What are the roads like?
A Fiat 500 is shite going 'off road',and struggles on hills
Well in the last 2 hours it's been hammering down, there's an easy 6 inches now and i'm only about 10/15 miles or so from Gloucester.
Main roads might be ok but side roads are impassable without a 4x4 or winter tyres if there's any kind of slope.
Presume you'd have come up to Swindon and then followed the 417/419 to Gloucester (Air Balloon)? Birdlip hill will almost certainly be closed if it isn't already. You may be able to make it if you go M4/M5 and come off at South Gloucester (junction 12 i think).
