Got the car down the hill this morning Scary few minutes and only single track. still got there and back and now topped up with food and milk. there were people talking about gritters what are they ? the house has been here thirty years never seen one up here. had to dig our selves pout again this year with the help of a JCB which helped move the top snow but compacted the bottom two inches that has been an ice rink and down hill don't make it easy.
