The snow season continues with heavy showers this week resulting in school closures. Thanks to the excellent work by the road men and their gritters, I’ve managed to get to work each morning without any problems. The landscape is completely transformed when the showers have subsided and the sun is out resulting in some beautiful scenery. I think we’re pretty well catered for in Shetland when it comes to road safety during snowy weather.
