I look forward to this snow all compacting and freezing into ice and Fife council finally getting the gritters out in three weeks time when the worst is over. They've finally got busses back on in Glenrothes but it's just Sunday service and limited routes.

No more snow here in SE London but what is here hasn't really melted, either. The pavements are awful; terribly slippery.

Oh, and the rubbish bins haven't been collected this week and, as it literally impossible for some of my neighbours to cut back a little on their waste, it is now piling up on the floor and being flung around :x .

I forgot to checkout my sainsburys order yesterday so now I won't be getting any new food in until Monday evening. I went out to my local shops this morning for milk, but I'm going to be living on scraps for a few days haha.

Useless isn't a fitting enough word for Fife council.

Looks like it's slowly starting to melt here but the paths are absolutely covered in that nasty kind of ice, so I won't be going far until Monday.

Hopefully I dont get sick of eating Chicken Kievs and Pasta. Cos I've got strawberry float all else.

Most of the street is out digging out the road and their cars. Seems a bit pre-emptive when it's still snowing on and off. I'm going to go out and do it tomorrow and I'll grit the area around us to help out, but it seems daft to do it today.

I'd barely bat an eyelid if those looters were rounded up and shot.*

Crazy thing about this weather is... I still don't need to turn the heating on in my flat.

*I'm exaggerating but still, I strawberry floating hate looters

Panic buying means it’s almost impossible to find bread and other basics in Bristol at the moment. My Mrs has been out this morning and Tesco, Sainsbury’s, Aldi, Lidl and the local shops are are sold out. :lol:

Went outside and was disgusted to see all the roads and paths pretty clear and gritted. Where the strawberry float am I supposed to sledge?

After the temperature being minus something since Monday night, it's now a toasty 7°C today and pretty much any evidence of snow is gone.

Thankfully it's gradually clearing in SE London now. Temperatures are due to hit a balmy 7C tomorrow. Hopefully no more snow and ice 8-) .

Edit: The thread title continues to trigger me. Preferably no full stops; maybe one if you're Peter Crisp; possibly three if you're taking a "question" angle... but definitely not two. Two! My word!

Some of the buses in London today are so strawberry floating dirty because of the snow. The bus arrived and it was literally completely covered in mud. Every single window was like this, couldn't see a thing:

Incredibly, yes. Just the driver's bit had any visibility. I had to use the digital information board to even know where the bus was. Filthier than a pair of incontinence pants.
