Snowing here again - still not as bad as down in that other country :P

Good grief.... the Scots can be so racist :o

Sez he with "Can we have Independence for England " in his sig :lol:

Yes indeed as we would be £billions better off :yes: But at least I can say the words 'Wales' and 'Scotland' ;)

I was out in my car earlier and it was interesting to feel how safe and solid the LC felt on such slippery surfaces :)

It was odd to find the country lanes as clear as they were.... I guess they were better sheltered from the windy conditions and driving snow :huh:

Snowing loads in Lutterworth so left work at 4 and was tootling along quite nicely til I came over the M6 into Rugby.... got stuck for over an hour because people just don't know how to cope with weather like this.... :rolleyes:

Bear in mind on a clear day it takes me about 5-10 minutes from the motorway to my house..... :unsure:

Its awesome here - theres only a few inches but it provided hours of entertainment at uni today :D and i got to wear my wellies so i was well happy :P

My journey to uni was so easy today - there was sod all on the road - i was sat in the lecture theatre at 8.30am! (on my own of course lol) I usually barely make it on time or am late on a monday morning - i wish it would snow more often! :D

Also one of my lectures got cancelled because the lecturer used the snow as an excuse to stay in bed ! Ive had a great day :P

Only downside was the pathetic excuse for a lorry driver i encountered on the way home , he was driving about two inches away from my bumper for about 5 miles on the way home, that is totally dangerous in normal conditions but in snow - thats inexcusable! :angry:

Looking out the window up here in a northern country........ and theres been no more snow. It was kind of raining last night so some of its gone away, but still a fair bit lying. However its colder so wondering how much of it is ice now....? Will find out soon enough when we try to get the boss to work!

Last night was bad on the roads as the gritters seemed to have stopped by 6pm!

I have just seen the weather forecast and it appears that our northern friends are due for a bad time with heavy snow heading their way :(

No more here today, it's been a really lovely, mild day. Still snow on the hills, but there's very little left in town.

All schools closed today, but it's not snowed all morning/day! lol

It must be so annoying being a mum. Demanding a big 4x4 to get the kids to school in - then, when the snow comes and it's the sort of weather where a 4x4 would actually be in its element, schools are closed as nobody can get there.

Rumbled methinks !

Oh no,

Just when i thought we had seen the last of the snow for now, the forcasters are saying that London and the South East plus East Anglia are due to get potentially 10 inches of snow through tonight, thursday and friday, whilst the kids are loving it, its causing chaos, with the vast majority of roads still not gritted, no pavements at all gritted, and people slipping and falling over left right and centre.

It will be interesting to see what will happen if we do get the amount of snow that is forcast, because it will settle on top of what is now 3 inches of ice on the pavements and side roads, many people ignored the warnings on monday not to go out or travel unless absolutely necessary and there were accidents galore, i sincerely hope people take more care this time,.... Take care, keep safe.

Think this is bad? How about the days when the Thames froze over, regularly, to such an extent that people could skate & hold parties on the ice?

I think that was in the 1700s- no electricity or central heating :no:

No records would have been kept, but I wonder how many beggars & homeless died from exposure :unsure:

I thought we were in for an easier time with rain only.... I have not seen a forecast today so please tell me you are joking :unsure:

EDIT.... Having checked the BBC weather forecast I now know you are joking.... you are evil :disgust:

On a nicer note.... I found a car park today with just a couple of tyre tracks :P I was surprised just how tail happy I could get the LC :thumbsup:
