We left before dawn from Hawes I took the head torch and the dogs for a walk and then headed east. One can head south from Hawes but I just wanted a quick run so east first and then south. I took the Sheffield North exit from the motorway onto the A61. I really wished I hadn’t. A three car whoopsey had closed the road. The Bizzies out and freezing to death waving me off my route. I took the route and after an hour the carnage passed me. The first recovery truck held the remains of an unidentifiable car. If anyone was alive in it and still has a life I will be amazed. Awful at this time of year. For me just horrendous. I've never found Christmas uplifting.
Worse! I was in delayed. You may think this a bit harsh. You may well be right.
In my car racing days we were unsympathetic. A big cuckoo from someone and a red flag came out and stopped the fun. So no fun.
The highways are not places for entertainment so why do people drive outside their ability. Sixty miles an hour and less I drive at with the truck. A hundred and whatever in the old Porsche. I pull over whenever safe in whatever vehicle, let folk and Fire Blade and Ferrari drivers past. Considerate it’s called.
I really think that all the emergency services ( with the possible exception of one Royal) Need a bonus. The messes they have to clear up are horrendous. How they sleep nights, I don’t know.
We have arrived at Chatsworth.
You are just suffering a wee sniffle. I hope to resume usual insanity shortly. I have had a serious beating. There. Knew there was nowt up with her!
Okay a bit of Chatsworth. See you tomorrow
