Let It Snow, Let It Snow, Let It Snow

The snow, which I'm sure the weathermen promised for yesterday, finally arrived last night. As a result, my twenty minute drive to work from one side of Cambridge to the other took nearer an hour and a half.

The local council and highways agency will be relieved to hear that it wasn't because there was widescale mayhem on the roads. I'd have preferred for the gritters to have been less successful, at least on the lesser used back roads that comprised my route... So rather than main roads through and round the outskirts of the city, I sought out the back roads to Fulbourn, then the back roads to Great Wilbraham, back roads to Quy.... Not quite enough snow, nor enough corners on these long, straight Fenland thoroughfares but still much fun.

So get out in the snow, have some fun and get some practice... just don't ruin the snow that I want to use for practice.

(And in the time that I've taken to write this post the snow has returned with a vengence, I am now being teased in the office about my all-encompassing grin)

Excellent stuff .. but we need to see the pics!!! ;o)

On the subject of practicing your winter 'driving technique', allow me to recommend our overflow car park at work. Not only is it snow covered and empty, but there is layer of mud underneath for that convincing rally-style layer of muck stuck in your wheel arches.

I'll see if I can get a copy of the security video from our office car park then... ;-)
