It's Just Started
« on: January 05, 2010, 09:16:17 PM »
Snowing that is.
But a only a very thin sprinkling.
I've kind of geared myself up for travel difficulties tomorow after watching the news and am hoping for a "snow day" in my jimjams.
Can the Northerners please blow some down this way so I can have a lie in.

Seems to have stopped already.
My boss lives up the road from me so I can never use tube trouble as an excuse when he makes it in!

You really don't want it; whilst it's great to build a snowman/go sledging/have snowball fights, having to go to work or just the supermarket is a nightmare - taking literally hours to get a few miles down the road (how people with young kids to pick up from nursey/childminder after work are managing is beyond me).

I've never seen the roads in such a state, it's terrible at the lack of gritters out there.  Feel so sorry for oldies too, it's treachearous for me at 39, never mind some old dear of 75 who needs a loaf.

I'm normally in the 'it's only a bit of snow' camp (in fact, I was saying that at the weekend when my Mam was saying I wouldn't be able to drive anywhere), but this really is bad - took me 30 mins to get my car clear of snow and ice and get it moving yesterday morning!

Took me a good half hour to do a 10 min journey to work this morning and then I got sent home at 12pm

Am gobsmacked. This is the NHS we are talking about :o :o

Hi Diane i'm with you althought not EXACTELY for the same reason, mine would be more to go and play in the snow with J. Why should only the notherners have the fun  and the days off  ;) ;)

Well I had half a snow day, left work early to avoid any possible tube trouble.
It's all stopped here now. Much as it seems quite pretty and I fancied a bit of  Jeremy Kyle today I really can't imagine how some of you are coping, us Londoners really have been let off lightly.  Couple of days of it and that's enough for me so hope all of you suffering in the snow are bearing up ok.
Sending lots of 'warm' wishes.
