Right up my street

Right up my street, originally uploaded by magnum_lady.

Well last night it was blowing a gale. I was awake most of the night listening to the wind howling so I’m shattered today.

It was still galeforce today and the rain has washed away quite a lot of the snow and left us with pure ice. The poor postman today managed to drive up the lane but had to hang onto the van when he got out to deliver the post (it was only a phone bill, so I wouldn’t have minded if he kept it).

I saw a few vehicles slipping trying to get up the lane. One reversed all the way down it because they’d given up. Then lo and behold along came a tractor with not one but two council workers in it (does it take two men to drive a tractor these days?)
Anyway they had a trailer at the back that was spewing out what looked like tarmac chippings…….I wonder if that will melt the ice?

  1. The postman always rings twice, Val, LOL.

    It’s like Belgians changing a light bulb: It takes 5 of them.
    One Belgian holds the bulb, and the other four turn the Belgian.
