Storm Dennis couldn’t keep us from paying our annual pilgrimage to DubFreeze, although it did throw a few obstacles in our way.
We set off early Sunday morning from Sheffield in the T-Cross that we had borrowed from VW. The roads in South Yorkshire were fine, the winds were not too blustery, nor was there much in the way of precipitation.
As we neared the County Showground in Staffordshire, and deviated from the main A roads, things started to worsen. We were heading through a small village just past Uttoxeter when the road we were travelling on stopped being a road, and turned into a river. Being in a village that we were unfamiliar with, we decided that we needed to turn around and not try to cross the torrent running across the road.
Despite Storm Dennis’ best efforts, we made it safely to the Showground to meet up with our Chairman, John Renshaw who was already in the hall, quite aptly in his T2 Katastrophenschutz Bus (Disaster Bus). John had reportedly managed to wade through some quite deep waters in his van!
