This was my view for one hour and forty minutes this morning:
My journey to work, about seven miles, normally takes around 15-20 minutes depending on the traffic. Today however it was like Antartica in West Central Scotland. The M8, M80, M73 and M74 motorways were gridlocked. It was taking seven hours for cars to progress a few hundred yards.
STV’s take on it is here
Radio Scotland was deluged with telephone calls emails and texts criticising the response from emergency services and local councils.
Everybody becomes an instant expert in these situations. Chris J on the STV report seems to be one of these folk. He wonders why more heed wasn’t taken of the weather forecast which turned out to be wrong.
“Met Office and Council Roads should be sacked now, they do not have a clue”
I wonder how one would sack a road?
