(Newser) – A group of 47 revelers and storm refugees were finally rescued yesterday after spending two days snowed in at the highest elevation pub in England. Workers plowed through to some 30 students and teachers from nearby Leeds University and 17 stranded motorists holed up in Tan Hill on the Yorkshire-Durham border. The pub reported beer supplies were dangerously low. "Everyone's had a good time," said the manager. "People were peeling carrots and potatoes and helping to make dinner. It was a nice atmosphere."
