    Snow day!!!!!

    Woke up this morning to find this! Always wanted a white S4.







    Good old council not gritted anywhere god bless em! So here I sit, don't fancy ploughing the roads with my bumper, 2" of clearance really isn't enough in 6" of snow! Everyone else having fun?

    I haven't the money to buy another set of wheels, and can't be bothered with raising all the suspension either! Just use the missus car if its bad out, but she left early and got stuck in a town 5 miles away! Time to fire up the xbox!

    I made it to work no thanks to some stupid middle aged woman in a Subaru who decided the gap I had left between myself and the car in front would suit her after the had passed 4 cars on the brow of a hill. I was annoyed and got out to ask what the Hell she was doing only to recieve a load of verbal and her tell me her kids needed to get to school. Surely they'd be better being late than not getting there at all. Fortunately for the first time ever a copper was where we needed him and stomped over. He told the woman to pull into the bus stop and told me to leave it with him. Somebody was in for a bollocking. What the Hell is wrong with people at the moment, bit of bad weather and peoples driving turns to crap.

    I woke up and my A4 had turned into a Mistsi with selectable 4 wheel drive ratios which came in useful.

    It's finally stopped here, just measured it, 7" deep, no one can move anywhere in the whole of my village, except the guy with a Land Rover who's having a wail of a time!

    Hasnt snowed here since Thursday, but the temp hasnt been over freezing, so got some nice hardpack ice on my drive, makes getting into my garage fun, not!
    Im the only one with half a brain in my flats, there is a massive yellow grit bin, which I am the only one to grit the roads!
    I hope it doesnt snow more! !

    Its the worst its been in the 17+ years I have lived there. Still loads out now (and snowing again as I type). The main roads are clear but getting to them is the problem which doesn't help when my P-Zeros have hit the wear limit. I was gonna be changing them last week but the snow came before I got a chance

    Here's another I took Friday afternoon just round the corner from me as we walked to the local shop:

    Cheers bud, I'm hoping it will stay looking good, too scared to drive it in this weather! Just been out in my works Ford Ranger to scope the roads, they're still looking like the roads above^^^^ Rather slippy, and loadsa ice built up down the centre of the roads, which my bumper isn't going to like! Hoping to get it to some more meets and shows this year, so may see you out somewhere.

    Bunch of girls!

    Thats a standard mild winter for us up here. This time round when the rest of the country came to a stand still we only had 6" and -8 deg C and everything was as per a normal day (with the exception of a little fun on corners )

    Its not uncommon to have in excess of a foot of snow in winter up here I remeber a really bad one about 18 yrs ago when I woke up to 3' of snow and -18 deg C, I still made it to work in my B2 FWD 2.2E Coupe
