You just don't get far in this

Even though the ice had been broken yesterday it is now double the thickness in places where it has overlapped and frozen solid again. The boat that passed us yesterday as expected is moored just round the corner and in a worse situation as he couldn't get right into the bank due to the ice.
It is very pretty on the trees with all the frost around and the minus three's we are getting. Everyone round here is getting panicky as they are getting low on water but Derwent6 still has half a tank......Oh the joy of a big tank in situations like this.............
Al's mum is still in hospital but they will be looking at getting her more physio this week to get her moving again. The good news is that they have found the problem which caused the seizure, being a furring of the arteries in the brain, which she can take drugs for that will prevent it happening again. It won't however improve her memory loss. She still may be out this week, fingers crossed!!

Still we're all very Christmassy on Derwent6 and it cheers us up a bit.....
Del in the evening went up the pub because he fancied some chips with a pint and was talking to some other boaters in there. Everyone seems to be struggling, with water being the biggest problem, but we seem to be OK at the moment.
