Drove to Edinburgh yesterday- anyone else blocked by snow?


Recommended Posts

Got congested on the A1 so took a diversion on the A66 West, which was dodgy and as yet no radio traffic reports.

 

It was blocked by Police at Brough, so we turned around and tried to reach Darlington via the back roads and A167 to get back to the A1- very risky (and each road shut!).

 

Finally, we reached the A1 and - as it was clear up North we reached Edinburgh.

 

On the return journey (A1 all the way south) it was q.clear until we got to the M1 at leeds!

 

I'm glad I didn't stay over until today!

My sister lives on the moors between Halifax and Bradford and they've got snow deep enough to completely hide the furniture in the garden today. In places it's almost as deep as my 6 year old nephew. Not surprising to say that nobody is able to get their car out there today.

No, stupid, to share stories about people either blocked in, or those who have to continue working? I expected idiots to post also, though.

Yes it was /is really bad out there, we almost got caught out by the weather ourselves!

Because if you know what you are doing it's not problematic.

 

 

what did I say?

Ordinarily listening to people talk about going to work isn't that interesting but I suppose it's credible that with snow on the ground it might become so, let's see what happens :D
