Yesterday was not a good day for travelling. I saw two overturned lorries on the M6. It was closed between junctions 32 & 33, due to an accident, so we had to make a detour through Preston, and got stuck in a traffic jam with an entire motorway's worth of traffic on a single-lane road. Eventually, I couldn't take no more, so I abandoned the A6 and struck out along the country lanes, and bypassed the bypass. When I rejoined the A6 at Lancaster, the traffic had rejoined the M6, so there were clear roads north, until I got to Scotland. The A7 is closed at Langholm, so I had to detour via Moffat and the A701. All this in gale-force winds.
Anyway, I'm back. Anything happen while I was away?
