Day of Dire Driving

Drove back today. Well, I say drove. More like crawled. The roads were packed. The roads were wet. The roads were slippery. It took us a shade under 8 hours to get back, which is a long time to spend in a tin box, however shiny. We did stop off to see family, and take on provisions, but even so it was not a fun trip. By the end the weather was throwing everything it could in our direction, as was a passing gritting lorry (I hope that part of the car is still shiny).

We stopped for a bite to eat and got another nice sunset.


Literally five minutes after this shot was taken you couldn't see in that direction at all for a snowstorm. But while it lasted the sunset did provide a nice light:


Finally we made it back to our little house and collapsed into bed.
