Snow day!

Post by Sly Boots » Fri Feb 01, 2019 6:51 am

:D

Looks like 4-5 inches deep in Basingstoke, but still coming down. Awaiting a text from the kids' school, but to be honest there's no way I'm trekking miles in this with them in tow. So snow day it is!

Edit: and text from the school just came through... closed! 8-)

Sadly for me it is "Fuck, snow".

Am supposed to be taking my car to Ford today for service, MOT and a new cambelt, but no way am I going anywhere with the roads like this. My ST is tuned, and I know from previous experience that the second the turbo spools up, any kind of ability to drive in snow vanishes. The annoyance is that it was meant to have gone in yesterday but they called me at the last minute and told me the hire car I had booked was unavailable, so now I have to re-book it again because of their fuck-up. Not pleased.

Nothing down here. It's just a bit cold. Being by the sea has its upside...

That's some unlucky shit Snowy.

Just cold here, had a bit of snow few days back but it vanishes before midday.

Nice and deep. Not deep enough to stop me going to the office, but it looks lovely and I overslept so WFH today :)

That's weird, I had a dream last night where I was at work and it went from sunny and windy like Friday really was to a snow shower.

No snow here, except a mild sleet for about 30 minutes.
