Rescued !

20th December 2010
I was out early this morning and took a few pictures around Knock, but my favourite picture of the day was taken near Ballyvary and shows a whitethorn tree in the snow , with a standing stone on top of the hill. I often pass this scene and admire the tree and resolve to visit the standing stone. But the two looked great together in the snow !.

The weather is continuing to cause problems, my daughter Aisling lives in Dundee and was due to fly home today for a few days before Christmas, its her Birthday on Wednesday and we were really looking forward to her visit. this morning we decided that it was better if she did not come because of the road conditions. As it happens the flight was cancelled anyway.

Earlier today Patricia commented about how well my car was handling the snow, its a 1999 Citroen Berlingo , this evening having visited knock Airport to collect our Son Barry I was heading back to Westport to collect Patricia when while stopped in traffic on a very icy Dublin Road suddenly the clutch packed in and I had to push the car into the ditch. As I stood in the freezing cold trying to figure out my next move a good Samaritan came to my aid. Ray Ford and his two nephews Padraig and Arron were Christmas Shopping and stopped to help, they gave me a lift back to kiltimagh and I arranged for a garage to rescue the car. It never snows but it pours!!
