I don’t have pictures, as I’ve been too ill to venture outside other than to get into my car to drive to work, but it’s been snowing again. As much as I love it and would love to be out in it, it has caused a few problems, work-wise.
Our office has remained open and despite living a long way from my workplace and without the means to travel via public transport, my colleague and I have been expected to drive in during some rather difficult conditions. It’s even more frustrating for me, as I live on a property wherein the drive, which starts from the private road, is downhill and several hundred yards of winding path, making the ride to the gate (after a night of snow and freezing conditions) a bit of a bumper car ride, but without any real steering capability. Once off the private road, it’s onto a country lane that doesn’t always get gritted, and, today, I went from one hedgerow bank to the other and back again, several times, having taken a particularly tight bend are more than 5 miles an hour (don’t tell me I should have known better). I was extremely lucky there wasn’t any oncoming vehicle for me to total.
Oh well. Given the snow has settled for a while and is subzero temperatures again tonight, I am sure to hit ice all the way home. The best bit is the downhill runs on curves … really looking forward to those.
