It’s snowing again …

Posted on: February 6, 2009

Well I should be going to visit clients, but may have to cancel again as it is snowing pretty hard.  Fortunately I don’t have any clients whose babies are imminently due.

Yesterday I saw that Bedford hospital were appealing for any local staff to go in as many staff had been unable to get to the hospital.  I know that Milton Keynes was in a similar position, indeed a relative had an operation cancelled for this reason.

There was a great story in yesterdays Independent newspaper, Peter Cartwright, a radiographer from Ashford in Kent walked 18 miles to get to work at Guy’s Hospital in Central London on Monday – now that is dedication (or madness) for you!  www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/home-news/britain-runs-short-of-grit-as-fresh-snow-is-forecast-1546395.html

I was wondering how you would deal with things in snow like this… I said to Martin earlier I hoped you wouldn’t need to make any mad dashes to labouring clients today!
