Country set to slither to a halt again thanks to a modest coating of the white stuff.

The Germans find this sort of thing hilarious.
Nevermind the huns, Us North of the Border find it funny as f+ck watching England grind to a halt whenever you even see a snow flake!

It's amazing that other countries don't seem to get snow/leaves/water falling anywhere near their railways. That must be it, right? 'cos why else would the rail service here make such a fuss?

I was in Norway last year and the roads are pretty much iced up the whole time. It doesn't stop the drivers screaming along at 60 mph as casual as you like, which I thought pretty cool

Here in Britain it's like Armageddon! The slightest bit of weather and everything goes haywire. "We're all doomed"!

My missus was panicking today about going to the shops to stock up on bread and milk! Silly bint.

We had an exercise called off in Germany. 1976 I think? Think it was something like 30 below and geezers were freezing at the controls of their 432's and it was considered too dangerous. How them Stalingrad veterans laughed!

We are bloody soft here now though. Some of us remember Winter 1963. Every barsteward thing froze and we had snow, snow and more snow. Outside toilets, one coal fire, the only double glazing was in national health glasses. Old army great coats for duvet covers.

Don't suppose many on here remember the great coat? They were great (Hmmm?) but bloody heavy and I hated sewing the buttons on.

Trouble with this country now is that we are just not used to heavy snow any more. That and most councils and companies are sh1te and couldn't organise a p1ss up in a brewery. Nowt new there then?

Maybe because they have compulsory studded winter tyres, consistantly cold weather, eat a diet of fish and saurkraut and are all retards...

My workplace have issued an email deeming that it's a 'contractual obligation' to make every effort to attend the workplace tomorrow.

If this is the standard advice from the majority of employers, and the forecasts are correct, I'll expect all roads to be completely unpassable around 8.00 am.

'ckinell ... saw snow in Limassol (1980's) ... didn't affect trains (as there weren't any) or any other form of transport ... obviously not special enough ;-)

It seems that, under this UK administration, each season brings unforeseen dangers on an annual basis.

1976 was the year, bit more than 30 below, especially with windchill - Soltau-Luneberg - Rocks were dug in and last to be given "endex"
