Although I do feel sorry for those folk caught in the snow in their cars, all I can think of is the red and amber warnings and “are they thick?” Too many clips of stranded people with no supplies

My wife said it was a good 8-10 inch deep outside our back door.  I got a smack on the head for sniggering.  Didn't help that I'd just seen this:

Call the RSPCA

Might aswell bump this. Darn sarf have a quarter of an inch so it shares half the entire paper with the royal foetus.

Have you rung Obama to send in the National Guard to help yet? ;):)

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

Where were you last Thursday?

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:

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

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

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

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?
