    I once drove over the Wolds from Scarborough to Chesterfield in a Berlingo with 2" on the road and more coming down!

    The worst that happens is you get an unexpected swim in Ladybower! Who wouldn't want that in a snowstorm?

    Try driving in weather like 2 years ago (december time). RWD Merc, on ice, on the m6. Every single car was stacked in the mid lane. No one went on the lower or upper. Spun out when going above 10mph. We must have held up traffic for about an hour just by correcting the spin out lol Why?

    It pooped it down on the way back from Lemington Spa.

    I've had an e-mail from my head already, which is unusual
    Dear Matt

    Hopefully I won’t be contacting you but its forecasting heavy snow for tomorrow light from 6.00ish and then heavy by 9.00. Low temperature and wind so if it arrives it will stay and may drift!

    Website Ready!
    So fingers crossed for a long weekend...!

    I'll have to see if the kids school is going to close tomorrow first, but it's at time like this I think the gods I have a 4x4
    I just started cycling back to work this week as well!
    Any other areas looking at getting some of this?
    I think you jinxed it! The snows pathetic so far!

    Well that was anti-climactic. The only problem I had driving in to work this morning was at a temporary 4-way traffic control for roadworks; the cameras on the lights had gotten covered with snow so were only letting half a dozen cars through at a time.

    Bah!

    I am so very sorry. There was quite a bit on the ground at 4am though. Then it sleeted and got warmer. Now we just have horizontal light snow that isn't sticking

    Phoned in this morning and the head closed the school for kids and staff but now snow has disappeared. Feel bad being off for nothing. Internet has gone down here so I can't remote in and the caretakers already locked the school so I can't go in anyway. :/ we were meant to break up today for 2 weeks so I guess Easter is starting early!

    Partial school closure here...staff in but not years 7-9.

    Came in to the Server room this morning, to find temperature alerts on most of the servers! (we have no air con!)

    But the alerts were for being TOO COLD! not too hot.

    That's a first, usuallly 30C. reading 6C this morning. The strong winds had blown a window open and decided to dump snow all inside!

    It's ridiculous here to be honest, they sent out an email quite late saying 'Set off? Might as well come in and work until 12. Not set off? Don't bother!'

    So essentially the ones (me!) that made an effort to come in are being made to work but if you were lucky enough to read the email before getting in you can have the whole day off?!
