Snow had been falling thick and fast since the morning. We got a call from the police asking us to help a lady who’s vehicle had got stuck in the snow. Although we drove over Hawkshead Hill and along the road to Ambleside, we could not find a car with a passenger in who required our assistance, albeit there were a few stranded vehicles around. After contacting the police for a registration number we were informed that the lady had been helped and was now at work.
So instead of feeling miffed we decided that at least we had training in putting the snow chains on and experiencing their effectiveness (we couldn’t have got up the hill without them), and of course the lady was safely at work!
