I, like a fool, walked all the way to work in the snow. Walking down the main road was like bloody question time with people winding down their windows asking me how the roads were up ahead. Can't blame them though, the roads were in deadlock.

Its really deep now where i am. Its several inches and its still snowing steadily. at least it gives me an excuse to do nothing all day :p

From what I've seen so far (and it may have changed, bear that in mind), the snow that England and Wales are getting is the snow that us in the north of Scotland get every Winter. I mean, I remember watching a news report that consisted of SHOCKING N00Z - DERE'Z LIEK SNOW EVARYWHARE!!!11 and the amount of schools and colleges that had been closed was unbelievable... yet up here we deal with that every Winter. :p Nothing gets closed up here with that kind of snow, we have to deal with it.

Pansies! :ton:

Our main town has been gridlocked with most schools closed.

I've just taken my dog for a walk in it and it felt like I was in Narnia!!!

Still no snow and the frost has melted. :(

Its still snowing here and getting thicker. Most or all nearby schools are clsoed, which is good news if you go to school i guess :p

Here in Germany we have a lot of snow too. And they predict there will be snow for the next few weeks aswell. They also say there will be a snowstorm this weekend. I'm a little concerned whenever I have to drive with my car. But in general I'm cool with snow :)

Snow up here in Scotland is getting beyond a bloody joke.

I was almost stuck at work last night. My boyfriend Mum IS stuck at work today.

It's annoying.

Go away.

They postponed off the Carling Cup semi-final matches because of this snow. I would've been going round the pub to watch Villa thrash Blackburn right about now had it not been for the snow! :mad:

Go away snow, you are not welcome in Britain anymore if you interfere with football.

digitizedboy
05-01-10, 14:06
It wouldn't have been cancelled if it was played at Villa Park. But I agree there, it sucks when games get cancelled. Especially if you're actually planned to go down the grounds. :|

...That and the fact that the snow is really bad up there from what I heard.

No one forces you to watch it you know.

But it is fairly ubiquitous. It annoyed me more when I didn't have any interest in football. It's pretty hard to get away from football at times.

T-Sex
05-01-10, 14:26
No one forces you to watch it you know.

Except that when im trying to watch the news they say about 1 second of news followed by hours of football scores. So if snow means that the news programmes will actually announce news now, its good.

Mad Tony
05-01-10, 14:27

It's only delaying the inevitable. Some Premier League games might get postponed so you're just gonna have to put up with more football than usual in a couple of weeks. :D

No snow down here. Bit of ice and hail this morning but that's it for the far south of England.

The longer it delays it the better.The more you have to put up with at a later date then.

No snow down here. Bit of ice and hail this morning but that's it for the far south of England.I don't think anywhere in the south has much snow now. It's all up north.

"The more"? So if its delayed, when it finally arrives they somehow prolong it for some reason? :whi:

Mad Tony
05-01-10, 14:35
"The more"? So if its delayed, when it finally arrives they somehow prolong it for some reason? :whi:No, that's not what I meant. Because there isn't as much on this week, there'll be more in the coming weeks, thus you'll have to put up with more in those weeks than you would've done had the games not been postponed.

It was -8 last night and -9 the night before, we of course had snow last night. No school as they were stupid and did nothing about the 2" of sheer ice on the car parks and school grounds, it doesn't help that the council haven't done anything. I think we are forecast more up to the weekend but that's as far ahead they can 'judge' yet it doesn't look like it's giving up after then either.

Here in northern Nottinghamshire there's at least 6 inches/15 cm. It wasn't so bad when I decided to pop out for extra milk etc around noon.

Worst idea ever. What should have taken twenty minutes took nearly an hour. And to cap it all my car couldn't cope with the gradient going back up my street (we live at the top of a hill). My car is now parked in the pub car park at the bottom of the hill, and will most likely remain there until the snow thaws, the roads gets cleared or I find a team of huskies to drag it back up :rolleyes:

As I type, the night is drawing in and the temperature is plummeting.

