Bloody snow

! This post hasn't been updated in over a year. A lot can change in a year including my opinion and the amount of naughty words I use. There's a good chance that there's something in what's written below that someone will find objectionable. That's fine, if I tried to please everybody all of the time then I'd be a Lib Dem (remember them?) and I'm certainly not one of those. The point is, I'm not the kind of person to try and alter history in case I said something in the past that someone can use against me in the future but just remember that the person I was then isn't the person I am now nor the person I'll be in a year's time.

Normally I like snow although the cold does play havoc with my arthritis.  Generally though I like to see a couple of inches of the white stuff on the floor (stop sniggering at the back, I’m still talking about snow).

However, today is taking the piss.  We’ve had a couple of inches of snow but the council didn’t grit or plough the roads.  The result?  Mayhem.  It was taking people an hour to get out of the commercial park I work on.  It’s about 300 yards.  Getting off the estate wasn’t the problem (apart from the people driving sports cars and real-wheel-drive BMW’s but they deserve it for being poncy) but once you got off the estate the whole town was at a standstill.  The police were directing traffic at one point so the estate wasn’t blocked in.

Anyway, I was at work at 8am today and I left at 6pm.  There was no point sitting in traffic for an hour or more – I didn’t have enough petrol to anyway!  It took 45 minutes to drive home, 25 of which was getting off the damn car park and onto the road.  We saw one snow plough smoothing the snow off the ice underneath – it wasn’t even gritting – and that was it on a 45 minute journey.

    Stop do we all except if we have to drive to work in it. The fact is that we moan when we don’t have snow and then moan when we do but won’t spend (as a Highways Authority) the money to ensure it is safe to do so. Best stay with your 2 inches of trhe white stuff – maybe your safer.
