Yes, Temeraire, go to Sainsbury’s before the snow!

Bloody Hell! I'm waiting for car parts to be delivered but it looks like they might get delayed due to the UK shutting down to a little bit of iced water :evil:

In England life packs up during snow. The schools close. Some bus companies don't run. Even taxi services get cancelled. That was what happened today. I think it was only 4 inches of snow where I am. The UK may not get as much snow as Siberia, but it is not a stranger to snow, as we usually get a few inches of snow nearly every winter, maybe a few winters might pass with no snow at all, but we still get enough snow each decade to know how to cope with a few inches. But, no, everybody freaks out. You should have seen the people in Tesco at the week-end, they were all pushing, filling their trollies up, and the queues to the tills were just manic. I despair. I was only in there getting some milk because I had ran out.

The whole of the UK has been hit with snow today but in Scotland we've also got a first-ever 'Red' warning for people not to venture outdoors at all until the warning is lifted. Although it's definitely extreme weather,there didn't seem to be any attempts by the authorities to grit the roads - much easier just to tell people not to travel.

They're not freaking out over the snow, that's how Tesco shoppers behave every weekend, with the stuff piled up over the top of the trolley falling off all over the place, and they're still throwing more stuff in instead of looking where they're aiming their trolley. And then there's the mobility scooters speed reversing round corners.

And cheaper, so it's a good plan :D

I go out in the snow in my sneakers (trainers) lol

I’ve gone out in 75 cm like that. And mounds of 10 feet or more.

The only problem is that I have to clean them afterwards; otherwise, they stink.

If they don’t plow, driving is problematic at 10 cm accumulation, unless you have 4-wheel drive.

Ram Tam, as it happens. I always preferred Best myself... Landlord too strong for casual quaffing.

It's 4.3% - wouldn't really call it strong. If it was, say, 6% I understand why some people would cut back.
