Managed to make it back to Londontown, although the journey took about 5 hours. It normally takes an hour.
We are not heading to France, as Eurostar ques are about 8 hours long.
Heathrow’s main terminals are no longer accepting travelers. Although I am hopeful, I do not think I will be home for Xmas. At least I am in good company, and more things are opening now. Most things were closed this weekend.
Britain, especially the south are incredibly unprepared for any type of weather change. It’s actually quite appalling how things are being handled. I don’t feel like going into full on rant mode at the moment, but I will say I had a laugh when on the train today back from Oxford and we were literally packed in like sardines and the bloody rail service managed to push on a tea trolley (which took up about 5 spots) instead of more passengers.
I’ve never heard more people yell obscenities at once.
I guess someone thought that even though the rail cars had no heat, one might fancy lamb and mint crisps.
