And so with the FIRST dusting of SNOW the country will GRIND to a HALT!

How come other countries can cope with SNOW?

I sure as hell ain't riding my bike, no grit on the roads here and it's ice under the snow. Normally I ride on the snow, it's not a huge problem but ice... no ta.

So many road closures and accidents in MK already, I guess most people think it's just snow, but it's that layer of sheet ice underneath thats a bastard!

We can't cope with snow but the local councils are run by morons. Theres a HUGE amount of salt in MK, the snow has been forecast for over a week yet they don't go out and grit the roads!! Bloody idiots.
