Snow!!!

Recommended Posts

I dunno if I told you guys after the snow in Feb about the kid who tried to hit me with a snowball with my back turned...threw it back only to hit im square in the face and have his parents give me a load of crap about it lol.

 

Well he came back this weekend and started throwing them at my window...kids will really never learn. So I chased him down the road and buried him in some snow...he came back again so myself and a few mates pelted him with some snowballs :lol: Got his parents coming over yet again moaning at me saying I should know better at 19.

 

My opinion is if you want to take on a teenager older than you, then be prepared to take it all back lmao! I did at his age! Didn't go crying to my mum!

 

Kids :rolleyes:

:lol: Ya big bully. :P:lol:

Wow the snow is still causing Chaos here :S

 

I don't know how we would deal with it if we were getting snow like they are in the states!

Real highlight of the snow was fitness training in it at Loose, where it seemed to be a whole 3 or 4 inches deeper than everywhere else...probably due to the fact it is quite high up. Tried making a whole offensive line of snowmen but ended up giving up on it and fitness training itself for some more snowball fighting! lol!

 

A sensitivity trainer would tell you that the kid actually admires you and his aggression towards you is an attempt to get you to notice him and invite him into your inner circle...or he could be just an asshole.

Just got my car back home after having it stranded for 3 days!!

 

AA had to wait until a specialist vehicle was available to reach it and tow it out of the ice and snow.

London doesn't cope.....but the rest of the country which gets snow regularly carries merrily on

A certain grumpy flat-foot in Piccadilly Circus at 4am on a Monday morning last February comes to mind <_<

Anyone else remember him? We tried lobbing him from the other side of Cupid when some fool from the Sports Cafe decided to get a bit lippy. All the other Old Bill that night were tooting their horns in fun as we 'balled them on their way to Shaftsbury Av.

And quite right too. On two counts.

 

1. I get fed up with people moaning about blocked roads. You prefer that we spend £millions of our money to buy snow clearing equipment which can sit in a shed for 364 days a year, when we get snow like what - 2 days every 5 years?

2. I LOVE it when we get an excuse to stay at home :D .

Ah, happy memories :)

 

It took me 2 hours 15 minutes to get home tonight. I usually do it in 40 minutes. What really p****d me off was the amout of a-holes driving to the shopping centre to do their Christmas shopping!!! Look at the frigging weather and gridlocked roads! Listen to the police advice ; "only travel if absolutely necessary."! Seriously, cars with most windows steamed up so they can't see where they are going, cars with kids bouncing around in the back seat, and do you think i'm going to be able to stop quicker in this ice and snow when you pull out in front of me at the last minute without indicating in your crappy BMW...what is wrong with some people????

 

Rant over. I feel better now :P

Where was that? Near C-Nauld?

 

I got the train yesterday that went through Croy and it looked absolutely mental the snow you had up that way, the A80 too was apparently nuts, took a mate 5 hours to get from the Fort to Castlecary.

Wow! After reading these posts it seems that you guys really aren't used to snow. I remember back in the winter of '78 when we got a total of just over 10 FEET of snow. If we get a 4" storm we just shrug and call it "flurries". Secret Seagull is right; if such a storm is that rare then why spend a ton of money of something you'll use once. Stay home, crack open a good single malt and give your significant other a good roll in the hay...or two.

That's exactly where it was, near Croy station in the "overflow carpark" to be exact. Council said it was SPT's responsibility to grit and SPT said it was the councils :angry:

It just started snowing here in Lanarkshire. :D The problem is it started after midnight. We were so close to having a white christmas as well. :(

 

Oh well. I'm not complaining. We got more snow. So I'm happy :D

Starting to thaw in Lanarkshire now.

Heard a rumble this afternoon, and looked out and there was a bigger pile of snow in front of my window, obviously having slid off the roof.

No way was I going to sit at a football match in that weather.

Now if it was the Pats I was going to see, that would be different.

