    I am so gonna sulk

    If it snows here and settles I am so gonna sulk as I sold my Suzuki jeep before xmas

    On the brighter side the BMW is rear wheel drive so might be worth a play.

    Failing that I wil go and play in the surf with me Waveski.

    Either way some fun will be had if snow does keep falling and settles

    OK school here is closed and I made it in without a problem [a little slower than normal on the way in, just had to use a little more care]

    Looks like I will have to go home again now though as my son's school is closed and my wife works in a bank [other rules apply for businesses I guess ]

    Ours is closed this morning :P Tho it's really not bad here so I'm guessing it because of the bleak weather forecast, i.e heavy snow midday.

    I've been told by the head to send an all staff mail out saying the school is closed/cancelled

    I was already on the unreasonably icy roads after confirming we were still open when our NM called me to tell me that the Deputy Head had decided to close after all (we normally have a 7am cutoff at which point if we haven't heard, we're open).

    I checked the school site, it says closed. I rang in at 6:10am though on the sicky line saying I can't get anywhere though. The roads are too dangerous and my car is not moving anywhere due to being buried.

    A days lost pay is cheaper then a car accident.

    Yup, we're snowed in too here in East London. My schools been closed. I wouldn't have been able to get in anyway. I just stepped outside and my feet completely disappeared in the blanket. My daughter is loving it!

    Got to the train station at my local town, got a call saying workplace was closed. No further motivation to go home required than that

    And this is West Yorkshire, so London must be bad!
