It’s Christmas Eve, which means that this week’s theme of a snow-covered Merthyr Road is drawing to a close. So, to finish off the week, here’s how the end of my street looked on Saturday morning after the unseasonable snow Friday afternoon and evening.
40 years ago, before the A470 trunk road was completed, this was the main road between Cardiff, Merthyr and Brecon, but thanks to the snow and mist, this week it was reduced to picture-postcard status. Plenty of 4×4’s and vans still struggled up and down it, with the odd car too, but snow ploughs? Didn’t see one all morning whilst we were out with the cameras, sadly.
I hope you’ve enjoyed this week’s seasonable and unusually (for me!) topical theme. Have yourself a safe and Merry Christmas.
