Well it wouldn't suprise me if they didn't go out and go on a work to rule i.e. only go out when told and given notice, afterall as people keep saying the DoI workers are useless and they could do a better job, so maybe now is the time to prove it.

Well it took me an hour and a quarter to get from Colby to Douglas this morning due to everybody being scared to drive down Richmond at anything other than a snails pace leading to a tailback all the way to the Blackboards. Looks like there was a smallish accident at the bottom of the bypass with a silver car off the road with police van behind it with its hazards on.

 

I can't say if the slowness of traffic was over cautious driving or treacherous conditions? Richmond did look a bit iffy but not undrivable.

Was 'chuggin' along in my van this morning - it's not the best of vehicles in the snow, I was slowly crawling up a hill - in first gear.

 

If I just let the wheels spin very gently they bite a bit and I go forward, then spin a little - this is a slow, but gentle progress.

 

Taking my time and care to get up a hill, I was dumbfounded by the amount of people trying to overtake, and not in much control of their vehicles!

15 minutes after I wrote my comment I went outside to find white stuff all over the place :-)

 

Anyone see the car parked on the hedge in Santon?

Onchan to Ramsey was a good drive this morning, pretty clear after the Whitebridge.

You should have tried the West into Douglas - queues and more queues. Where were the DOI? Nowhere!
