Luckily the pipe is outside ...... and now Im on standby for the night shift nhs staff.....

What a day!


Hey Spiderman I made it in today. Not sure about getting home though.

Same 4x4 situation applies here. Plus car sharing where possible. Difficult with the night and weekend shifts though.

I left my 4x4 for the wife. Used my car with winters.

Mrs SD had to use the Evoque to get to work on Friday - no problem in the morning but a difficult drive home. The car performed perfectly in the snow but quite a few roads were blocked with abandoned cars and lorries.

We live on top of a steep hill, I don't think much traffic had driven up the bank but a tractor had cleared a deep drift. This is a bit of footage from the dashcam to show the drive up the bank. https://youtu.be/X6jt2GyGdxw

Cool as you like SD. Thumbs Up

That's always been the big problem, you have a car capable of coping with these conditions, but other cars cause the snarl ups.

Well after being in snow button for two days and one of only two cars that managed to get to the stables and ferried children with sledges up and down to Cadbury Hill (the beast performed beautifully) - now definitely in wade mode - floods everywhere......

This has definitely been a week I’ve been very glad I haven’t got a micra

Birmingham struggling today with the BIG THAW!

All staff at Jaguar Landrover Solihull have been sent home (headlines say evacuates) as Severn Trent Water have told them they cant supply water into the factory....

Same with Cadburys!

This weather is mad, since the big thaw over the weekend it's been glorious this week, right now it's 12 degrees and I'm positively sweating my nuts off sat in a red hot exchange, happen to look at my local papers website to see we have a yellow weather warning for tonight, spidey will be happy when he sees this
