We were effectively cut-off a couple of weeks ago. There was just a dusting of snowfall, but the problem was more the ice. It had been raining fairly well the day before the temperatures plummeted, so all the local lanes, covered in water running off the fields that day, became glassy surfaces overnight on which any grip at all was hard to find, even just on foot. The salt and grit treated roads were only three miles away, and probably people traveling on them would not have thought there was any problem, but we couldn’t get to them.
This is a hedgerow just opposite my house, with the bracken that had managed to hold on until this time of year now having every frond crisp with frost on the shaded side of the lane.
