We were in Bangor some 30 miles from home. It had rained hard all day and I was getting a little edgy so suggested we set off home before it got dark.We were turned back about 3 miles from home with a massive flood across the road - only lorries were getting through. We crossed country to the other main road through floods and rivers (all on the roads) The second main road had a wall washed out with stones washed across the road and a flood 6-8 inches deep. Got through that. We followed a van into the next flood, he stalled and blocked the road so I had to reverse and do a 3 point turn. (not easy on a 9 ft. road) The next obstacle was a river flowing across the main road, the Highways people on the scene advised a retreat, we crossed that one OK. Three or four more "puddles" and we arrived home. The journey took two hours.
I just let Betty have her head - in 1st gear and relying on the electronics. She got us through every time. Following the 2009/10 and the 10/11 winters when Betty dealt with icy hills and ungritted roads, I had faith in a well engineered piece of kit, she did not let me down.
Oh and she passed her MOT first time!!!

Well Terfyn,Your Betty got you home once again. It does help to know your area / boundaries, to be able to easily decide upon alternative routes to allow you to get home safe and sound. You sure live in an interesting and sometimes challengingpart of the U.K.
