Cantley is a village that is virtually cut off.
The main road in - a five mile stretch from the A47 east of Norwich - is kept clear in most weather conditions.
It's a crucial link for dozens of sugar beet lorries every day delivering to the British Sugar factory.
This is not ordinary weather though. More than six inches of snow is being blown off the flat, open fields by high winds straight from Siberia.
It means that as fast as snow ploughs clear the roads they are covered in a fresh layer of the white stuff.
And they've cleared plenty of it. Villagers looked in amazement at it was piled three metres high at the end of Burnt House Road. They haven't seen it like this for 30 years.
There were reports of up to 40 beet lorries being backed up on the B1140 between Cantley and the A47. It was a painfully slow process as they were towed around a bend on the edge of the village one at a time.
There was no way through for ordinary vehicles. Zoe Rope helps run the Heron Lea care home at Postwick. She was trying to get there to relieve staff who are working double shifts caring for the 13 residents.
Yesterday another resident Rob Brown used his 4x4 to pull out an ambulance that was taking a patient to hospital. Today even he hasn't tried to get out.
Cantley is on the Norwich to Lowestoft rail line. But with the trains not running either, the 700 people that live in this Norfolk village are likely to be stuck there for some time yet.
