Chuck snowballs at them and they'll fall off - if/when you hit them.

Just leave them hanging and be aware of them. The chances of them dropping is slim - most icicles slowly melt and drip away. The chances of them dropping and someone being under them is less then 1 in a million and even then they won't actually hurt a lot.

It is. The Dutch are more prepared than the Brits as well. I was rather astounded to find out that Sheffield had less gritting and plowing capability than my old (rural) council with 20,000 people in it. All comes down to cost/return analysis.

Settling down a good bit here in Dronfield main roads not bad at all and most main side roads are ok by the looks of it . Bin men got round ok , postman never stopped . All in all NE Derbyshire lads done a good job . Local town council not even turned in.

Think there'll be any snow left for sledging tomorrow morning? I was thinking the field on fox lane at basegreen or the park at woodhouse mill?

At the current rate of thaw I'd be surprised. Although allegedly there is some more on the way overnight.
