Snow (well someone had to mention it)

Anyone badly effected?

South Birmingham here, many side roads impassable and main roads now starting to gridlock.

What I find most stupid is that although many schools were closed, quite a few opened and in the last hour announced closures and requested parents to collect their kids. With most local schools on side roads I expect mayhem. It was very clear from warnings yesterday that our area would gradually deteriorate during the day so why allow schools to open, take in kids and then an hour later declare closure?

It's good that we should get a visual reminder of just what Global Warming means

School closures are often due to the fact that the staff cannot get there to look after the children. Many of the staff commute some distance nowadays. Those who remember the "good old days" probably had teachers that also walked to to school from a relatively short distance.
