    A bit down in Kendal - not huge amounts but enough for us to close for the day! I think that is the 1st full day in about 9 years here!

    I've postponed my planned visit today because of this...

    Every year, without fail, the idiot "100mph is the norm" brigade have to relearn the laws of physics and friction (or lack of it) and kill a few dozen innocent people before Darwin thins out the more reckless and everyone slows down.

    Yeah I hate people who take care and think about their own and other's safety*

    Last weekend we had thick fog, was going about 30 on the A46 with everyone else when some idiot comes past at least 80 with no lights on!

    I have no issue with people going to Hell under their volition but I resent people trying to take me with them.

    Cool

    Hi All,

    Well im in Pontefract at the moment, its snowed a decent amount here and were still open, it did take me 90mins to get into work, it usually takes me 30mins.

    Im hoping the weather man is right and we get proper snow later so I will have to get home as it can get bad near me!

    Dan

    Tim... remember those folks I was talking about with the whole Darwin thing... Would you like to go on the list now or later?!

    I'm pretty sure slush is no better or worse than snow especially in these temps... You take your ruddy time regardless.

    Plenty of snow where I live, so even if the school was open I wouldn't have been in work today.

    Oh and as for the Golf R32 comment in the snow - [ame="http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=y6aKIHSd1Ig"]YouTube - Volkswagen R 32[/ame]

    Huh? I'd say slush is just as, if not more dangerous than, snow. You end up with a reduced amount of friction due to a semi-liquid surface below your tires, with the possibility that it may be covering up ice too. So you end up not only with the possibility of skidding on the icy aspect of it, but also end up with the possibility of hydroplaning. Seems pretty dangerous to me!
