Snow
« on: January 31, 2019, 06:56:16 PM »
I just made it back to Devon from Swindon this evening. All good except the last 4 miles getting up onto Dartmoor to my house. Traction control won the day, just, and got my work VW Transporter home. No chance of work tomorrow ,snowing heavy and icey.
I expect  this is very amusing to all our continental  members !

I would have been ok, I had a pot noodle and a flask of hot water.
Stay warm.  :062:
My name is Rob.

As an anecdote to this post: AA and RAC advice
Prepare yourself so;
I allowed extra time – I got up earlier to allow much longer for the journey times.
I wore warm clothes and comfortable shoes.
I also had a coat, hat, gloves, sturdy boots, a blanket to keep me warm in case I do get stuck.
I took some food, chocolate, biscuits, water and a hot drink..
I carried a fully charged mobile, and some old bits of carpet, some cat litter, rock salt and a shovel to clear snow.

I felt so stupid sitting on that bus!!

 :047: I laughed so hard I nearly spat out all my porridge over the wife. Very funny. I can still only get out in my old Landrover. Dam snow.
