    Default Be careful out there every one

    The weather up here is being a s0d.

    Drove home to collect a suitcase for my next trip. I was nearly home and got a call from work, the trip was off. So about face and back to the office.

    Crossing the M6 on the M56 I pulled in to the lane 2 to let a volvo pass. He was about 10 ft infront when we hit a cloud burst and visibility disappeared. At the same time there had been a big pile up on the exit slip of the M6 onto the M56. A Vec-b appeared from the darkness abandonded in the outside laneless than 70ft ahead. The volvo swerved to avoid it right across me and I dropped anchor too.

    There was about 7-8 cars on the hard shoulder with varying levels of modification and a police car was just arriving. I tried to tell the local radio stations but no one answered their travel line numbers. I hope no-one hit that Vec-B.

    5 minutes up the road the sun came out.....

    It was like that on the M1 last night.
    Torrential rain, followed by that lovely combination of bright sun, spray and wet road.
    I got off as soon as I could!!

    Came back down the M6 this afternoon heading for the M42 and onwards to the M40.

    The weather as already stated was shall we say "changeable".

    It seems that when the weather gets worse it just seems to encourage the idiots (tailgaters, lanechangers, no light brigade etc, etc).

    All you can do is keep alert and try and avoid being caught up in one of "their" accidents.
