- GO OUTSIDE AND YOU'LL DIE!1oNEe!
aye not that cold, but been raining, felt it icing up as i was walking home earlier, I actually just walked up the side of the road as opposed to the pavement. Why doesn’t road ice up as much as pavements? Is it just volume of traffic or are they made from different stuff?
fairly mild today/tonight compared to what it has been aswell.Posted 2 years agoarrpeeMember
First leg of my morning commute was hi-larious. Driving rain and sleet falling on freezing ground. Pavements and roads both utterly lethal. Saw a guy trying to stand still on a slope, but he just slid down it whilst doing a slow-motion splits.
I find that the best approach is just utter arrogance. You have to stay loose and walk as if there’s literally no possibility you could fall.Posted 2 years agoprawnySubscriber
It was almost all gone by me last night on my way home from work, then it bollocked another few inches down from about 7:30. Absolutely lethal this morning, no way I was taking the bike today.
It’s even kept the postie out of our street this week, they didn’t bother to even attempt to deliver my new brakes yesterday.Posted 2 years agogrenosteveMember
It snowed, settled and then melted in the rain overnight in Sheffield, leaving a thick layer of slush.
It wasn’t icy or slippery though… until I hit a corner while daydreaming about work and went down! Sliding a few metres through ice cold slush wasn’t fun, I’ve never been so wet and cold on the bike. 🙁 Not hurt though, so that’s ok.Posted 2 years agohowsyourdad1Subscriber
last year near me where people where ice skating on the roads to get around.
It’s fairly normal here around November time. difference is we don’t try and travel and think we know best. Sometimes nature wins!Posted 2 years agoPyroSubscriber
No death, but various injuries in our office this morning. What little snow there was has gone, but wet pavements and an overnight freeze meant they were horrific this morning. I ended up on my ‘arris, as did a few others. One women suck a hand out to save her fall and broke her wristPosted 2 years ago
