Snow, Dentist, Plumber [Jan. 6th, 2010|09:14 am]
Douglas Spencer
Bah, not half as much snow as we were promised. Hmph.

Last night I went shopping, to buy one loaf of bread, one pint of milk, a small handful of assorted vegetables and a bit of fish.
As a result of panic buying by morons, they had no bread, no milk, and two vegetables (a half a swede and a small butternut squash). Barrowmen *shakes fist* Grrr! No problem with the fish, though. So I bought the vegetables and a bit of fish, and then marvelled at the checkout queues.

The plan today was that I would go and see the dentist, and then the plumber would come and see me.

The dentist just phoned to cancel, I fully expect the plumber to do the same later. In only about five inches of snow. Hmph, as I said earlier.

About six inches here.
I went to the co-op last night for food; they similarly had no bread and no milk. Apparently the huge 24-hour Tesco up the road had none either. Quite bizarre really.

My local Tesco has been very Soviet-era also, with empty shelves and seemingly endless queues at the tills.

Coincidentally, I also have a dentist's appointment for today. But so far no phone call to say it's cancelled. so it looks like no last-minute reprieve for me. I shall shortly be donning my boots and venturing out into the frozen wastes.

I may be gone for some time. ;)
