Oi vey! Again with the snow?!

Just as it seemed to have started melting, enough that I (somewhat prematurely) decided not to wear boots to go collect the car from the garage.

Well, good news is I collected it, it even came in rather cheaper than expected thanks to a helful and creative salesguy looking to sell service plans and the associated discounts (also fits in with my expectation I'll be hanging on to the car for another 2-3 years) and I even seem to have managed to go whole night with no further breakin attempts (mind you, it wasn't in a hotel car park - that will be the big test next week!).

Bad news is that, looking at the snow even now, I don't think I'm going anywhere any time soon. The roads round here have been gritted just once and that was on Monday when the snow was melting!

Just as bad up here. They are only gritting main routes and we have had freezing rain, so basically the roads here are like ice rinks. Cars, buses and even gritting trucks are simply sliding off. One car ended up on a factory roof. People had to get on their hands and knees to cross roads in Huddersfield.

And, yes, more snow tonight...

Will this ever end?
