The wife has informed me that it is bad at home and not to risk coming home might be stopping longer than planned

I Bulgaria March is called the womens month, because it is so unpredictable, only a man could have come up with that. We had -24 on the 1st March and +16 or so two days later, we have had sun and rain, then more sun up to 26 degrees and now it's raining again with cold to come. I don't think this is what you would expect in southern England at this time of year and I feel very sorry for all those that made the effort, it is enough to put anyone off the hobby

I know they can make it with machines and resort have them but I believe up to mid to late January there had been very little in the way of natural snow, then it fell for days in Feb and melted, odd year all round.

It was the same here today Neil but it's melting quickly. My road has more or less cleared having been 2" deep in snow this morning. 

You will get home without any problems today or tomorrow
