    Had another 4 inches of snow in the Cotswolds last night. Once again, getting to work has been a pain in the chuff. Bit fed up of the snow be to honest, nice when it starts, but it's been here for over a week now! Maybe it's time for it to melt it's little snow arse away!

    And it's still snowing. And will be most of the day. :crying:

    Quattro is nothing without good tyres sadly.

    I almost got mine stuck earlier and my lowests tyre is 6mm but they are still normal tyres

    Got to admit though, I saw some aweful crazy ass driving this morning during the school run. The entrance to the carpark where the kids are dropped off is on a slop, which was like a sheet of ice this morning, so cars was going up it one by one. And because of this, there was a queue of traffic on the road that leads to the slop, but some drivers need to go straight, and one twat though he'd be clever and overtake everything on the otherside of the road... until he saw a car coming towards him, so he slammed his brakes on, and I could see him go into a slide with the back end hanging out... he was lucky he caught the car and avoided hitting the queuing traffic! Moron.

    Its takes weather like this to show some driver's complete ineptitude behind the wheel. I have seen a few I think should be taken out to the pastures and shot.

    Sure is, although the main roads are fine....just the side streets that are ****.

    Oh, I saw a bloke in a brand new M5 take his front bumper off earlier. He parked like a tool across about 4 spaces outside some shops...as he drove away he slid straight into one of those really high kirb stones that are designed to stop a bus. Well it certainly stopped him...ha ha. I didnt have the heart to tell him someone had just karma'd the flip out of him for parking like an arse :)

    Just saw a poor old woman shoot out the junction at the end of my road and hit the kerb in her Nissa Almera. I was heading towards the junction exit at 5mph, and she panicked and floored, so I stopped until she could straighten up and be on her way again lol.
    There's also a chav who live opposite me who has a Ford Fiesta who just passed his test. Tried to power up the hill with wheelspin lol, he was going nowhere quick! I didn't bother helping him out, cos he was being a twat! Eventually gave up, reversed, and parked it back on the drive. So I went out, fired the Rav4 up and drove up the hill without breaking a sweat haha.

    LOL...I dont get what the deal is with the parking, I understand its a bit slippy, but 2-3 spaces WTF????

    Even at work, the car park normally has a couple of hundred cars in it, but at the mo, theres about 100ish and its full!!!!

    Did you not know? Even the snallest amount of snow makes it physically impossible to perofrm any sort of manouvering. It's just a case of hit and hope!

    Even so, common sense dictates that parking 8 feet from the next car is a bit daft?

    We've just had a few inches of snow that fell overnight. Considering there's no mention of this on the national news, I've a feeling it's just the NE that's had some severe snow. Is it snowing where you live?

    This is the third time we've had snow. Taken this morning:

    It was treacherous out our way this morning, not much snow, but the roads were skating rinks. I nearly joined two cars in a ditch and almost got t-boned by an artic on a roundabout!
