Went down to Marlow High Street earlier.
Nearly wet my self laughing at all those 4x4 drivers trying to drive.
Braking too hard and sliding, not using the gear box to slow down, no lights, indicators and all looking like they wanted someone to help them out.
Most were stay at home mummy's.
It is better than watching sport.

I just saw a snow plough with gritter go down **** Lane. I suspect it is more to do with the building project at the top than a service to council taxpayers though.

Fueling the fires of despair, paranoia, and feelings of "we're all going to d-i-e"..

That's BFP for you. And the rest of the scum press.

Not a single article in this green and pleasant land of how much fun, how pretty the snow is.

The Transport For Bucks interactive page shows some of the gritters, etc. Some are identified by the Rego numbers but others have nicknames like: Mitten, Snowdrop, Ice Breaker, Salty, Rosie Cheeks, Lambourgritter, Optimum Grit, etc. God to see that with snow ploughs they are finally taking the snow conditions seriously.

Including the one that drove straight through the police tapes, put there to stop people attempting to slide down it!

Surely that should be spelled:

(And what’s your problem with capital letters?)
