Better weather the perfect gift
THOUSANDS of families are waiting anxiously to see if there will be empty chairs around the table this Christmas Day. It is a horrendous time for all concerned and we must pray the weather relents.
Christmas is all about family time and the thought of loved ones stranded in a cold airport or having to turn back on their homeward journey is enough to spoil the celebrations.
For now there is hope. Snow and ice teams are working around the clock here and especially in Britain. But we should get used to the colder climate and make preparations.
