Have any of you experienced snow around where you live? Near me, it has started snowing.

Yes and the councils attempts at gritting main roads and bus routes have been... ineffective

I guess that's alright. Tbf, the snow I've seen is nice. Not minimal amounts, but decent. So if that's anything to go by, then perhaps it will be the same?

Wow. They should do a better job. Near me preparations have been done to a decent standard.

I don't know why, but I was content with seeing it lol. It seemed so perfectly timed.

A lot of councils are flat broke. Gritting and potholes tends to the first to suffer in winter (harder to divert resources from horticulture, as they've sacked most)

Our council got hammered a few years ago for simply not restocking the salt/grit, apparently they thought we could squeak by with out any. I wonder how many folk that killed... :rolleyes:

Can't understand why it's so bad cos they did send a gritter round earlier - maybe they forgot to put any grit inside it

Sounds silly, but yep, entirely possible they didn't have any/much grit to put in. but they need to go out and fly the flag anyway...

most of the staff doing it are likely temps dragged in from other roles. They won't be as familiar with the machines (like how to get a decent spread/stop jams) and frankly they know it's a crap temp job, there's no reason for them to try too hard. (You may have also noticed your local potholes no longer being filled with actual tar, just scrap)

Yeah, and long time, no see. My SPAG is getting much better, even without your teaching.

I know it's Christmas, but seriously, you're a private teacher for a reason. Do your job! 😂

That's good to hear.

I'm not even a "private teacher", but you do you.

Don't you miss me?

(Your favourite student!)
What are you then? I "paid" for it, not.
I didn't pay because it's for FREE. How kind of you...
