Snow

You can't run as fast across it. Nor can you drive as fast on it - as one young pup found out today at great cost. Heading out from site, on a still frozen section of road, I drove past a van in a hedge on the bend. The young chap was out of the van, on the phone, no doubt calling for help. With his back wheels off the ground he wasn't going to be driving it away any time soon. And with a twist on the rear - I'm talking about the van rear axle - it was probably going to be a scrapper. Now here's a tip, when it's snowy or icy under-tyre drive slowly. Today that young lad has learn't a valuable lesson, with damage to the van only, he was lucky today.
