NY9813 : Queueing for the snowgates

Queueing for the snowgates
Queueing for the snowgates
This is at low altitude at Bowes, where there is just a hint of a thaw. Even a mile or so up the road from this point, the snow is drifting over the A66, so the chance of it being opened any time soon are pretty slim. Nonetheless, HGVs are queueing along the road, in the hope that the road will open soon enough to be quicker than finding an alternative route. You can tell they are not local - anyone familiar with the road would tell them it would be quicker to divert vis the south coast than wait here...
