    Ah well it had to happen ... South Dorset now has a couple of inches and very fine snow falling ... Total CHAOS ... all schools closed. Cars lying around all over the place.

    Why can't we get our s*~t together? This country is a joke!!

    Got plenty here - more than I've ever seen before, though I guess that's not saying much! It was snowing at 9am, it stopped less than an hour ago but I'm not sure how much of that settled.

    People are sledging and snowboarding on the downs on campus At least one forum member will know where I mean...

    I reckon I'll design a plywood 'flat pack' sledge to cut out on my CNC router and start selling them.

    Having a crap time in Central Scotland near Stirling. Wife wont drive the Zafira, damn thing spins the wheels asason as you touch the throttle so shes got my little corsa work mobile and Ive got the Zaffy. Main roads arent too bad most of the time but the side roads and residential streets are a nightmare. Schools are going to be closed all week and this is really pi88ing me off. Teachers will get paid to be off school and we are left either taking holidays from work, unpaid leave or trying to pay for extra childcare!
    I bet people from around Sweden and the Netherlands are having a damn good laugh at us right now.

    Regards

    Starting to thaw now but heavy frost tonight forecast ... Now that will really cause chaos ... frozen slush and black ice, bloody un-gritted rural (my patch) roads and it will be like a demolition derby again :naughty:. SWMBO got to work (23 miles) with no real problems ... ruddy patients living within the clinic catchment area of about a 4 mile radius (central Bournemouth) couldn't make their appointments!!
