Paparazzi and insane drive home

Friday 25th Jan

So we were told the snow was coming today, from three pm. At five pm it still hadn’t arrived so you face the dilema of to drive to Birmingham and photography the Ronan Keating concert or not as it didn’t look like we would have this snow???

I grabbed my camera gear and off I set. Met up with Steve Thorne and Jason Sheldon two Midland snappers and had a talk while we waited for support act Brian (Pub singer) McFadden. Two songs into the Pub singers set I get singled out and told we were Paparazzi. Now I can take been told Im bald, no shit Sherlock, but PAPARAZZI??? Ive never taken a Pap shot in my life!!! Still off to the pubs you go Brian ………

8.40pm and stage time for Ronan Keating. Quick 3 songs great light and some nice pictures. I packed my equipment away and Im out and into the rain walking to my car……… Where is this snow I wondered?

I set for the drive home. As soon as I got to the Stafford South M6 turn the weather quickly turned for the worse. Heavy snow was settling on the Motorway very quickly and by the time we got to Stafford North turning we were down to one lane on the motorway in a slow convoy in the nearer side lane. Off at junction 15 and the very long and hairy drive home. I’ll be truthful I dont think Ive ever driven in weather this bad.

There were cars abandoned everywhere. On the A500 every lane was covered in snow. I saw a lorry jackknife in front of me pulling on to the D Road.

In short Im still not sure how I got home, but 2 and 1/2 hours later I pulled into the drive and opened a bottle of wine!!!
