The local transport authority started putting these along the road early last week:

They are there so drivers can see where the road ends and the grass, or in most cases near me, where the ditch starts!! Last winter I saw lots of cars in the ditches near me as they had slid off the road. The snow had completely filled and covered the ditches and most drivers never knew they were there until they slid into them!

It only seems like the week before that they removed them, now they are putting them back again!

Now I know winter’s just around the corner. I hope it’s not as bad as last winter, snow from the 15th of December and it stayed on the ground until the end of March.

Where did the summer go??
