I drove home from Derby, down the A38 at around 5.30 and the road was fine.
There’s been on and off snow for the last three days, yet the road was fine to drive down and I was doing the speed limit.
Last night and tonight, as soon as I hit Bassett’s pole island, so it all goes awry and it’s taken me nearly an hour to do the last 3 miles.
I really wonder what Birmingham Council puts in their grit, but I doubt it’s anything that actually melts the snow.
I also wonder if they’ve gritted at all, to be honest and no doubt they’ll have some excuse.
Whatever, the roads in Birmingham are simply horrendous, even while the snow is still falling.
The club have said the game will happen, but I doubt they’ve allowed for what’s happened and they won’t be able to guarantee the fan’s safety as they make their way to the ground.
Hence I reckon it’s going to be called off.
If I’m right, it’ll be a shame, as this should be a reasonably easy 3 points.
Well ok, not easy; as I don’t think any championship game is easy, but surely about as easy as it gets, on paper?
I’ve just (stupidly) walked the dog and I’m frozen stiff and want to get to bed, hence I’m cutting to the quick.
If it happens, it’s got to be a win.
2-1 to us.
