*Insert Dr Zhivago music here*  
Good Lord! What a day...

Well at least I am actually back in my own house. There are apparently plenty people stuck on the roads who are not so fortunate. Not so fortunate as to have a good mate with a 4x4 who left his nice warm house and came to get me and Allan and take us home without even being asked. He just phoned up, said "You'll never get your car back up here. I'll come get you. Get your stuff ready." Luckily by that time Allan had managed to get a train out of Glasgow to meet up with me.

The main roads were all jammed with abandoned vehicles so we had to do it the hard way - the teeny back road, up and over the hill! Highly entertaining. John dropped us off on a road that goes past the top end of our estate (but not into it) and we walked the last stretch.

So in brief- we're home, we're warm and my mate John is a prince amongst men. :)

Ditto what roh_wyn said on both counts!

What a man, that John! A prince, well worth the love in his case! Good you're home!

Yikes!! Awesome that you've got a John to get you guys home, and that you're home now. An adventure every now and then isn't a bad thing, I s'pose, and I'm glad yours has turned out well. :)

Buy that man a drink! What a great friend. Glad you made it to your nice warm home. No work-y tomorrow because of all the snow?

Well done, John!

even if you did just want to show off the awesome power of your 4X4! Hubby had one with a wench and would wait for people to get stuck so he could act the hero. You could see him get excited when it snowed in North Carolina...

I did fear that you'd be stuck over the winter, so I'm glad to hear you got out okay!

I saw the snowed-in drivers on the news. Must be absolutely horrible. And well done to John!
