Welcome back! Too bad you had to leave your wonderful job, but you'll find something else I'm sure.

Thanks everyone. We're ok. Edinburgh was buried under 2 feet of snow, but we got away with only the one foot where we live. It was still enough to prevent us getting out of our road by car. Blackford Hill, where I work at the observatory, was knee deep in snow. No vehicles could get up the hill, and you couldn't even park within a mile. I managed to get to work once this week by walking to the train station, catching a train to Edinburgh, taking a taxi as close to the hill as he could get and then hiking through the snow the rest of the way. It wasn't worth it, so I have been working from home the rest of the time. We finally managed to dig the car out today and get some shopping done. It was good to get out of the house. Phew!

P.S. I took some pictures of the snow on Blackford Hill with my mobile phone during my trek to work. I'll post some for anyone curious.

P.P.S. Lanen says our biggest danger was of an overdose of turkey. We got stuck just after our Thanksgiving dinner, so there was lots of turkey left. We've had turkey almost every day since.

Hiya folks - thanks for worrying about us, but we're doing fine. I've had a dose of the Ick (TM) and have been on antibiotics for a while, so fuzz-brained and not up to posting much. Wish I had taken a photo of Steven, Hans. Will do when we next get dumped upon from the heavens!
