    Welcome. I hope we can learn lots from you.

    I was reading, I think it was the Manchester Evening News, that your winter was pretty bad and there wasn't enough salt and salt trucks (I think you call them gritters) to keep the roads cleared. Did you have that problem in your area?

    Not really.We're quite remote here in scotland.Had a small problem just before Christmas when the council controlling the gritters on the M40 didn't bother to grit ,this resulted in having to take 3 hours to cover the 18 miles to join the M25 London ring road ,this made our normal 8 hour trip from Scotland to London stretch to over 11 hours.Outside temp -10deg centigrade.Newspapers made a lot of noise about the council concerned.

    Greetings! Good to have you with us. There is a lot of information, most of all good people to share with. I enjoy reading the forum very much. I also had the pleasure of touring the UK in 1997 - very, very enjoyable experience and encountered lovely people everywhere I went. Hope to return again one day it was so nice.
