    Re: What has made you happy or sad?

    Lynne and I were traveling to Nottingham today and as we entered the M1 slip road North at jct 22 around 12.30 the yellow information light saying Motorway closed came on as we passed it.
    Lynne asked me what it meant and when I told her she doubted me as the traffic was moving normally as we joined the main motorway.
    Then as we moved a couple of miles further the blues and twos went by the opposite way. "There I told you" I said "it's going to be shut before jct 23 hopefully there won't be a long delay as we must be one of the first to get to it.
    Now the funny thing was that when we started the car, the tyre pressure warning light came on and it took me 10 mins to pump it up.
    Good job too.
    As we approached jct 23 mile marker there was a couple of vehicles with flashing lights on the hard shoulder and Tyre skid marks going down into the trees.
    Lynne slowed down a bit and I could just see what was left of the car.
    My view (being the passenger) was better than Lynne's so she said "Are they alright" I replied " Not a prayer from the look of what was left of the drivers front side"
    The motorway was closed very shortly after that.
    I can't help thinking if I hadn't pumped the Tyre up we could'ave been caught up in that!!!!
