    The message has just gone up that should it snow parents can collect their kids early. Fingers crossed for an early dart for the staff too but it seems unlikely. The snow gods have already given us one snow day it seems were aren't lucky enough for two!

    Some of our staff claimed not to be able to get in, due to snow and ice in their village. So, rather than let them be the townies they are, they sent the site manager in a 4x4 and collected them.

    They hadn't even tried to clear the ice or snow from their drive. The main road into the village was blocked, but a secondary road was fine...

    Isn't it more that people dont suspect them than expecting them?

    Well I drive this to work, so I've not got much of an excuse for not turning up when it snows.

    I'll believe it when I see it! Preston seems to be a black spot for snow actually sticking. Its snowing now fast, but its not going to stick.

    That Photo was taken at Beacon Fell on Monday where there was about >2"
