    Our place is closed, actually there is naff all on the website yet which is very poor just an email from the principal to all staff distribution list (Despite the fact all the students have an email and a all students distribution list too...oh never mind!).

    I think this could quite possibly be the best Monday morning ever

    Well, we finally got the snow today - though our council seem to be rationing the grit as, despite the amount of gritters that have been whizzing past, we still ended up with enough snow to cover the tread of my tyres resulting an an impromptu 180° slide out of my street onto the main road!

    Fortunately I wasn't going very fast and didn't collide with anything or anyone!

    Though the guy approaching me suddenly realised just how fast he was going as he tried to brake without hitting me and skidding off himself!

    We are open today (Worcester). We had light snow for most of Sunday but it didn't start to pitch until late afternoon as the temperature dropped, so we only got a light dusting. It's the really difficult stuff to scrape off the windscreen.

    That's what I was expecting to get up to this morning (a dusting of snow is worse to remove than ice!)
    About an inch round our way and was still falling as I left...

    School open, as expected. Lessons delayed until period 2 but most staff getting in without any issues.
