Snow affects Fighting 15s

The Isle of Wight is currently experiencing its worst snow for years, and a number of key services are shut, including the Island’s Royal Mail sorting offices. In short, orders are unlikely to be dispatched over the next few days: even though Ian can get to the Broadway Inn in Totland (which also acts as a post office) on foot, orders will get no further than that.

Please also give a thought to Ian’s wife Janet and daughter Gemma who are currently marooned on the other side of the Island until the roads can be cleared and gritted. On the positive side, Gemma has had snow for her 16th birthday and has been out making a snowman. Both Janet and Gemma are safe and are staying with friends.

If the UK’s sunshine island is hit by snow, you can gather conditions are even worse elsewhere.

The actual situation in Fighting 15s’ part of Freshwater isn’t that bad – no more than half an inch of snow, but conditions are deteriorating.
