Grit and bear it

Maybe the weather forecasters aren’t over-reacting – I’ve just seen a gritter complete with snow plough go past The Lichfield Blog Towers.
And the plough might well be needed if we get a fair amount of the white stuff overnight, because according to an online news article, Staffordshire County Council are running out of grit.


It seems the regular routes will be salted, but no others. And more worryingly, their supplies are only likely to last until the weekend. Add to this supply problems to councils across the country and there’s a worrying cocktail emerging.


Let’s be fair to Staffordshire County Council though. It’s not like winter happens every year so it must have come as quite a shock…
