Last week there was a power failure locally to a small block of shops and flats, that obviously was quite serious and could not be fixed quickly. Emergency power was laid on by the Electricity company in the form of a generator, and also they fed this from a massive tank on the roadside!
I think that is is magnificent how they re-surface roads so quickly. It does however cause magnificent traffic jams and frustration from motorists. This road looks fantastic with it’s new painted road markings, and gives a very smooth ride. The recent cold and snow has created millions of potholes though that will not be filled up for ages.
The death of a shopping trolley, seen today, a sad end for such a useful object. Fly tipping in fact!
