    What was the weather like today (did it snow)? How thick is the snow/ice? How is the weather forecasted tomorrow (like snow or not)?

    My mum went to Manchester on the train today and she got there OK. And the buses are running fine here on the outskirts of Manc in Cheshire. :correct:

    This is most likely the reason.

    Aye course they were. I went back to honour a promise to help out at a homeless charity and sure it was cold but we made it through.

    On side note as a guy with medium/long hair again; how do you stop getting "hoodie hair"!

    Thank you! Tomorrow is forecasted sunny in Manchester and Leeds, so it doesn't matter which route I take to get to Secret Location X!

    May take Leeds though, because you know what they say about the other:

    Yeah because our trams and trains don't grind to a halt when it gets a bit chilly.

    Rain is good - washes away snow.

    It's snow that makes my travelling experience bad!

    Can taxis drive in the icy roads, or not?

    By okay, do you mean taxis can travel up north?
