We had about that much last night... but it melted on the pavements too quickly.

Just over an inch here - very fine snow that makes poor snowballs Took a while to clear the car, found under the inch on the windscreen there was a thick layer of pure ice so a little while longer to defrost it. Then the realisation that my shoes and socks were then sopping wet - run back into the house for a change into the scruffiest yet grippiest footwear I can find.
No, it doesn't mean I'm running around school in slipper socks

You should. Then you can slide past classes while remaining perfectly still... Freaks the kids out, especially if you look a bit angry.

Couple of inches in Lincs... which means traffic everywhere is horrible.
So given the factors of...
- Lincolnshire drivers are idiots and will still be driving two foot from my back bumper
- Side roads are icy and every road into my town of work is downhill, so all traffic gets funnelled down one road, and it takes an hour and a half to get from edge of town into school (should be 5 minutes)
- There's a switch in the wiring cab by my desk that's got a newly whining fan, that gave me a headache all day yesterday, and has 48 things plugged in so can't be fixed till next week
- I'm only remoting into servers today anyway to play with SAN/SCVMM/Hyper-V
...I'm working from home god bless LogMeIn!

We had a fall of 'snow' last night - about a millimetre. Gah. Useless. I was looking forward to an early start to the holiday

I bought my focus from my mother and she hates it when I'm smug about not having to scrape the windscreen ^^

Scrapping your car is a bit much just because it snowed!!

Loving the snow, even if cleaning it off your car with bare hands is tad painful.
