Well here’s a turn up, this week’s View From The Cab is a day early!  Regular readers will know that if our window on the world through the windscreens of the Tachoblog Tribe isn’t on a Friday we’re usually late!

But for once Tachoblog’s been planning properly so you don’t have to wait longer than usual for your View From The Cab fix.

View From The Cab Logo4 427x62This week’s View From The Cab is in the order that we received the Views.  Interestingly (well, Tachoblog thought it was anyway) we end up with a reasonably logical route around the globe.

So let’s get started with the welcome return of GR8CDNPumpkin.  His first View is of ‘flooding on SK-39 in Saskatchewan, Canada’…

…Their second View is of ‘Marilyn at Kennett Square, Pennsylvania  She’s still looking good. Sometimes, the old icons are the best. She was a sirene from a
distant past. Dig them Red Shoes’.

As I was approaching the new roundabout near Taupo, there was plenty of steam from the Wairakei thermal area, which feeds the geothermal power stations’…

…’But not nearly as much as there would normally be at this time of year and not enough for the ski-field operators, although as I write this on Thursday evening the forecast is for some very cold weather so some proper snow could be on the way soon’.
