It’s been great having my friend Alastair and his wife Ann staying over the weekend. However our itinerary was altered somewhat from the original plans. Although we made the planned, and very enjoyable lunch with friends on Saturday, the referees strike put paid to the Dumbarton game with Alloa. As it turns out the game wouldn’t have on anyway because of the weather.
The weather in question was the deepest November snowfall I can remember and meant that our friends’ planned return to Campbeltown via the A83 Rest and be Thankful as well as other country routes would have been insane to attempt. The police agreed and closed of parts of the A82 and A83 yesterday.
All this meant that our guests had an extra night here which included emergency rations in the shape of a delicious takeaway curry last night.
Hopefully the snow plough will carve out their route home today although if another curry is required tonight, so be it!!
