Snow ploughs got through to The Lion Inn from the North this morning, but the wind was drifting the snow straight back in, so the road remains closed. They will not attempt it again today.
It's frustrating that we are on the boundary of 2 District Councils who operate snow ploughs independantly without speaking to each other about opening up the whole Blakey Ridge road. So when the weather improves it could only be the North or South side of the road that gets opened first.
Last night one person made it to Blakey on a mountain bike (I assume he carried it most of the way) then camped overnight in a tent! Some people have a stange way of enjoying themselves, maybe Bear Grylls was in Yorkshire?
