dumping it down here in Hook (Hampshire)
Now then, it's a race between Sandie....and Fairburn....and the little man is in........yeees he's in.

I, just like those Castleford supporters felt that the ball should have gone to David Plange but he put the bit betwen his teeth...and it was a try

The real Mick Gledhill is what you see on here, a Bradford fan ........, but deep down knows that Bradford are just not good enough to challenge the likes of Leeds & St Helens.

I worked in Brighouse for seventeen years. Quite often it never got any snow when we had two or three inches of the stuff in (west) Bradford.

The worst thing was working late, never realising how bad the roads would be once I got past Odsal.

Brighouse can be fairly lively at night; one of our female staff used to refer to it as "Dodge".

Snowing lightly, but enough to settle, here on the Herts/Essex border. I may knock off early if it gets heavier.

fair old blizzard here in wigan :huh:

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

Perhaps an inch or so in Ealing, west London. I've got the day off too, might take my nephew for a snowball fight if it keeps up.

I was in your area (Farnborough) last they had a bit if snow - it was like Armageddon! The panic in the office the afternoon it started you had to see to believe. Problem was every single person headed out onto the roads early to get home and caused grid lock. It took some people until the early hours of the next morning to get from Farnborough to Basingstoke. The trains did a good job of keeping going though, I managed to make it home to the north west the following day with only slight delays.

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.

We use the wife's car in the winter for most things. Audi TT, 4wd with winter tyres. It's fantastic in the snow and ice.

Arguing with the forum trolls is like playing chess with a pigeon.  No matter how good you are, the bird will **** on the board and strut around like it won anyway

Yes I remember you posting at the time. I heard stories of it taking people 8 hrs to drive home 6 miles.

I left my car at work, walked 1 mile into town and caught the train to Hook (Hampshire) - took me about an hour!
Now then, it's a race between Sandie....and Fairburn....and the little man is in........yeees he's in.

I've been quite happy with my 2nd car, (Nissan X-Trail with winter tyres on) for the last couple of winters. You just need to remember that gravity has a bigger effect on a heavier car when going downhill, especially in slippery conditions. :lol:

Nice

I remember years ago a bloke I knew told me he loved the snow because "it makes my garden look just as good as everyone else's." :)