05-01-10, 15:27
I tried to make a snowman a couple of hours ago, and when it was looking intensely brilliant and almost finished i slipped forwards and crushed it. I was gonna have a snowball fight as well, but ill probabaly get killed in it somehow :p

Freezing here! About 5 inches of snow. There is a high chance the bus service may be stopped within the next few days if the snow carries on like this. Most of the schools and colleges are already closed (I just know mine wont though :rolleyes: I blame the new buildings.)

I just chucked some buckets of water out back garden to see how long it takes to freeze over. I'd laugh if my dog went sliding across it :vlol:

I want it to stop already. I made a snowman and now im bored with snow :p

Wait, what?

It has been snowing, I grant you that....

Ah, wait, maybe Kent gets a tiny bit :p
Meant to be heavy snow from midnight tonight though :p

The more you have to put up with at a later date then.

I don't think anywhere in the south has much snow now. It's all up north.
Not so, North Cornwall has gotten quite a bit of snow apparantly.
I don't want it to snow really. I've got too much to do. :o

Edinburgh (at least where I am in Edinburgh) has been covered in snow for just over two weeks. It's just stays there and builds up. It's very deep now.

05-01-10, 15:52
Woke up to about 6 inches of snow, checked the school website and it said "SCHOOLS CLOSED BECAUSE OF SNOW!" in capital letters... :p
It's closed again tomorrow too :jmp:

I don't think I've ever had a school close due to snow. And my chances are all up now, conisdering Im at college, and I don't think it works like that there.

05-01-10, 15:57
Ahhh Schools were ALL open here in Northamptonshire...
There was a covering over snow last night but not enough for us to close, and the council aparently said if the school shuts WE (The students) have to make the time up some other time... like holidays and stuff.
However..(This was rather funny:p) in our science class our teacher (tut tut!) got a phone call on his mobile from his wife... they live up in Lincolnshire and she called to say they had massive snowfall during the day so it could well hit here tonight, theres weather warnings everywhere and apparently it is is going to blizzard here from tonight until saturday... but my school in particiular is dangerous in snow and ice because of the way its set out...

anyways for any one travelling in the UK over the next few days... be careful:hug:

Ice is probably more dangerous than the actual snow, I mean snow can be walked on but Ice cant... I fell on my backside 3 times because of ice over christmas...
1st time walking TO someplace, 2nd time in the exact same spot on the way Back from some place... 3rd time... on an icy puddle with a cup of hot chocolate... OUCH!:(



Kinda strange... in the US there is 3 feet of snowfall in some places and the schools still open there...here in the UK we get inches of the stuff and the place is become a nightmare to get around!!!!

We have a few inches... again! We had some before Christmas, and it turned into ice making the pavements and roads awful to walk/drive on. Then it melted, and now we're back to square one with more snow. Great.

School finished early though. :)

I hate having to wait until the last minute before leaving to head for the bus for someone from school to answer the phone or for the radio to say our school's closed, they are never organised. They have a fancy website and don't update it, it's like 2 years out of date and the school status is normal - it's closed, not normal. :rolleyes:

I don't even think we are due snow either!:(

Here's expected snow for South-East...
Heavy snowfall is expected across parts of central and southern England and southeast Wales late Tuesday and on Wednesday. Accumulations of 5 to 10 cm are expected widely, with locally 10 to 15cm in central parts where there is a moderate risk of over 25cm. This is expected to cause disruption to transport networks and could lead to problems with power supplies. Outdoor events and activities could also be affected by the snow.

Every other country which has snow has proper facilities for it like snow ploughs and proper four wheel drive cars. Here we have kids who come to school in little pumps and no socks.....towns run out of grit/salt...etc etc. We just are rubbish at coping with it. Mainly because it so is rare over here that we just don't get geared up for it.

Woke up this morning everything is covered in inches of snow, and as I type we have a blizzard outside with lots of snow which has been going for 1hour so far.

Very exciting!

you lot prefer to be blanketed in snow than enjoy the Aussie sun:(

Yeah, because 30 degrees sounds like my idea of hell. *Hates any kind of heat*

We've got like 8 odd inches of snow here In Bucks. I spent two hours being attacked by small children. Good times.

Just walked home in the snow, again :/

So no, college wasn't closed, though there was hardly anyone there, its only 5 inches of snow for god's sake. Everyone acts like were suffering through an ice age.
