Snow

HELP!! Snow, and lots of it is forecast for tonight/tomorrow. I have searched the `net for snow-chains for my wheelchair, but to no avail. Crikey!! Have i found a niche in the market? If any of you would like to fund my latest idea, i`m sure we could arrive at a financial settlement , i.e. 50/50. Or 60/40, as it was my idea.

I'll keep my finger crossed you don't get snow. we haven't on Somerset but we are protected by the sea. Maybe up on Exmoor.

Pat, we`ve nad about 2 1/2 inches, but it`s thawing now. I got to the pub easily enough!

Good! Someone who has always been interested in wheel chairs, and I believe has designed some, is Lord Snowdon aka Anthony Armstrong Jones. He's getting on a bit now but you could drop him a line and see if he can come up with some thing. Nothing ventured...
I googled Lord Snowdon and wheel chairs see below

Pat, thanks, you are kind, i wiil have a look, but the pub is 1 1/2 miles away, and i can`t propel myself 20 yds. Electric chairs are a no go too. John.

Zoe, yes the roads were clear enough for Father to take me.
