Snowy Loanhead
In Loanhead we get lots of snow. We have 16” in undisturbed areas. Although the council snowplough depot is round the corner they don’t plough beyond their own shed (What do you expect for 30 grand a year rates I guess? Grumble grumble!). The road through the estate has been a chaotic guddle of stuck cars and Mike had to get off and push his bike on Monday and Tuesday. Not so on Wednesday though: Doug and George have had much fun building a snowplough in the workshop to go onto the front of our truck. Clearing snow this way is much more fun and we have even been able to help out some of our neighbours; but we must not forget that we need the truck to tow the Airstream Caravan and that kerbs are hard.
