Mad, scary and bad

Surviving the walk to school each morning

Ice, ice baby

How bitterly cold was it this morning?   Cold enough for me to be wearing gloves for our walk to school – a rare occurrence.  The local traffic news seemed full of icy roads around Nantwich, what would Broad Lane be like today?

It’s the regular series of logjams along the road, with the volume of traffic seeming back to how it was before.  The new bus driver seems to be very aware of the problems, driving very carefully throughout the jams and taking it steady afterwards.

UPDATE – You could hear a pin drop
Following on from my writing about the silence from Cheshire East regarding “bogus” letters of support for Muller’s planning applications, I have now received an almost identical reply to that given to the person who brought all this to the council’s attention.

“When we report representations to planning committees we list the points made but do not state addresses. The ‘Observations’ section then comments on the points with regard to the weight which Members are advised to attach to them.

Thus if a point is relevant it will be given weight, regardless of the number of people who have made it or the address that it purports to come from. Equally if a point is not a material planning consideration it will be disregarded.”

Is it me, does this feel to skirt around addressing the situation?

Today’s scores out of 10:
Traffic volume: 9
Stupid/careless parking: 0
Manners: 8
No. of cars parking illegally:0
