The 2010 New Year Run

Sunday 3rd January 2010

02/01/10 18:50 RUN CANCELLED

Due to the severe weather conditions the New Year Run has unfortunately had to be cancelled on safety grounds.

We had two cars out checking the route today. It was fairly good weather conditions at the start, but this quickly deteriorated. We gave up at Kinneswood when it turned into white out conditions.

Heading home over the Forth Bridge and onto the slip road it turned into a nightmare with polished thick ice covering the road. Dozens of cars were sliding all over the carriageway struggling to get grip. The road to Newton also turned out to be totally blocked. The journey home took us 3 hours and 55 miles after having to go back over the Forth Bridge through Fife and over the Kincardine Bridge to Linlithgow.

We were the lucky ones, as I write this Chic is still stuck near Newbridge due to the M9 being closed in both directions because of the ice.

With temperatures due to be down to -12 again tonight it is very unlikly that the situation will be any different for the run.

Road condition passable on the way out.

Then started to deteriorate.

Then got really bad.

Nice to see one and all who ventured out. Great venue and fabby food. And, yes, I was as warm as toast. :-)

Good venue, good foof, good company. Not sure my 5 would have got over the ice!

Well worth a return to this venue in the future - glad we ventured out to try it.
Had enough difficulty walking on the ice let alone taking a 5 over it and Heather's mum refused to sit in the boot so the Megane it had to be
