Yes the first snow flurry brings out the genetically challenged.
Rely on the new car gadgetry to save them as their limited brain cells struggle to cope.
Some snow reported on Brecon Beacons today....shall give it a miss ooo

In the early 1970s my mates and I used to go to Crimdon car park on the beach banks it was huge . We thought it was great to chuck our cars around along with a few other lads taking turns learning to handle a car in snow . The local Police would turn up and see we where no trouble and leave us alone after a bit of chat . Probably thinking it would do us good . We all felt it should be part of the driving test at the time and I still do. Its saved me a couple of times on ice. cold

Although I am a 'naturalised citizen' of Essex I'm actually from the North East and I recall plenty of snow in the winter when I was young. In the first winter after passing my test I used a large empty car park on the Team Valley Trading Estate and practised driving on snow (it was a Sunday and most businesses were closed). It has been invaluable ever since and got me through some horrendous conditions, although I'm left with a belief that a clutch and manual gearbox are ideal and I have to suspend disbelief when relying on my BMW X drive transmission; I know it seems to work but I can't know what it's thinking.

Team Valley rings a bell . A German lady who lived in Newcastle had parked her car to do her shopping . As we walked past another car began to roll so I stopped it but it had tapped into the Germans car . Out came the owner of the runaway car . Her daughter was in hospital and she was on another planet with worry over her child . I acted as ref and sorted it out left them my details etc . Just a tiny scratch. A child in hospital is far more important than a lump of metal . Funny two women and it was sorted . Often wondered how two men would have handled it .

We even had snow in Norwich whilst I was sifting through the junk in one of those antiques shops that are featured on The Antiques Road Trip. They are more like "we buy junk and sell antiques" but I found some nice very early AA badges.


Here for a good time not a long time!!
