The dangers of wind!
Every day (well, every week day) I drive 22 miles to work and the same back in the evening.
The motorways become car parks for the periods of time I need to travel, so I use the back roads across country, which is usually enjoyable in my pride and joy.
HOWEVER, after all this weather, it has turned into something of an assault course!
Bits of tree and bush and spikey, scratchy things all sticking out of the verges and hedges trying to scrach the paint. (particularly bad in the dark on the way home).
Large puddles all over the place requiring careful attention, and this morning there was a broken down foreign tourist coach on a small road hidden by large hedges round a blind bend!
And the number of times artics come barrelling down tiny roads which a barely wide enough for two cars is terrifyingly regular these days.
Now, I understand that this is nothing compared to those poor people in Cumbria, but was wondering how many other Alfisti have had to survive more challenging journeys of late?
