if you have a half mile private drive, i would think you could invest in a snow plough

Looks gorgeous (shame it's fecking cold & wet too ).

My inlaws live in a small hamlet along a mile long private road. About 200yards is flanked with dry-stone-walls and 2, if not 3, years ago the snow filled the 6 foot high 'trench'. They were stranded for a whole week until a local farmer took pity on them and dug them out. We're supposed to be meeting them on Sunday for a family meal - we'll see

It's private to the other five houses and the main court

Built a snowman with my three year daughter and enjoying the time with my newborn but its beautiful with a thick layer of snow on everything.

Plenty of heavy snow here.

As it's snowing, perhaps a trip down memory lane

Now, shall I film the missus or whoever having trouble in the snow for a laugh or go down and help? What's it to be?

2 points.

The guy could have helped, lots of people struggle in the snow, especially older cars. It's not hard to lend a hand.

She is an idiot. Scraping under the front wheels? Seems to not have a grasp of friction or momentum either!
