More snow

Posted on January 5, 2010

Reading time: 1 minutes.

East Cheshire got a deep blanketting of snow overnight and that’s on top of what was there already. Bowers seem to be unable to travel again so there is no 27 or any other of their Cheshire bus services. Macclesfield town services seem to be running with my spotting the 4 and the 10 going about and the 130 is running on some sort of timetable. Cheshire East Council is pulling out its gritting lorries and snow ploughs so there is some chance of road clearance after the amount of snow that I have never seen falling in Macclesfield before. The cold white spell continues and we’ll just have to deal with it for as long as it is around. It might be a good idea to use more appropriate than the shoes that most use on a daily basis; speaking for myself, I have pulled out hillwalking boots for going to and from work with shoes being carried rather than worn.

A Word of Warning: The Real Time Bus Tracker is not so hot when it comes to missing out cancelled bus services. The 27 isn’t running between Macclesfield and Knutsford but bus services are still being shown on there. Well, I suppose that there’s alway room for improvement with everything. Saying that, it would be better if folk weren’t being mislead…
