Sick of the incessant snow updates

I like this weather but hate the disaster type coverage on the news.
It provides them with safe, easy, local “news” to report on, looking serious stood next to an A-road in a Berghaus jacket.
Snow! In Europe! In January!
Whatever next?! Rain in summer? Maybe a day or so of sunshine in July?Posted 5 years agoLoCoMember
6″ near Cwmcarn, further 12″ due today and coming down hard at the moment, (in the middle of the Red warning zone 😀 ) working from home today as don’t fancy getting stuck at the workshop, off to find some snow chains for the van in bit. 😀
EDIT: oh yeah we’re dooomed, snowmageddon e.t.c 🙄Posted 5 years agoscuttlerMember
No wonder we’re screwed. From BBC moron publicity feed (why do I even read that shit)
“It was hard to slow down in these conditions without skidding; it seems a lot more distance is needed to slow down or to come to a full stop. A lot of drivers don’t seem to keep the safe following distance between them and the car in front.
The average speed of traffic was 35 miles/hr and still it was difficult to have control over the car.
Scary conditions, my advice would be only drive if you absolutely have to and if you don’t have experience in driving in the snow, don’t drive today.”
Thanks for that genius. I guess you have no experience having only just found out that it takes longer to stop in the snow and that it’s OK to drive at the same speed as everyone else even though you’ve recognised it’s difficult to control your car. Please stay at home. Div.Posted 5 years agoRusty SpannerSubscriber
Why are they called snow flakes? They’re not brown OR crumbly?
I dumped a load of them on Ms S when she was in the bath last night.
Did she smile dreamily and sink happily under the surface? No, she struggled like hell.
Very misleading tbh.
Snow now coming in from left to right if I face one way, or right to left if I face the other way.Posted 5 years ago
Same near you?molgripsSubscriber
Thanks for that genius
As I was out sweeping snow off the cars just now a bloke came DOWN our steep hill cul-de-sac to do a three point turn at the bottom, which is what people normally do in non-snowy weather.
He did seem surprised that he couldn’t drive back up the hill, but in all fairness he was Indian so may well not have experience of just how slippery it can be.Posted 5 years ago

Coniferous trees look pretty
There has been damage. A car slid into a parked car, driver had a quick look and drove off again. Gave his details to the neighbour that owned the parked car.SpongebobMember
We clearly need another major event, to give the news reporters something slightly more worthwhile to get stuck reporting on.
The non-news we receive these days shows journalists up to be rather condescending, suggesting how feeble minded and unintelligent we all are.
However, their inane questions and comments surrounding non-news subjects, that get such a disproportionate amount of airtime, gives us an insight about the substance of these people. I often bear this in mind on the now increasingly rare occasions when they are actually delivering hard news. I take everything that they say with great scepticism, especially the BBC with their ridiculous one sided leftwing bias!
I listen and read less and less news than I used to – its bad for your well being. CNN – constant negative news! Bad news sells and journalists keen to make a name for themselves with their sensationalist bullshit, distort and exaggerate with no bounds! Many of them are not fit to hold these positions of influence and should be held to account for the misery they inflict on us day after day.
Switch off and go ride your bike is my advice. Gets you fit, lifts your spirits and is a time to reflect, putting life into perspective. Now if only that snow would melt… 😀Posted 5 years ago
