Taken at the wheel through the snow and ice and meltwater on the windcreen of my BMW 5 Series Tourer .. that summed up the terrible driving conditions and potential carnage in the snow and ice that suddenly hit the UK 21st December 2009 and oh so nearly put an end to my life. Yes.
You can just make out a yellow sided vehicle that slithered past me in the ‘fast lane’ …. momernts later a tanker laden with petrol went past …. while I was unable to steer a straight line or even brake for fear the car would spin.
The journey that had taken an hour in the morning … took 5 hours that evening … and every second was scary…. and I dont usually scare easily. This time I was terrified …. by what was going on all around me ….. you darnt loose concentration even for half a second. Pow!
