Snow today


There was an absence of snow in the Alps this season (and last) but fortunately I am at the European resort with the third most snow. It’s just pretty cold, and in the morning it was foggy on the mountain.

FN09WPF - Driver nearly knocks me over

In the new year I would quite like to not have to deal with idiots on the road. Unfortunately it doesn’t translate into a resolution that I can make. This driver was very apologetic (too apologetic perhaps?) but I don’t understand how he failed to see me in the first place. I was lit up like a Christmas tree. My impression was that he was driving like a typical London driver - inconsiderately, and trying to force his way through. On reflection, looking at the video, I think he failed to slow down and take due care at the junction where he was supposed to give way.
