularly unhelpful in this matter. If the local authrities do not like our verge markers perhaps they will then galvanise themselves to produce their own???

Doormats Come To the Rescue
A very strange day today. At the moment (11am) it is -4C we have frost, dense fog and suddenly snow. I do not think I have ever witnessed fog and falling snow at the same time before. Very slippery (especially for wonky knees) so Husband and I used two doormats each as stepping stones, picking up the mat behind us as we went, to reach the garage. Main roads are OK to drive on but I decided to not go swimming because this meant driving on untreated country lanes.
