2021-02-09 (Day 040) Getting The Mail Through


We didn’t see many cars moving around today, but delivery drivers don’t get the option of deciding whether they are going to drive or not – they just have to get out there and do their job. And perhaps not surprisingly, their vehicles are not always optimised for getting through the snow.

And so this poor ParcelForce driver found himself stuck in the middle of the road. I was pretty impressed he managed to get in as far as he did, but there was no way he was getting out without some external help.

A few of us from the nearby houses got ourselves out there to help – I didn’t just stand around taking photographs, honestly! We dug out enough that he was able to reverse back to the main street of the estate and from there he was able to drive out to the main road. Rather him than me, to be honest!
