  1. :wacko: Two inches since 8am this morning to make a total of 3 inches of snow....eek!
    I am now hoping more than ever that this LO stays put as there is no way we could get to the hospital in this, the roads are just ice with snow over the top!!!
    How bad is it where you are?

    About 2cm but it's coming down quite heavily at the mo. I've just send DH out to move the car to the main road as our house is on a slope and it becomes impassable quite quickly. The snow on top of ice is the real issue as it is fast becoming trecherous.

    I've got a while to go yet and am hoping that LO doesn't decide to make an early entrance - the idea of getting to the hospital doesn't sound fun!

    We have 2-3cm here. It looks like it's about to start again. Last year round our area the snow froze after it had been squished down making it very dangerous. OH has just got back from the shop and the paths are very slippy. Thankfully I am working from home tomorrow, but have to go in on Tuesday. VERY scared of falling on the way to the bus.

    yes we have about 2cm but its coming down thick and fast now, all the main roads have a good covering and there is no sign of a gritter! and i am pretty sure the buses have stopped in our village which is the only thing that usually keeps the roads drivable.....legs firmly crossed lol x

    We've got a fair bit here but it's not settling on our road purely because it's a main one. Ours paths/driveway is pretty thick though! I'm not even sure we'd get our car of the drive in an emergency!

    I'm definitely hoping she holds on for today otherwise somehow, i don't think i'd make it to hospital :lol:

    We had snow fall for about 2 hours last night but it didn't settle. We got about 2 inches on Friday though so it's really icy.

    My OH fell over on a huge patch of ice coming back from the supermarket (it's a 2 min walk!) bless him he landed full force on his knee and it's all swollen!

    I'm hoping we get no more snow for a few days as I'm going into hospital tonight and I'll cry if my OH can't get back to the hospital and misses anything.
     
  13. Still very heavy snow here....probably another inch has fallen since I first posted, envious of those with no snow! I am sending OH out to look at the main road...Im REALLY hoping they have sent the gritters down it again, least if I know the main road is passable then I know a midwife can get here....with a bit of a walk at the end!!!

    Ive just had my first cup of parsley tea and my primrose oil caps, so hoping my lo comes before xmas day. Hospital is about almost 1hr drive on a day like today, even if i have a home birth i don't care any more just fed up now.

    Pretty bad here. Seems we got home just in time. We're virtually on top of a hill too so it's made it really difficult last few days. We could end up stuck up here lol :huh: Not too worried tho cos I've got weeks to go and I reckon my little man has got himself too comfy in there. xx

    I'm glad I won't be needing (hopefully) to go to the hospital atm! We've got about a foot of snow since last night with blizzard condition winds and it's still coming down!

    QIt's snowing off and on here, hubby went out earlier and slid the car into a curb so we have a car with 3 wheels and an egg and a car that only I can drive (that could be funny driving down the motorway having contractions). Just seen the only gritter of the day too so its not fun out there and I have physio tomorrow, eep.
