    Absolutely nothing either in mid-Essex where I work or home in South Suffolk. Doesn't stop the idiots picking clean Asda's shelves though, nor did it stop parents phoning to find out if today's school trip would go ahead! Which it did.

    Only good thing was a complete lack of traffic on the A12. Home in 40 minutes through a Friday rush hour!

    Someone posted this on my Facebook seems a reasonable excuse to me and has cheered me up a bit.

    Indeed. I think most of us have seen the snow today?

    However I guess it will be about how we were all affected by it. We are watching QI on Dave.

    Whole country's gone blinking mad. Now watching it all again on the 10 o'clock news! In the words of the great Victor Meldrew, "I don't believe eve it!"

    The BBC really is a great steaming pile of dog do-do - they don't do news reporting anymore - they just pay over salaried monkeys to go stand somewhere and tell us the bleedin' obvious.

    It has started here too. Small flakes. According to the forecast we can expect a heavy fall today.
