    Husband already thinks I'm bonkers. If I started taking photos of gritters he'd have me commited (should that have two t's) Mind you we could start taking down reg numbers and start a new group of spotters like Stobarts have..... In fact perhaps the gritters should all have boys names.....

    No snow here - just freezing cold and bitter in the wind.
    My poor daughter, after her hour and a half wait at Southampton, was on a train that stopped for ages and when she got to Brighton, her lift couldnt make it due to the weather so she had to wait for a local train, and then walk for 15 mins in the cold with a heavy backpack and two heavy bags. She must have felt that the day would never end.

    The list for East Sussex seems to be getting longer when I looked at the Council website just now!

    My Twitter has just gone mad with people saying they are stuck on the A23 southbound in Sussex due to snow. Looks like that area is getting a right beating from the snow at the moment.

    i wouldn't of said that! We have about 2 inches max but for some reason there was no gritters (apparently they were stuck in the gridlock!) and it all became gridlocked pretty quickly for what appears to be no apparent reason.

    I live less than 3 miles from A23

    Son's school closed.

    We have a blizzard outside. The main roads still haven't been treated.

    My school, the one with the one in four hill between buildings, is open! Fortunately, I'm not in today... although I'm anticipating a call to ask if I can go into help out if they don't change their mind.

    According to the radio this morning - it was a problem with a hill at Crosshands (?) The snow turned to ice very quickly due to the temperature and no one could get up it. Of course gritters could not get through the traffic to sort it out either.
