Just about to set off to Italy to spend Christmas with Neil when yet another blizzard turns the UK into a film set for Ice Age 3. Having chosen, just for once, to fly British Airways from Heathrow instead of Ryan Air from Stansted, I watched in horror as both Heathrow and Gatwick closed! British Airways flights all cancelled, even if passengers could reach the airports. Unlikely, since nearly half the trains in the UK are either cancelled or delayed and the roads are impassable. Apparently it could take 48 hours to get back to normal.
Will there be any trains tomorrow? Will there be any planes? Watch this space. I will probably be doing the same!
