Snow again

More snow for us, not too much this time.

I find myself fascinated with the mark making of animal tracks.  I must transfer these to my art somehow.

We had a bit of an adventure today.  Not a welcomed one.  On a Sunday we take DS to an art class with a friend of mine – in Rothbury, which is not too far away, but up a steep road and over the moors for a short distance.  We went to collect DS and the road was clear and then 10 minutes later on the way back the road was covered and slippery as hell.

We were following a 4X4 going up the hill, over the top and then down and going really slowly and lots of distance between us – then coming down the hill there was a car in the ditch and the 4X4 stopped to look!!!!!  (no need there was already another car helping).  We couldn’t stop.

Luckily nothing coming up the hill so Ian swerved around, missed the 4X4 by inches and managed to straighten up (I thought we were going into the ditch too).  There was another car coming up and I was frantically flashing the lights to get him to slow down (he did thank goodness, but he did look a bit worried!)  Then another car in a ditch on the left just before the main road junction  – and then on the main road another car well and truly in the ditch at a right angle to the road.  It was totally mad and utter chaos.  I phoned my friend who runs the art classes and told her to get the kids out and get home asap!

I do hope the police got there quickly because there were going to be more accidents as the road was just a skating rink and with the sharp gradients it was just impossible to control the cars….. I took these a few miles down the road when it was safer.

Back here at home (about 7 miles) there was no snow on the road at all.

I’ve said it before – roll on Spring please.
