Not a Bad Week

Really, if your at all like me, wouldn’t this be a dream come true? “Seven people have been trapped inside a pub for nine days after the building was engulfed by 16ft snow drifts. The five staff and two local residents have enjoyed the ultimate lock-in at The Lion Inn in Blakey Ridge, Kirkbymoorside, North Yorkshire.  They have been cut off since last Friday when heavy snow blocked the windows and doors of the isolated Lion – the fourth-highest pub in England – and made surrounding roads too treacherous for any vehicles to pass.  The snow was so deep that vehicles in the car park were completely buried.  But despite their ordeal, the spirits of those trapped have remained high. They have kept themselves busy – eating, drinking and playing games – in a huge bar that normally serves 150 customers a night.”
