I hope you're all okay out there


Recommended Posts

Took me 31 hours form Spain to home yesterday. From Madrid to Bilbao -5 degrees, had 4" of snow, but there were literally dozens of snow ploughs/gritters out. 1350 miles from Spain to Calais in 23 hours.

Then of course we have the Uk. Eight hours to do just 300 miles and less snow than in Spain. It would seem to me that the UK don't have gritters. I did not see a single one. I did narrowly avoid a policeman on the A1(M) who bravely tried to flag me down on a steep downhill. He jumped out the way as I slid past. Just round the next bend, still sliding, the central reservation was destroyed and 6' in the air. An artic lorry was protruding from the trees on the left and lying across most of the road. I just managed to slither through a small gap covered with debris!

Back in Teesside. Nearly a foot of snow and still coming down.
