It's bloody freezing here in England, I just arrived back home from Rhodes. Right now I am tucked up in bed with a hot water bottle, lots of blankets and a duvet. I'm still quite cold.
It's good to see that things are heading in the right direction. Any sort of progress should be viewed as a positive, and I'm sure things will pick up soon.
I can't imagine having to drive an hour to just get fuel. Nothing like that will ever happen here in the UK, so I guess we are fortunate. From all accounts I've heard, East Coasters are coping well, so it's looking a lot better than a few days ago.
