    I love snow, dont get me wrong, but Im now snowed in with 2 feet of snow up my road. Why cant they get the council to clear it? I am disabled as well as diabetic, need a wheelchair to get about and no one can deliver any food. Have phoned the council and social services and they are doing their best to help me out. I dont hold out much hope though.
    Sorry for the rant. Just upst and worried.

    Hi sue,
    unfortunately no family and dont know my neighbours. Will have to ask them if I get desperate.
    I phoned my local shop and they have hardly anything in anyway. Supermarket is 1 1/2 miles away.
    Someone from social services is phoning me back soon (hopefully) to let me know if they can help.

    They brought the food within 2 hrs and said if I need anything else to ring. They are wonderful.
