Perhaps we should ask our-self if our journey is really necessary. Is it worth all the heartache and risk? I doubt it very much. Even the aggravation of just a minor shunt is bother that we can do without. And don`t say that you have to get in to work, because there are very few people who really have to get in to work. Life is too short, just go back to bed and try to keep warm.
Cymro please get real. no work = no wages and in our case even one day off for my wife leaves us really struggling. She had to have an unpaid day last month to take me to hospital. Result bouced DD at end of month.

Few companies will pay wages for staff who don't turn in because of the snow. We have to take it as a days holiday or we don't get paid, and at this time of year almost everyone has taken their year's holiday.
I'm lucky, I only live three miles or so from work, so I can walk in, some people in my office have a 50 mile each way commute...
These countries that are used to having more snow than us, also throw more money at the problem. If we had the regular amount of snow that they had we would do likewise. But to spend out millions of pounds on expensive snow shifting machinery, that will stand idle for 50 weeks of the year is just not sensible or feasible.
Didn't we go through all this discussion last year?
