Stranded!

I can't get home.

A southwester has hit the coastal provinces, and all traffic has ground to a halt. All trains have been stopped, all stations closed by order of the police; and car owners been strongly advised to avoid the motorways for the next few hours.

The storm outside's horrendous. A colleague has just found out that all the windows in his house have caved in. I was offered a lift to The Hague, but now it's been withdrawn, and I don't know how or if I'll get home.

oh no! Stay safe

I t just took me over two hours to get home ( it's a 40 minute trip) because all of my main routes were blocked by fallen trees or lorries which have blown over.

Better to stay where you are and be safe however horrid it is to have to stay at work .

Stay at work? I thought about it for 5 seconds, then decided I'd rather take my chances, and made it home through sheer luck and determination.

It's dark now, but I dread to think what the streets and countryside will look like in the morning when it's light. There's some very creepy, creaky noises going on outside...
