A Metaphor of Our Age?

My local filling station has fuel. For the moment, at least. How long supplies can hold out given the demand is moot. Queues in both directions of which I was unable to determine the length.

Re: Snowdonia

Like all her books, the one by Ellen Bowness is much smaller than the Fotovue equivalent (I have both), but it might help narro...
