Not to sure why you got stars for your post.
Anyhow. I was pointing out how stupid we are as UK residents to worry about any of this cold weather. My girlfriend who lives in sweden shows me pictures around now regularly of bad weather snow in crazy amounts, they are not prepared for it no more then we are, yet they don't moan about it. They get up, shovel tones of snow and go on with there day, we see a trickle of snow and say ''right, im not going to work today!''..... It's just amazing to me, people are going soft.
That's what I was laughing at.

Deepest Norfolk...a smattering...not even a covering.
Monday, 2 hours to get 20 miles.
Today, 2 hours again. Apparantly buses do not like the extreme cold, of not quite zero. I dread tomorrow because the temperature might be -1.
3 hours do you think?

Get a grip Sandwell Council!
Now.. Im dreaming of a full on snow fall so I can take a sneaky day off and teach the kids arctic survival, snow graves, ice breaking drills in the canal, followed by a live firing snowball excercise...

I live in the north east UK and its pretty bad here. The snow is literally up to your knee everywhere, however I have heard that the councils have double the amount of grit that they had last year and have even more on order so that should not be a problem however the latest weather forecast (i know they do get things wrong) says it will be -20 in some parts of the uk and i was gobsmacked by this. Things are looking like they could last longer then 15 days aswell, there are lighning and thunder storms up here too and everytime one comes it brings a S*** load of snow with it.
