Even more Snow!




Today I had to take my friend to hospital in MK - we were supposed to be there for around 7:45 - so we set off at 7:15 (a bit later than intended but they had assured my friend that we didn't need to be there that early in the end!) We arrived at 8:15...it wasn't snowing when we left but was soon becoming quite a blizzard by the time we arrived....I then waited until 9:15 as the Doctor hadn't arrived. BUT all was well and she had arrived - so I went off to work.

The first pic is of my journey in MK from the hospital - although it was pretty much like that all the way..





However the journey home was much better - I did leave at 2:15 as they were threatening more snow, I followed the gritter lorry with a snow plough attached to the front up to the motorway.





The final picture is the hill down into our estate - a little hair raising driving on the slush...and the last piece of my journey was completed with the aid of two men and two shovels - as my little car was having none of being put back on the drive.....

Wow Carolyn, those first pics look a bit trecherous!

Hope you don't get too much more, some places have it real bad don't they.
