Escape from Froncysyllte

I had ordered a rather large Tesco delivery for last Friday, but due to the snow, it was cancelled.  This left us rather short of supplies - in particular, red wine.  So, as it was an emergency, Dai, our next door neighbour, offered to run Dave into Chirk, as he has a 4X4.
So they dug it out, and off they went..

Bread and milk supplies in the shop were being rationed to 4ltrs milk and one loaf per person.  Never mind the milk - it's the red stuff we wanted - which there was plenty of. 
By yesterday afternoon (Sunday), the roads had been cleared, so Dai took me to a quick trip to Tesco Cefn Mawr, just as it was about to close (we didn't realise it was almost 4pm), so I did a very quick run round, and managed to get a few essentials.  I hadn't left the moorings since the snow started, so it was quite nice to see the outside world!

Looking down to the moorings from our gate.
