It’s a little bit chilly.

Standard

According to the radio, it was -20 on the A15 last night. I’m off work again because the railway lines are frozen. Tried to get in by bus yesterday, to save money – nightmare. 5 hours to get to work, and 4 to get home, due to the cxxt titled gentleman who pinched the “no buses here, go to the main road” sign at Newark North Gate, and the Stagecoach driver who drove straight past me at Newark Wharf. Never again. I’m going back home and putting the kettle on (once a bus shows up).

Does anyone know if it’s been snowing?

Standard

There are no buses running in Lincoln or Newark.
The Highways Agency have given up trying to keep the road open in Market Rasen.
Cross O’Cliff Hill is blocked by a lorry, and Yarborough Hill by a fallen power cable. Emergency services are still trying to get there.
I don’t know how Nottingham is affected, or if the trains are running, but the boys’ slide has 4 inches of snow on the handles.
The DJ on Lincs FM just called trying to get down Lindum Hill the scariest 5 minutes of his life.
You weren’t planning on going anywhere today, were you?
