Interesting commute home yesterday between Oxenhope & Hebden Bridge. Stuck bus, stuck skip wagon, stuck cars, cars in ditches.... Same happens every year when it snows; you'd think by now people would be prepared if they use the road regularly, and fit winter tyres. *smug mode on* :lol:

*Smug mode off* The road was closed this morning, so I had to detour via Denholme to get to work. <_<

An inch or two of snow and once again Armageddon is upon us. Why can't we cope with anything any more?

As usual, the Mash gets it right.

And when they found our shadows
Grouped around the TV sets
They ran down every lead
They repeated every test
They checked out all the data on their lists
And then the alien anthropologists
Admitted they were still perplexed
But on eliminating every other reason
For our sad demise
They logged the only explanation left
This species has amused itself to death
No tears to cry no feelings left
This species has amused itself to death

I guess one reason is we don't get enough of it to practice.
Then again 10 minutes spent watching people s driving ability on a dry sunny day explains a lot. ;-)

With driving 'skills' like this, it's hardly surprising the country grinds to a halt with a light dusting of the stuff:

I'm snowed in again. Ventured out yesterday in a land rover and wound up in a ditch. Ouch. Sore shoulder today!

already started here in wigan supposed to be here in the morning coming down hard and sticking.

What does it mean
This tearjerking scene
Beamed into my home
That it moves me so much
Why all the fuss

According to the Telegraph, "London will be battered by gusts of wind of up to 23mph". It's a clear sign of the apocalypse. <_<

It's been fun (NOT) going to and from work this week. I've made it both ways every day, though Tuesday's journey home was a bit hair-raising. Today, though, I set off from Malton with the temperature gauge reading -11c and got to work with the temperature gauge reading -6c. However, driving through Bilsdale (between Helmsley and Stokesley), the gauge hit an eye-popping -16c. That is very cold! :o I wish I'd taken a photo of it for proof, but I know you will all take my word for it. :)

I'll believe you. The thermometer on my car hit -16 this time two years back on the M62 on the way over to Liverpool

That's me.  I'm done.

I remember driving to Birmingham and back a couple of years ago, was -19 when we set off from Pontefract and never got above -11 all day.

Off to London on the 7am train from Leeds tomorrow for a "team building" day.

Anyone else reckon I should sack it off and claim I was snowed in?

That's me.  I'm done.

Don't be a wuss. You scared of the 23mph winds? :lol:

You may well get there ok, but getting back could be interesting. I'v had the misfortune to have to try and get away from London on a Friday in weather like we have forecast for tomorrow. Not a good place to be I can tell you. If it were me I very much doubt I'd be heading off in this sort of weather unless I really had to.

Sometimes you have to wonder if people have death wishes. Overtaken today on a very icy A14 by a BMW 3 series that must have been going 90-100mph+. Those rear-wheel things are useless on icy roads yet this guy obviously thought that the laws of physics didn't apply to him.


Unfortunately, I have to get into work in London tomorrow as I have an interview over lunch with my current contract coming to a close soon. (anyone need a top end project manager?)

BMW driver, says it all. Cycling home yesterday by back wheel was all over the place. Might have to take the car in today but as its a rear wheel drive I'm a bit concerned.

I have 2 cars, so my MX5 sits in the garage all winter as it gets stuck easily on the track to our house due to the low ground clearance and can be a bit of a handful if you're not giving it 110% concentration, as it has none of these new fangled electronic driver aids. Someone in our village however uses one, which at 13 years old is a similar vintage to mine, all year round and simply fits winter tyres to it. If I only had the one car, that's what I'd be doing: the bit that touches the road is probably more important than which of the axles are driven.
