    Heavy snow in Alps causes avalanches and travel disruptions
    Schools and roads were closed on Monday in parts of Austria as heavy snow and rain cause disruption across the Alpine region. Two women were rescued by firefighters after their houses were destroyed in a mudslide. Two women had to be rescued by firefighters after their houses were destroyed in a mudslide in a town near Salzburg, Austrian news agency APA reported. One of them was rescued almost immediately, another only after several hours. Both were hospitalized. Over thirty people were evacuated from their homes in the region of Styria amid concerns over landslides, while the residents of 15 buildings in Carinthia were evacuated as the nearby Gurk river threatened to burst its banks.

    No nothing.

    No Mods. No rockers. Just a chunky knob.

    No tackiness.

    Std as Ford intended, but with a space saver wheel and jack and nuts and wheel brace. oh.. and flaps, a man has got to have flaps.

    I’ve also ordered some winter boots!! The RS managed ok the last 2 winters but thought I’d get some this year and see how they perform. I’m not expecting a lot of snow but I’m hoping to see a big difference in wet and dry handling/braking at lower winter temps. After much research and deliberation I opted for the Vredestein Wintrac Pro which have had some great write ups. £146 a tyre. I’ve just had an email saying they’ve been dispatched so I should expect them later this week.

    @bobcat

    Rest easy mate, I shall upload some pics when fitted, if the site allows me, lol!! 👍.

    Cheers, Marc.
