A storm of disappointment on Nelson roads

I am sure the ski enthusiasts were thrilled by the dump we received on the 24th and 25th of February

I am sure the ski enthusiasts were thrilled by the dump we received on the 24th and 25th of February, but it certainly did make for difficulty on the roads as your article discusses (“I’ve never seen the roads that bad,” February 29).

My wife came to brush the snow from our car at around 11:30 a.m. Saturday morning, having parked it outside our house at around 8.30 p.m. Friday and found that during that period a vehicle had crashed in to it causing expensive damage to the rear left corner. No one has come to us since then accepting their part in that event.

I appreciate that it was no doubt an accident, but not contacting us is a deliberate act and quite out of keeping with the way many would like to consider Nelsonites to be.

Our vehicle is a dark blue VW Jetta and was parked outside our home, 419 Delbruck Street in Uphill. I urge anyone who might be able to help us be in touch with the driver or owner of the vehicle involved to contact me at martinlane@hotmail.com or by phone at 250-352-3691.
