    OK I am officialy fed up of the winter, and the useless Wrexham Council :eek:)

    Woke up to around 8" Yes 8" of snow this morning, what was worse, my street has drives to the houses down the left of the street, right of the street no drives. What did the council do? sent a snow plough in the middle of the night and pushed all the snow into the drives :-o D*** H*** Drivers

    Spent an hour digging the car out X( X( X( X( X(

    Were just over a week away to british summertime... Enough Already, anyway got too work.after a fun 7 mile drive along ungritted dual carraigeway with the car more sideways than facing forward :coolsteer) and as for the traction control what a waste of time :-q anyway windge over, time for a :coffee , and a long wait to see if any of my staff make it to work :ymdaydream:

    Have a nice day everyone, Stay away from the Llangollen area the roads are unpassable..... Unless you have a dog team and a sledge :D

    We're up for it with camera at the ready, although the 4x4 may be a more suitable vehicle ;) but if you're all going to be in your Zed's so will we and as long as it's not raining we'll be Top Down :)

    I actually went to work this morning in the zed :-\ took me two hours to dig it out and another hour to drive the 7 miles, then came home, the old girl is abandoned in a lay bye a mile away, couldn't get any further, had to dig her in so she was safe, wasn't going to risk someone skidding into her.. so took me another hour to make sure she was safe and sound :x
