Snow...

Postby rufio89 » Mon Feb 02, 2009 11:07 am

I LOVE snow. I'm so excited by all this snow haha.

AND my boss just came in and said that if the snow keeps up he'll have to send us home :D :D

I love the snow too; however its so cold at work today; someone turned ALL of the heating off over the weekend.

It took me 30mins to travel 5miles this morning (15mins longer than usual).

It's taken most people over an hour and a half to travel in when their travel time is normally around 30-40mins (about 8miles).

One guy who lives around 8miles away - internet recons it takes 16mins (he agrees) it took him 2.5 hours to get into work.

I'm very jealous you have snow, and I'm not even a snow fan. I'm not so jealous about the traffic problems you're having though! It takes me 5 minutes to get into work cos it's just around the corner. I used to hate being stuck on a packed bus that was constantly at a standstill.

lol another girl just arrived. She lives 15mins away - it took her an hour and a half to get in. Thank god I left early (I live near a few schools and the kids [aged 11-19] are so stupid they don't look when crossing roads and when they see cars they stand in the middle of the road). Hence I come into work an hour early (and leave an hour early) to compensate for the kids.

It's at least 6 inches deep here. I HATE snow :evil: Yes, it looks pretty, but it create so much disruption and stress, particularly if you run your own small business like I do.

I'm planning on making a snowman if its still ok when I get home :)

I don't understand how the snow creates such a fuss; I mean we have heard about it on the weather for a few days and people still aren't prepared. It's not like we get 3 foot of snow to cause disruption. It's only a couple of inches. We had sheet ice for about 2 weeks in December and it caused less disruprion than the snow today.

I haven't been able to go to work because there was no way I could get in! We have like literally at least 8 inches of snow where I am and it is still going! It looks so so beautiful though.

it causes distruption because councils don't prepare the roads properly where i live
there are only 7 out of 30 of us in and we are all the local staff

Where I live we only get snow like this about once every 20 years. Therefore it isn't economic for the council to have snow-ploughs and other equipment on standby, because they wouldn't get used enough to make it worthwhile. So I don't really blame them.

Oh were do you live Snail?

We have red/high alert weather warnings today and tomorrow with the snow.

Speak of the devil a gritter has just came down the road. We work on a business part near too busy roads - he obviously got lost because they certainly don't grit the business park (it's priate owned by the worse people ever).

I think the council here deal with the snow ok. They always grit the main roads I'll give them credit lol.

By 9 where we work there was 4 people in out of 23 people upstairs (downstairs apparently had more than 4 people and theres about 10 downstairs).

I hate the snow too, I couldn't get to work this morning, as all the train company said was don't go unless it is absolutely necessary and I wasn't going to go sit in the freezing cold station and wait for the never never train to arrive.

Feel really guilty though, and hate not being at work when I should be.

When we have snow back home it is a whole lot worse than this! We had snow when I was there over Christmas and we just wrapped a few chains over the tyres (mind you the roads are a lot wider too leaving room for error!). I love the snow but it's such a shame that when it comes over here it seems to make the country stop and stand still. Everybody panics!
