Couple buy extra booze ‘in case they’re snowed in’

A COUPLE have added extra alcohol to their shopping trolley in case they are trapped in the house by heavy snow. 

Nathan and Laura Muir, from Stevenage, which forecasters have warned will not get any snow his weekend, believe they are doing the sensible thing.

Nathan said: “No, two bottles of vodka, one of whisky, ginger wine and we may as well get six of prosecco. To be on the safe side.

“I’ll get the beers in. If we don’t need them we don’t need them, but I’d rather do it and be sorry than wish we hadn’t.

“It’s not just Saturday and Sunday, this could carry on well into Monday so we won’t be at work, so we’ve got to plan for that as well. Probably better get some brandy. That’s warming.”

Muir added: “Shit, we’ve forgotten milk. And bread.  It’s too late to go back now. It could start snowing at any point and we could die within seconds.

“Best to get home and make sure this litre bottle of Jack Daniels hasn’t gone off.”
