We just made it out in time. We're heading from San Sebastian to Salamanca yesterday but decided to take a detour to the east coast. On Route there were a few vehicles being dug out. Now just outside Valencia and clear but very cold. Watching the news it is bad around Madrid.

I had a great drive from cascais in Portugal to Salamanca as it was dry and warm yesterday. Got to Salamanca to see the snow had mostly cleared and it’s -3 last night. Campsite reception told me there’s a privately owned motorway around madrid and it hadn’t been cleared.
She said more snow forecast for here today so about to set off for Bilbao , just got to check weather.

We had a lucky escape. Went into a fuel station before Pamplona on Sunday to find the forecourt covered in cars. An 18 tonner had got stuck in about 18" snow and blocked the exit. We thought we were going to be there for the night. Fortunately several blokes with shovels dug it out and managed to get it out of the way. Phew.

We did it too two days ago when the snow started and that route is fine. Stopping at Aragon after San Sebastian. We are near Valencia now with sunburn! We are Scottish tho.
