Snow, ice and a country lane

Yesterday was a bad day for me.  I got stuck in the car driving uphill on a narrow, snow and ice covered lane.

I had to reverse all the way down and there were ditches on parts of the road side so I had to be very careful I did not end up in a ditch.

It was dark as well.  There were two of us in cars  who couldn’t drive up the hill.  Help from a 4 wheel driver and a lot of grit spread on the ice  meant we beat the snow.  

To cut a long story short all is well now.

I remember years ago we put a different type of tyre on our car in winter.  The tyres were better for driving in snow – maybe I should do it again.
