407

407

It snowed here overnight - by UK standards quite a lot. The US branch of the family have told us that it was only a dusting but it was significant for us. When it snows here I always listen to local radio - the only time I do. I heard that the main road that runs from Dover to London was blocked and had been for a number of hours. Given that I didn't have too much to do I decided to set off on foot to find out what was going on. After a fair walk passing miles of queuing traffic I arrived at the cause of the problem. A lorry had partially gone off the road and got stuck. When I arrived on the scene the recovery teams were just winching it out. I took a few pictures and headed for home. I sent my pictures to a number of news agencies and one of them was used. Not big time but it made the walk worthwhile and I had recorded Jeremy Kyle anyway!

As I read the post I was wondering it you sent them in to any news organizations. Glad to see they used one!

It's great that one of your shots were used! Hope you have no more snow for a while!

...well worth the walk then! Another good record of your year so far!

Congratulations! I see they gave you credit as well. I guess you'll be trolling about after dark as "worst problems are expected tonight." I get the impression that road is used exclusively for trucks (lorry)
