    Default Will anyone go to work tomorrow?


    Minus conditions. Snowy or ice roads. Will you be going to work tomorrow or will it be a monday club, duvet day?

    If the roads are white then I won't be risking the van, but if they are passable, i'll be going in.

    The schools are all closed here because of the snowy weather and dont think anyone with a vehicle will get far.

    Lasted 2 hours. All the buckets of water I brought in on Friday had turned into slush puppies. All the readymix had frozen inside the building. My hands almost fell off washing up some tools i leave in a bucket over the weekend. Doesn't look like it's gonna get any better. If it doesn't tiny tim won't eat this Christmas!

    3 days of snow and I cant get my bins emptied, mail delivered or a vehicle on the road.
    Is the rest of the UK getting their back streets gritted as well as the main roads? Just asking cos a snowplough is piling up snowdrifts either side of the street it would take a humvee and a shovel to get over.
    Schools are all off tomorrow as well so kids are delighted.

    The forecast for these parts is for the temp to hit -15. Looks like a few duvet days coming up.

    The snows a foot deep in the street and everyones panic buying from the shops like theres no tomorrow, I find this funny so god knows what the people in countries where it really snows make of our failure to cope. An internet connection, PC and a PS3 kept me company today.

    i agree unfortunately the local councils around these parts choose to grit/salt only some main roads and not others so either way you're f*cked and cant drive to work if you choose to use spikes or chains on your tyres. Canada was one of the countries I thought of earlier when I mentioned real snow

    To be fair 2 buck some places have had a lot of snow, but this country can't cope with snow fall the transport networks falls to pieces.
