TF0920 : The Horror!

taken 1 year ago, near to Bourne, Lincolnshire, Great Britain

The Horror!
The Horror!
The two winter weather systems nicknamed "The Beast from the East" and "Storm Emma" hit Lincolnshire unusually hard. Bourne was effectively isolated for 3 days, largely because of ice and accidents on the main A15, and drifting show on the hills nearby. But no more than about 4cm fell in the town itself, though the wind was bitter. This was the Saturday Morning. Another 4cm had fallen overnight, but the roads had been kept clear after being sort out on the Friday.

Despite the roads being clear, the town was empty. People had had enough and were staying in bed.
The A15
The A15 is the main north-south road in Lincolnshire, running the entire length of the county for almost 100 miles between Hessle, near Kingston upon Hull, and Peterborough via Lincoln, Sleaford and Bourne. It is also the road that crosses the Humber Bridge.