Must have been very slow in moving over the 74 as about 11.30 in Netherton it was chucking it down :D

Someone has posted on the You Tube comments that "...the car crashed into a wall, and they got out cause that hills really steep" - so that could go someways to explaining it.

 

Nice to hear those who made the clip not treating the whole thing as a spectator sport... <_<

Maybe the hill was steep but they were almost run over by their own vehicle. The best move would've been to buckle up, stay in the car and do your best to steer it into something that would stop you. "Jump out and save yourself" is not a good strategy.

Fair enough, they weren't treating it as a spectator sport but wouldn't it have been more community spirited of them to either go outside and warn drivers of the problem or make some kind of sign to put at the side of the road on the approach to the junction. The way they were talking (he says "here you go look") it seems they were just waiting for the show to begin :rolleyes:

 

That car could have careered into a bunch of kids or owt once the driver lost control of it and the driver and passenger were lucky they didn't end up doing a "Brian Harvey" :angry:

If you think cold weather bothers us in New England, look at this: http://wbztv.com/watercooler/polar.bear.pl....2.1400416.html :o

 

Major shrinkage factor.

Thats also a tradition which happens here in Seaton on Boxing Day, did it once never again :lol:

 

(it used to kick off the start of the Boxing day hunt, however the government thought they knew better and banned that tradition, here's hoping the next government overturn this decision <_< )

It's snowing in Lanarkshire again. It just wont stop snowing here. Dont get me wrong. I love the snow, but it's been almost every day for 3 weeks now. It was fun wen it first started, but the novelty factor has gone now. I just want it to end.

About 4 inches deep where I live, which is one of the higher parts of Rotherham. Not looking forward to trying to get in to work for 6am in the morning (first shift back after the hols) :)

 

Our site is at one of the lowest spots in Rotherham so it's all downhill going , then all uphill when I'm trying to get home at 6pm :(

 

At least I only have to negotiate about 50 yards of our side street and then I hit a major arterial dual carriageway, once I'm on that it's all main roads until the final mile of site roads which, hopefully, Corus will have made passable :unsure:

 

Call me an old fogie but I hate snow, it's nowt but a bloody inconvenience :angry:

Snow looses its magic the first time you pick up a shovel or when you have to drive in it.

4 to 6 inch of snow in Barnsley and its still snowing as i speak, all i need is 22 people, 11 in Raiders and 11 in Patriots uniforms then I can perform the legendary "Tuck Rule" game, or maybe get a convict (not so hard to find in Barnsley) a snow brush and perform "Snowplow game". Least I got the rest of week off from College after 1 lesson back (i only got 1 lesson monday) from Christmas :D, so as the song says "let it snow, let it snow, let it snow"

I heard that the UK virtually shuts down for the 12 Days of Christmas; is that true?

It's not far from the truth Dan, and there are some others who don't need much encouragement to shut things down for longer.

There was supposed to be a football game being played in Manchester tomorrow night, between the 2 manchester clubs, City & United, but it has already been postponed

(probably on dubious health & safety grounds because the pavements outside the ground (sidewalk to you) might be a bit slippery.

Personaly I love the statement printed on my Patriots/Falcons ticket receipt "this game will be played irrespective of weather conditions"

Bah a mere dusting of 3 inches in Nottingham....despite the forecasters assuring us "heavy snow" was expected.... :unsure:

 

Back in the day, when the forecasters said "heavy snow" was on the way, you knew it would be "proper" deep & up to at least your window sills............the upstairs ones... :D

 

 

Still, there was just enough for me n mini-Patsman to have sledge ride down the empty road..... :D -empty because the gritters haven't been.... :rolleyes:

Right, a bit icky. But, if we knew the temp would be below 30F and ice and snow and not the 40F and rain as projected by every forecaster here, we would have been prepared, without a doubt.

 

Although the weather is supposed to be cold and clear this Sunday, we going prepared for a blizzard. :D
