I was due to be at Brodie Castle today for the Victorian Christmas Fair, so after we spent nearly 2 hours clearing the drive to get out, I set off. I decided to stick to the main A96 route to Inverness, thinking this would be a safe bet. How wrong was I. The A96 was treacherous and very slow moving. In parts there were not even any tracks in the road, it was pure snow on top of ice and cars sliding over the place, which caused backlogs of traffic. I have to say though, people were driving sensibly!
I managed to get almost into Elgin, when MFR (local radio - useful for traffic conditions) announced the A96 was closed between Elgin and Forres. BLAST! I turnaround at the nearest roundabout and headed back home - 2 hours later!
I was so fed up with not being able to get to Brodie Castle that I bought Toy Story 1 and 2 in a garage on the way home.
We've had a nice family afternoon watching movies - in the comfort of our home, in front of the fire.
Here are some photos of the snow we've had and of course, the daughter enjoys it:
So much for keeping my blog up to date, but now I'm slowing down with work, I'll try and keep it posted regularly. It really has been a manic season.
