The mother in law has just rung us worried that we would be snowed in. Silly southerners and their wimpy ways.

Took the dogs up to Queensbury for a walk in the snow earlier - tons of it up there - abandoned cars and huge snowdrifts

We had a brief flurry of ###### yesterday morning & I predicted the lazy apse bus drivers would be straight into the depot abandoning all passengers by the road by lunchtime, I was 24 hours too early.

No snow today but it seemed it was too cold for the lazy bug gers, and half the drivers were calling it quits when they got within calling distance of a hot coffee & a smoke. They really are idle around here, more than most bus drivers, because I think their Union has a tighter grip when they were transfered to Stagecoach than anywhere else in the country.

There are no buses running after 9pm, very few on Sunday (least of all to the Hospital where the first bus on a Sunday arrives at 10am), the Bus from the hospital during the weekday has a 3.5 mile run to the town centre, of which there are 4 built in smoke breaks for the driver (Ashdown House - Child Support Agency -, Silverhill (Where the depot is located), Top of Pevensey Road, and Warrior Square, there is also a 5 minute break at the train station for all routes. If a Bus is late to it's destination, the driver is still entitled to a coffee break of 15 minutes before he turns the bus round.

LAZY Lazy lazy zzzzzzzzzz

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. :dry:

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:

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

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 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?
