A Snowy weekend in November


If I could accurately predict the weather I would be a multi millionaire! Sometimes the weather does not favour us, and we have dry and dusty conditions when it should be muddy, and sometimes like the week end of the Tracking the Tank tour we had a whole weekend of dense freezing fog. Last weekend though, most unexpectedly we had some ideal weather for an interesting weekend. It had rained during most of the week, so by Friday the lanes were nice and muddy and slippery, and then it snowed during Friday night, and was still snowing steadily when we set off on the Saturday morning, and the wind was blowing the snow off the fields into the lanes, filling them with drifts up to 4 feet (one metre) deep.

Stefan and Christel came from Belgium for the weekend in their Jeep Cherokee and could not believe their luck with the weather.
Friday was cold and sunny, but the there was quite a lot of mud and some nice slippery sections.





On Saturday morning we set off into the snow and had a great day on the lanes to the east of Cambrai finding stretchs of lanes up to four feet deep in snow. We got slightly stuck a couple of times, but only for a couple of minutes, and we were on our way again.

At the end of a great day we headed back into the sunset for Dinner.
Hopefully we will get some more snow soon!
