We have just come back we were going to visit friend in Whitby but only just getting to the top of birkbrow passing about six cars all spinning there wheels and people pushing cars so I would avoid as it,s Dangeruse. Good old Escort made it People must have been in first gear just spinning the wheels one nearly side swiped us slipping on the ice.

    just been for a ride out. when i left guisborough it was fine but it was terrible on the moor road. got to runswick and took these pics. was hoping for a look out myself later but its not looking good to be honest. Coast road back was terrible, cars skidding all over the place.

    Had to call it off

    Well just had a call from Matty it is getting worse with the snow ,so rather than take a chance and leave things to god and providence i reluctantly had to phone Gadgett and say it is off ,
    We will try again tomorrow, :sad: But on the bright side me and the wife are off to her sons for a free dinner :wink:

    Re: Had to call it off

    Well all credit to Nelson, the tryhard has just pushed through the snow from Notts up here to Barnard Castle for his first drubbing of the year. However, having just read Harry's useful post, it seems that we may be thwarted. Never the less, we are going to throw caution down the pan and have a mooch out to the coast. Fire looks good though. Guns of Navarone is on in a bit......hmm, pub...
    Happy New Year All
    Tight lines for 2010
