Only 1 coke cans worth to show for 9 hrs snow.

I think I like snow cause it brightens the evenings right up into daylight style proportions. Makes me happy.

As gawk said, 4 inches of snow in Brum. I'm hoping it's here for tomorrow to take the kids sledging then it can fuck off.

Brum council have done nothing all so the roads are fucked. I walked past an ambulance stuck on a slight hill near snow hill redevelopment, not exactly the best night to have a heart attack.

They gritted the fuck out of the streets in these parts but snowed heavily enough that it lay eventually regardless

I saw a bloke with a pickup truck yesterday that had a gritting contraption bolted on the back of it and about 20 bags of grit in the bed. Was weird…like he was doing his own personal gritting.

yeh, the streets in Brum were a nightmare. Took me 35 mins to get from my unit in Digbeth (5 mins from the custard factory) to the five ways island!
