Your winter fuel allowance that I paid for will have covered that. :grrr:

As it stands I can’t get home, the snow has blocked both routes back to guisborough. I’m not due to finish for four hours so I hope it clears :wtf:

Best wishes on getting home - remember Jack Kerouac's paean to his bus driver in the blizzardy wilds of North Dakota who found a clear patch of road and gunned the engine and hit the snowdrift head on and won through to the other side.
We're to get 3 inches of wet snow here today with temperatures at freezing. It's been above
freezing the past two nights so most of the snow will melt on contact. I hope.

Hope you're able to get home safely. :)

Still holed up in Whitby but Moodyson said he will pick me up later if need be as he has snow tyres on his car and should get through. I can’t believe it’s that bad, I got to Scarborough twice with no problems. :shrug:

Then again it can change in minutes round here :faceslap2:

a road can go from passable to dangerous very quickly and it only takes a few inches of the right kind of snow to make driving impossible. For what it's worth, I always used studded snow tyres which work well on both snow and ice. On glaze, regular tyres are a little better than snow tires because there's more rubber on the road surface. Studs are good for most icy conditions and tyre chains are the best.

I drive Moodyson’s car with snow tyres last week in some poor conditions and I was very impressed. :)

If you get 3 - 6 inches of snow, snow tyres really do work. I just had the studs added for extra traction and for ice.

Nature is usually defined in establishment dictionaries as things and events independent of humanity: plants; animals; earth systems like the carbon cycle; the metabolism of the oceans; the nitrogen cycle; the earth's climate system and its subset - the weather. I think the photo of the snowy landscape is very pretty and it's nice to see it here where it is appropriate. :)

You stupid cunt, you're so thick one could almost think you were Routemaster :wanker: in disguise!!! :grrr: :radged:

Which of those pictures doesn't feature nature in 90-99% of the image?

Was winter man-made or natural?

Were you always such a cunt?

Your Googling is exemplary, but of irrelevance to my point. I have no interest in subsets.

We had some snow pellets fall last evening for about 30 minutes. It's also called corn snow or graupel and looks like fat rounded snow flakes. It is not hail or sleet but a different form. It was not rare in the mountains but I had never seen it before here at only 900 feet elevation.

Storm Christoph: Flood warnings in parts of England

The Environment Agency has warned of a "volatile situation" as heavy rain combines with melting snow, while police in South Yorkshire and Greater Manchester declared major incidents.

An amber rain warning is in place for Yorkshire, the North West, East Midlands and the east of England.

A yellow rain warning was issued for the rest of the country.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-55715806

What is "amber rain"? :wtf:

Yellow rain is a new one for me too - most people would confuse that with piss. :shrug:
