    I would be less worried about the snow and more worried about coming here in general!

    We had heavy rain, 8 degrees when I set off for work, an hour later it was 2 degrees and snowing pretty heavily... It might still come :-P

    It's snowing here in Rotherham. It's not settling on the roads or paths but parked cars are becoming covered and so are gardens, school field etc..

    I'm heaving a huge sigh of relief as OH has just returned from Australia for Christmas... he walked through the door at 8am. We had snow yesterday evening, but not enough to complicate things at Heathrow or on the M25 thank goodness.

    He's noticing a slight difference in temperature!

    No snow until 3am today, about 2 inches. My hometown is usually pretty bad, so I thought that the main roads would (as usual) be OK. Foolish.

    The exit road (hill) I watched a Picasso go sideways out into a main road, then my Astra just let go and I honetly thought I was about to belt a wall. Recovered it.

    After that the roads were tracks in the snow. Until I got to the hill out of the valley. Fiesta in front with wheels spinning, wouldn't go forwards, did end up sideways obstructing the hill. Traffic crawling down it, I couldn't move due to this fiesta, traffic backing up behind me...we were sat there a good 20 minutes.

    Then a nice 4x4 flashed me out, and I was able to plod up the hill very gently, and plod into work at no more than 7mph. Fair few bent cars about..

    Not sure how I'm going to get home - my backup route to avoid that hill (steep, cars parked both sides, not wide) is according to 6-7 of our staff "f*cking impossible to drive up, we could barely move".

    I hate the snow.

    Snowing here now - coming from the West. My boss took 2 hours to get in from Weymouth as it was bad there.

    Not going to be an issue now. I am trying to take an exam at a Prometric test centre and the last three I have booked at this month have closed or temporarily closed. It is getting to be a joke. My last attempt is now Manchester on Tuesday.
