Thanks for the update, Jason.

the Cheshire CL where we're based is very beautiful and there's a lovely little pub across the field so it'll still be a great Christmas.
Biggest loss is not being in the hills. Miss them terribly! Cheshire is lovelly, but my God it's flat! ;D

Where is that CL? I could well be looking for one not too far away from next Spring onwards.

just a thought, something like 15,000 tons of salt used and maybe more to come. When the thaw comes, how much will the environment be affected by the salt washing down streams and fields etc.?

It'll kill a lot of plant life,  that's for sure. And there's also the tons of grit.

MY OH has just read in the paper that animals who walk on the gritted roads and pavements can be very ill or die from Anti-Freeze poisoning.
Sounds awful, must be careful with Frizzy's paws.

I don't think Anti-freeze is used on roads and pavements.  It is normally reserved for Car cooling systems and Italian Wine.             L0L

The anti freeze I think they mean is the stuff they put in de-icer sprays. The stuff in car radiators is ethylene glycol.Car de-icer sprays are often methanol. Shouldn't fancy swallowing either !

The rock salt used on roads/pavements can also irritate dogs paws etc.

Which is why it is important to wash your pet's feet and any other vulnerable parts when you have been out in such weather.      D)
