    It is 100% slippery death outside! It’s like The Day After Tomorrow. What has GW done to deserve this?

    We actually did sack off tonights ride. It’s only -2c so not cold, but all the compressed snow had sleety rain on it today and the whole area is a skating rink.

    Been like that here for a few days which with my dodgy knee made me wary. Heavy rain is now sweeping it all away.

    yeah it was carnage in corstorphine earlier, proper comedy style people falling over and scrabbling to get up again. Busy night in A&E I reckon!

    GW?

    We banned Graeme years ago.

    Ditto here, bailed out the mince pie ride. Roads are like a skating rink and trails unlikely to be much better…

    This all seems mathematically impossible, I finally fitted my wintercontacts tonight, it should be a heatwave

    There is a risk of depression or drowning in Pembrokeshite at the moment. No ice. No snow. No sun. It’s particularly horrible.

    He has done many times. If he’s back now then he’s thus far evaded detection. Though his posting style generally outs himself quite quickly.

    Of course, as with any returning banned, we encourage you to out them. (-:

    37 degrees here today…. hotter than a dingo’s danglies.

    Am back to the UK for Christmas – it’s going to be a bit of a shock to the system!

    Driving up the m6 this evening I hit a blizzard between Telford and sandbach. I was feeling nervous with winter tyres on, then realised most of those around me were likely on summers and then I WAS nervous.

    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.

    A dude just crashed his tiny gritter into a hedge, trying to get up the road 😆

    Went out for a run last night.

    Out of the house fine, on to the road and nearly went for an absolute six. Managed about 1 mile and gave up.

    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.

    Rode out a particularly good two wheel slide on the commute last night, one foot out flapping like hell on the tarmac and a possible groin strain as a result, but I rode it out! 8)

    Bike left in garage this morning…

    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.

    Mines sat in cupboard(awaiting its day) 🙁

    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.

    Patchy sheets of ice round us including just outside the back door. Fortunately the lane was clear otherwise I’d be still at home.

    Doesn’t stop idiot drivers sitting a car length from your rear bumper though 👿

    I went outside.

    I died.

    I got better.

    This calls for an 11-day early memorial of George’s sad passing away last Christmas Day…

    So this is what happens when GW gets banned from facebook?

    A wheelbarrow makes a good set of stabilisers. It’s now sleeting to make it even slippier.

    It’s not totally helpful when trying to put the bins out though

    Bonkers on the school run this morning – pavements covered in black ice and people tottering around all over the place. The dog was dragging us along with legs moving at about x4 the speed they should have been going for the progress she was making 🙂

    Why has nobody told me that I could get contact lenses for the bad weather…,

    Buy Yaktrax or similar. I find the Due North Traction Aids with tungsten spikes the best for black ice, strolling past folk on their hands and knees. Careful when visiting shops with tiled floors though!

    My colleague in Birmingham is complaining she still can’t get her car out. Well, you should’ve shovelled snow when it was fresh then shouldn’t you? Instead of sitting there watching a problem happen.

    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!

    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 wrist
