Home Safe

Last night the motorway was clear and dry, the traffic very light, I got to the turnoff for my home wondering what all the fuss was about.

But Oh My Goodness, the couple of miles from the motorway to home!  The road had a wicked-looking sheen to it.  Patches of slushy snow and compacted ice littered the centre of the lane, forcing me to ride in the tyre tracks left by previous cars.  The traffic was down to 30 mph, so no pressure from cars behind for me to travel faster than I needed to.  And as I turned off the main road onto the side streets it turned to occasional patches of tarmac amongst the snow that had been alternately compacted and frozen time and again over the last few days.  Down to 5 miles an hour, with both feet off of their rests and hovering an inch above the snow, just in case.

This morning I gave in and caught the train through the falling snow.  Still, Ken’s journey horror story beats mine hands down.
