Default Engcon Big Dig Day - Saturday 3rd March 2018

I stayed in Tewkesbury last night - working late making sandwiches for the BigDigDay, natch

Just as well. SWMBO sent me a photo of the drive at home this morning.

However everything over here is clear - the roads are open and whilst there's a bit of snow on the estate, it's manageable. Just to be on the safe side, I asked the guys in the office to clear the front for any visitors who want to attend the Service and Installation teach-in at the office. Lazy so-and-so's had a better idea

And in answer to the next question; yes - this will be available to try tomorrow

regards

Robert

your drive looks as bad as mine ..... down at the house ..... God knows what the other 3/4 mile looks like
Weren't good last night at 5 pm when I took Clara home ..... neither were the bloody roads, with the snow drifting through the hedges
Got some spectacular ones here this morning, in the field in front of us.

I AM GUTTED

Bring back the rain clouds ..... all is forgiven

Can come by and collect you if it's possible to get a defender to the bottom of your drive?
