  • Er...no, it wasnt! The pavements were treacherous and I witnessed several people of various ages slipping on the compacted ice and snow. Thankfully no one was in any way injured. If the county road maintenance is going to be privatised let's hope it's awarded to a NorwegianGermanRussian contractor who has experience of real winters!
