You’re probably more used to seeing Bray Hill as a 160mph flash view from a T.T. biker’s dashcam but this is what it looked like yesterday morning when the island was carpeted in snow and everything ground to a halt. Except for the hardy souls — particularly at Noble’s Hospital acute care facility — who braved the elements and walked to work. The Christmas school break has been extended by three days and there is a lot of whinging about getting the kids back to school from frustrated parents who are either running out of child care cover or have just had enough! The Department of Transport pulled out all the stops and got the main roads cleared and basic bus services reinstated. I bet we’ll get some fabulous Manx calendar photos next year!
