Grass verges are coming into their own now - knew there was a use for them somewhere apart from dog toilets and car parking!

 

Well I'm certainly not walking through a dogs toilet!

When it snows in America, they also have transport problems, schools closed, roads closed, power failures, public transport cancelled. Its just nonsense to claim they aren't affected.

 

I have lived there 10 years and 20 years in Sheffield.

 

Love Sheffield for how it blows little things out of proportion, it adds character and there is nothing wrong with it.

I rather watch lots of people make a big deal of a tiny little beast than live in one of these metropolises again where that beast wouldn't even be considered to be a fart.

Last Sunday nearly all buses were down and taxis hard to get.

 

It is because I have experienced both these worlds and actually seen the differences that makes me see the reality of it all when we close most schools and stop mail delivery and other services over relatively little snow and relatively warm weather. And get all panicky over it.

I don't mind it, it is funny and gives Sheffield a character you don't experience in these big cold metropolises that can handle -40 and 50cm snow as a standard procedure.

According to the weather report it's going to warm up considerably in the evening/overnight so hopefully whatever falls for the next few hours will be gone by tomorrow.

 

12 degree temperature difference between now and tomorrow... the weather is mad.

Mike Brewer of Wheeler Dealers says “never buy a car in the rain”, I was planning a drive to Chesterfield to view one today, I reckon that I’ll wait until tomorrow.
