The White Stuff

images In yesterday's post entitled, 'Snow Go' I may have mistakenly given the impression that the snow was on its way out. 

Wink

At a round 4pm today, the snow returned - a little at first, then it got heavier and heavier. By the time I got to the station to pick-up Ann around 6pm, the whole area was covered. It wasn't particularly deep but it was causing absolute chaos on the roads.

We came home via Deeble Road to avoid the road-works near Wicksteed Park. The car in front was all over the place with its front wheels spinning like crazy! I slipped the car into manual and kept it in third gear all the way home  - perfect...no slipping, no sliding and no skidding (phew!). I couldn't reverse the car into the garage - I just couldn't get enough grip, but I did manage to get it in frontwards - well, at least it's out of the snow!

Bugger!
