Like some sort of weather-mandated vacation, seven people spent eight days snowed in at a British pub. The Lion Inn in North Yorkshire is also a bed and breakfast, so everyone had places to sleep, and the television and internet worked the whole time. It being a pub, there was plenty of beer and food, and they even went sledding on beer trays!
Apparently people were calling the pub asking to be snowed in with them, but one staff member did say towards the end "It's kind of boring now and I would like to go home."
