Just seen my first gritter, and me sitting here with all the windows open in a short sleeved shirt!

It might only be a dress rehearsal or warm-up as most of the gritting equipment has been in cold storage for months. [It balmy in Glasgow, btw.]

Talking of gritters, reminds me that our Welsh local authority has for many years stationed all its snow-ploughs and gritters on a barren bit of moorland up on top of the hills between Cardigan Bay and lowlands of Dyfed. This is obviously a well chosen site, since, when the first snows of winter arrive, guess which area gets isolated first ?????? Forward planning.........

This was the standard practice in Welsh Wales when I lived there, but they were stationed at remote hill farms so that the farmer could hitch up his tractor and clear his designated area.

It worked very well and I remember we were able to walk to school in 1947, when the snow was deeper than we were!
