    I know what you mean. We still got some snow from the weekend that has frozen on the pavements. Has been trying to snow here today already.

    Looks like we could have a problem on Friday in the West Midlands. Great. I could do with an early start to the holiday.

    I had some studdable winter/snow tyres fitted to the Astra in November...fair play to them, icy roads have been un-noticeable, as has the ice/compacted/frozen snow so far.

    Running them without studs - didn't get them with it, don't quite see the point really. I also have the autosocks in the boot (which worked well in the last snow we had when I had "normal" tyres on that were struggling - 3 standing hill starts on a ruddy steep hill while all around were losing it..)

    Just glad the missus and little person are at home tomorrow - I feel considerably less bothered if I know they're in the warm and not stuck in the car with me. It's not that I doubt my own capabilities...I don't. I've done skidpan courses, and taken the car out after "do not drive" has been issued, in deep snow when you can't tell hedge from road without issue for fun. It's all the other people on the road I doubt...hurtling past at 60/70 , when there's no tarmac visible.

    I don't have the studs in mine, they can be, BUT I was fairly sure that was illegal in the UK on the public road to have studded tyres, I know in some parts of europe its a legal requirement but that is why they came un-studded in the UK

    FAO of other drivers:
    - For goodness sake, try and get all your snow off your car before leaving. It's dangerous, not just for you but other road users.
    - No point having your lights on if they are covered in snow.
    - you do not need to drive so slowly when the roads are clear of ice and snow. You are driving dangerously. Yes drive cautiously but 25mph on a 70mph road is ridiculous.
