Bristol trip through the Snow

vcm_s_kf_repr_882x588Michael return to University coincided with the heaviest snow fall we have had since coming over to the UK. Normally we do not get heavy snow as we are so close to the sea, almost a micro climate with the New Forest behind us and the sea in front.
Sunday after a good Wetherspoon’s breakfast, Sunday morning tradition now, Susan, Michael and I set off to Bristol taking the A350 to Chippingham and then the M4 to Bristol.
vcm_s_kf_repr_882x588As you can see the trees that border the road from Kingston Lacy to Banbury Rings were decorated with white washed snow and the Rings almost not visible.
The A350 is 63 miles to the M4 and takes on average 2 hours, that is an average speed of 30 mph, a narrow, long and winding road with the snow edge encroaching dangerously close to you left wheels.
Every hill we crossed brought new white country side, all seemed too much but Michael and Susan snapped away and the rest can be told of our journey through the slideshow I have included.Blog-ss
