On this day – Disaster strikes

Found this video online from The Courier’s YouTube channel of the moment the roof collapsed under the weight of the snow at RG Consort, a garage in Dundee, on this day in 2010. Disaster! It was also this day in 2010 when the snow caused my holiday to be cancelled before it had begun – after spending the day retreiving the neighbours tree which had fallen over the wall onto the road (narrowly missing the car we were to drive in to the airport), and making a treacherous drive to Edinburgh through fife as the A90 was closed!

We’re sure there were lots of other incidents around Dundee around that day which brought huge snowfall that stayed for weeks.

Everyone prepared for winter this year??
