Light dusting this morning, but it is snowing again in sunny Welwyn Garden City. It's quite heavy, but wet snow and not settling on footpaths........................yet.

Started off snowing again with a light dusting about half an hour ago and is gradually getting heavier.

Time to batten down the hatches and get a good film on :D

Same here - no wind and beautifully sunny but boy is it cold. All the trees and shrubs have that wonderful hoar frost on the branches making a beautiful spectacle.

Sounds as if there 'could be' some serious snow 'coming in from the South West' tonight/tomorrow, also affecting London and the South East. ''Southern' and 'South West Trains' are preparing a Special Timetable (ie; 'Cancellations') together with 'First Great Western'. Keep warm!!

I don't feel bad for laughing at this because if you ignore the warning signs then you deserve what you get.

Makes me wonder what's going on with that one spot though, I hope someone put something on it to make it less slippery or something.

The cones concentrate the foot fall in to a smaller place and add to the slippery surface!

Had to admire the girl who took the trouble to arrange the bollard ( and the signs on them ) and help tp pick up the faller but if they can put bollards down why can't they grit it as well ?

That's what I was thinking, I can't understand it, and it says this person who filmed it was there for HOURS!! that's awful IMO. There's probably some law that says you can't or something.

I still laughed though ;) =)) .

Helen

If the good natured people cleared the snow/ice and then someone fell over would the original person be liable for any injury?

It is awful isn't it, they should have used a tripod and a remote control! ;)

Now starting to settle on the bits that were cleared with salt and grit!

The journey home could be interesting!

Is your car a heavy one Dave ,my new one ( Nissan Qashqai ) isn't, although it has bigger wheels and an increased height ,is ( or seems ) lighter than my old Primera which was a lump but I never had problems in snow/ice with it cos of the weight over the front wheels,haven't tried this one in inclement weather yet ,but it does go quick compared to the Primera !
