Lol nice rant.
Switched on the tv earlier first thing I heared was a very serious news reader going 'Only drive if you REALLY have to, and if you do go out on the roads then be sure to take warm clothes, food, a shovel and a torch'. Wtf? It's a bit of snow.
Well I'm going to throw snowballs at my nextdoor neighbour now
Quick one taken on my phone then on the webcam
ALL the white in that picture is snow
