  • We hardly have enough grit boxes and as for a snow plough..I haven't seen one anywhere. I doubt they'd have them up North in Scotland to be honest or in Wales.

    It's ridiculous. Grit will not work as effectively in minus temperatures and a snow plough would be too be for just a standard sized main road. The difficulties are with cul de sacs, any road that's on an incline or gradient.

    I live in a sort of cul de sac at the top and my step dad has been out pushing cars up the hill that have been stalling. What a hero!!

    If more cars had those traction tyres it would be a good thing.
  • Danged nice of your step-dad!

    Oh no!  Up here they pour the salt/sand mix out of the back of these huge snow ploughs.  Salt works at just about any temperature, it's just kinda harsh on everything.  Personally, I just stay off the roads almost completely until it clears, like April/May.

    Yeah, everyone wants to go the regular speed even in the middle of a snow storm.  It's funny that people with four wheel drive forget that it really doesn't help that much when you are attempting to stop if you are going sixty.

  • Hahahaha!  Not exactly twenty inches, now, is it?

    Don't you just love how the  grass stays just fine and green under snow?

  • Ah well you see- do you think it is a real fox or not? 
  • I was actually wondering if it might be a statue but it just looks very real.  Your last picture is not showing up.

  • I'm not seeing those FB pics for some reason.
    Temperature has gone back into the positives here in NE Essex today. A barmy 2.7 degrees. Get the beds out!
    No more snow and wind has dropped and the thaw is underway. We are promised 6 or 7 degrees tomorrow.

  • @UT you should see them now.
  • Well, on the bright side (boy, do I look for the silver lining or what??!), S, you picked a perfect day to burn a lot of time learning the arcane, rigamarole structure of posting pictures on this site.  It sounds like there wasn't a lot else to do.  It seems like you figured out a way to do it, also.  Good for you!

    Not a bad nor'easter at all here.  No power outages, no trees down (one is kinda tilted), no snow or precipitation of any kind.  Kind of a fun windy day!  This is the time of the year, with sticky wet snow, that we can get some real damage done, if it were to snow with high winds.

  • I can't get out of the house to be honest... Plus nobody can really get to ours. I was dallying about looking at Dropbox and discovered a pile of old photos and thought I'd share them which has resulted in battling with this website for an hour and a half.

    I think I'm done with it.
  • Awww, com 'on.  You had blogspot working!  Also, photobucket's not bad.  Iuv or I can help you with that one.  It's been a long time so Iuv might do a better job, but I would try.  It has been a community effort.  I hope we don't have to wait until the next snow storm.  That could be years!!  JK, whatever suits...

  • The heavens have opened up now with torrential rain. I dunno which is worse. Snow or rain.
  • I love it.  With the nor'easter coming, one site says 18 to 26 inches and the other says 2 to 6?!?!  This is tomorrow we are talking about.  Oy ve.
