with regards to this thread:
A friend of mine came down and dug my astra out for me today so I can move again I contacted the pound in Hull but they insisted that I don't try to come and collect Mervin as the roads are unploughed, ungritted and "lethal" (the location btw is HU8 9LP)
I really want to give it another go in the morning and get down there if I can with maximum daylight hours, BUT, what I want to know, is from a local viewpoint, exactly HOW bad are the roads there?
The pound manager said they are "terrible" but it's all subjective on the opinion and driving experience of the person telling you Her idea of "terrible" roads might be my idea of "ok" roads I'm happy to tackle. Even if their lane is snowed in I'm happy to leave my car at the end of the lane and walk down to them to get the dog, but she insists that the local minor roads between them and "major" roads are completely untreated.
Any more viewpoints?
