White Mountain Road
We got up this morning to a light dusting of snow and watched the news and weather with a morning cuppa and they said passing snow showers in our area but nothing but light showers,
I set off for the craft club while hubby waited for a delivery before heading back to work.
At the craft club I was showing them how to make butter, we had toast on and the kettle was boiling when we noticed the snow coming down, it continued to fall getting heavier, one of the mums got a call from the playgroup to collect her child as the roads were getting difficult so I decided its best I head home as I had to go over the mountain, the snow was laying on the road they hadnt gritted, and I joined a line of traffic at the bottom of the hill and noticed they were all turning round, I had to go on as it was my route home, as I went to turn onto the mountain road two men flagged me down and advised me not to continue, but it was the only route home so on I went a safe speed.
This was the view out of the windscreen, It was a beautiful sight.
As I get up to the top there was no other tyre tracks in sight,
It was just me crossing the moor on top of the mountain, a 15 minute journey took almost an hour as at times visibility was very poor, I got home safe and sound to a lovely warm house and a much needed cuppa, its at times like this I am glad I drive a 4x4.
The snow is now starting to freeze over tomorrow the roads are going to be bad. I am glad I don't have to venture out, as for the weather forecast they got it wrong this morning.
