I laugh at people who get snow and ice.

I love that the entire country was shut down. Apparently London doesn't even have snow plows.

03-02-2009, 03:28:04
we don't. we probably even invented them. our solution is to throw salt and grit at cold roads.

03-02-2009, 03:34:02
You're supposed to do that after you push the snow off to the side. Then you can create these giant mounds of snow that turn into this awesome grey-brown icy mush. It's truly a beautiful site after the snow has been lying around beside the roads for a few days.

I've just told my school I'm not coming in.

Every school within 10 miles of here is closed but the one I work at (about 20 miles away), is staying open.

Birmingham council havn't even gritted the residential streets, only the main routes. As a result I can't actually get the car to the main road. Theres been three crashes on my road (one of which was my girlf who slid a company car into three parked cars).

The road is basically three inches of compacted ice and is hard enough to walk on let alone drive. No way am I risking taking the car anywhere today. if they had gritted the side streets I probably would have made it. As they havn't then I'm staying put.

This is the worst snow for 18 years. The last time we had anything like it I had a snowball fight on the way home from school. That wasn't even as bad as this, the school was open.

Oh my god, SNOW!!!?!???? :eek:

About 30 people out of 95 made it into work yesterday. I was one of the few. We were treated like some kind of heroes and were bought pizza and donuts. Pretty good day all things considered.

03-02-2009, 10:23:33
Hmmm, it's a bit difficult to say I can't make it to work when it's only a 20 minute walk away...:(

Still, walking through the park was beautiful.:)

Yeah, no one has been in the office the past couple of days, especially as I have to drive to Gatwick to get to the office.

But as I mentioned, not such a big deal for us as I work from home a lot or remotely a lot of the time anyway.

03-02-2009, 12:46:17
i want people to reward me with pizza.

03-02-2009, 12:48:00
You could ask people to throw it at you when you're on stage.

03-02-2009, 13:00:22
that would be quite an act.

You would have to rename your band to Frozo, though.

03-02-2009, 14:01:00
will you try to bite and gobble it "on the fly" while drumming on?

I was ill, and missed all the snow and the work pizza. :(

Around here 6 inches of snow is ice cream weather.

04-02-2009, 08:53:25
Different places have different climates. :eek:

05-02-2009, 01:49:35
Yes. We have this thing called the Sun.

05-02-2009, 09:02:40
looks like there are a lot of newspapers called Sun all around the world (http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=sun+newspaper&aq=0s&oq=sun+newspaper)

05-02-2009, 12:36:05
our climate produced western civilisation. you people are sun-drunk.

05-02-2009, 13:36:52
The snow today was ridiculous. So wet it turned to ice instantly when you stood on it, then to slush.

We have a Sun-Times. The sky is our clock.

Fucking snow! Why didn't we get any!?:(

One really good dumping on the monday night but mostly gone by the time I'd finished work Tuesday.

We had a bit Wednesday night and all I got was a chance to throw a few measly snowballs when we left poker. Bastards!

I think it is an anti Welsh thing - England has been vitually ground to a halt! It's not fair!:mad:

Yes, the weather is zenophobic
