    Question snow, snow, snow, snow

    The forecasts from the current charts are looking for a significant snow event from Thursday 8th February 2007 onwards. Light flurries and wintry showers expected beforehand, but for the Midlands and the East, Thursday is the big day.

    Ye the wind, I got sent to Burnley but ad to abort, dump it at trafford park TNT depot and try to get back, that took half hour,there were a few trees blown over around trafford park, I got stuck on the m56 at lym trying to avoid the A56, that was for 3 hours, then I got stuck on the M6 at various locations and at tamworth just before the end of the bypass because of TNT(9o'clock by this time). non of their staff could get in, the trucks started to turn up and they had no where to unload them. The yard filled up, Kingsbury road filled up and it blocked the M42 roundabout gridlocking it.It took me two hours to get from the wilnecote turn to Morrisons to the m42. The situation was made worse by TNT trucks trying to turn right being in the kaft hand lane. One I was past the trucks on the island which i did by overtaking on the right and pushing through the A5 was clear.
    All in all there was very little that should have caused much disruption at all let alone all that, but thats this country isn't it, the wind blows and everything stops.
    It did blow a tree over on to the A5 bypass, one of the tall thin ones by the school. They must have got it cleared pretty quick though because by the evening it had been cut to the edge of the road.

    I will indeed take my camera. I am really only going there for company related meetings though so, unless we are snowed in will be back tomorrow night.

    I have a piccy somewhere that I took at Crewe station one evening when it was snowing. Was onboard and looking through the glass panel in the door.
    Cool
