The perils of living at Pry House
We have had heaps more snow today. The roads are very tricky even in the 4x4. The gritter has been up past the house twice but the roads soon get covered again as it is snowing most of the time and the wind is blowing it all over the place. I foolishly set off for Keld at about 7 p.m. I only drove a few hundred yards before I was in trouble. I was slipping and sliding on a bad, downhill bend. I was terrified but had no other option than inch slowly to the bottom of the hill where I abandoned the Freelander. This cowardly choice meant I had to walk, head on, into a blizzard all the way back up to Pry House! I'm still shaking!
