Snow and Rain and stuck on a Train!

I am Exhausted
This morning I travelled in the car for over an hour in the driving, skidding snow. At one point I thought I would have to abandon the car, at another point I thought I would skid off a hill, and another I thought I would crash into the River as the brakes were NO USE. When I got home, Junior and Junior Jnr were happy to play out in the snow and make snowmen or to be precise a Snowman. Still no camera - heres last years Snowman!
I made soup - my all round winterwarming soup
Next I hear my husband (HWWM&S - He who wears Marks and Spencer!) is stuck on a train somewhere outside Manchester. The next I heard the train got into Wigan Northwestern Station.
Could you book me a hotel for tonight ? Somewhere central, easy to get to ?
Apparently his work booked him into somewhere in Preston - good going given that most of the major roads are CLOSED. On the Knitting front - I found a dropped stitch in my Ribbon TWIST card - I've been calling it Ribbon print, numpty that I am. There is nothing for it but to frog it back to the start of the arm shaping. Still the brittany wooden DPNS are great, no slippage at all.

You clearly need to move north to sunny Glasgow - all our snow's gone !
