23rd July 2007
on friday we set off at about 2pm from bury to plymouth for our friends housewarming. we had previously done the same journey (from bradford) in just over 6 hours so we were hoping to beat that time. very early on in the journey it was clear that wasn't going to happen. as we were driving down the m5 the traffic slowed right down until it just stopped moving. we tuned into the local radio to find out that there was severe flooding around gloucester and worcester... and we were right in the middle of it. we phoned the aa for traffic updates and all we got was the helpful advice: "avoid". so we ended up staying on the motorway all night and eventually got to our destination just after 7am - a 17 hour journey!
