    Wow!, the snow is coming down heavy at this end, just closed my shop up early so my staff could get home, and it's not going to stop until 5am apparently, with 6-8Inches on the way. Despite gritting of the main roads, I was seeing all types of cars from BMW 3Series, Merc C Classes, MG Rovers and even a Double decker Bus wheelspinning all over the place! I was having loads of fun though, snaking it all the way home in my crappy Toyota Rav4 haha, overtaking everything on stratford road! :racer:
    Infact, I was the only 4X4 out on the road!

    Looks like another closed School day and possible non working day for Midlanders, if it doesn't clearup by 7am.
