Damsel in Distress
We haven't had a lot of snow this winter therefore no cries for help from stranded motorists in need of a tractor to pull them out of a snowdrift. Tonight however a very distressed and badly shaken young lady appeared at the dining room window (nearly gave me a heart attack!) obviously in need of assistance. It has been snowing higher up on the moors for the last couple of days so the road to Kirkby Stephen is a bit tricky. Instead of travelling on the A66, the main trans-pennine route, her SatNav directed her across our dark, lonely, snow covered moor! Not a nice feeling for a newly qualified driver with no experience of driving in ice or snow or on roads without street lights! She was scared to death, poor thing. Her friends came to her rescue and drove her down the dale and back to civilization. If you read this, Jess, I hope you are okay and enjoy your stay in Yorkshire and don't forget to buy a road map!
