Slip Slidin' Away
So while the whole of the north has been covered in snow, a small corridor along the A69 missed it all, and that included us. What we did get though was ice on ice on ice. Not good.
I was up early Tuesday, popped out to the car, and as I rolled slowly towards the gate, realised it was actually very very icy. In fact I was gliding along on sheet ice. So either I was going to hurtle splat into the gate, or if I was unlucky fly through the gate and bounce down the hill. Neither seemed a great option, so I managed to bring myself to a slow halt and gingerly went back into the house where I stayed for the next 24 hours.
Got out briefly yesterday and overnight it froze again so had more of the same. Eventually ventured out about 3pm today. I am actually sick of this weather. I don't mind snow because I can play in the garden with the boys but as for ice, I'm not sure if wheels or feet are worse. Either way I'm crap at staying upright.
