Sounds like Surrey's closed. M25 closed J/tions 8 to 10, A23 closed, A22 closed, M23 closed

Met Office don't exactly help, at 0438hr's they said, "There is a Moderate Risk of an Extreme weather event affecting parts of southeast England, including parts of London during Monday."

It was already 3" deep

Looks like there's more on the way ...

Quote
Wednesday February 4 - Freezing conditions in most of the country overnight leading to sunshine in central and southern England with a chance of wintry showers turning to snow inland along the south coast. Possible rain, sleet, snow and strong winds over the south west, south Wales, northern Scotland and Northern Ireland. Maximum temperature 41F (5C), minimum temperature 27F (-3C).

Thursday February 5 - Met Office severe or extreme weather advisories in place for most of England. Risk of up to eight inches (20cm) of snow in Wales and southern and central England, with drifting possible as northeasterly winds strengthen. Maximum temperature 45F (7C) in the south west and minimum 25F (-4C) along the Scottish border.

Friday February 6 - Met Office warning of severe or extreme weather including up to 10 inches (25cm) of snow across parts of central and south east England. More strong north and northeasterly winds could cause snow drifts. Sunshine and showers in areas of central and south west England. Maximum temperature 41F (5C), minimum temperature 23F (-5C).

Saturday February 7 - Cold and bright in most of the country, with strong northerly winds near the coast and in Scotland. Rain is predicted for the south west, Northern Ireland and south Wales. Maximum temperature 43F (6C), minimum night time temperature 23F (-5C).

Sunday February 8 - Continuing cold with widespread frosts, and the chance of wintry showers in the north and longer spells of rain, sleet and snow over hills in the south. Windy at times with risk of gales in western areas and a continued risk of overnight frosts and icy surfaces.

I like the way the Torygraph persists in putting Fahrenheit temperatures first then a concessionary Celsius  lol:

Phones can be diverted but when my last employer tried that it always rang when I was on the bog.

As for the tea making ~ I never suffered from a shortage of tea when working at home. lol:

The biggest (serious for a moment) problem was (and I suspect still is) that most employers (managers) are control freaks who cannot stand the thought that you are out of their sight and thus out of their control.
Despite a senior rank and more service than most whenever I was out of the office my MD would find "reasons" to call me to find out "How the figures look today" or "Who is it you are meeting today" or "You looked a bit down last night in the pub ~ everything OK?" Pure control freakery!
Now remember that my job was as a sales manager thus my task was to go out and seek clients, talk to them, assess their needs, design and present costed solutions for those needs at a profit to my employer so it was annoying to say the least to be pursued around the country by this maniac who wanted to know where I was every minute of the day.
In the end, whenever he was out of the office and I or one of my colleagues was in we took to ringing him asking the most inane questions about company policy and the like. He never did get the message and in fact our scheme backfired as he became even more convinced of his own indispensibility. Eventually the board got shot of him and we got a better MD who understood that if left alone we worked better and produced results ~ after all no salesman is of any more value than the profit on his last sale.

Then self employment is for you!  ;D

Many of us do it you know ~ and it is most satisfying to be able to work when you want, how you want, doing what you like. Tho' technically retired and in receipt of pension etc I do voluntary work (mainly fund raising for charities), write a bit, edit the community magazine, play on here, the odd bit of consultancy (mainly writing reports and stuff like that these days) but I can be choosey when and how I do it all.
No pay of course ~ just expenses   ;)

Friend of mine (lives across the road) chooses to work "California Hours" as much of his dialogue with clients is transatlantic so at 3am his office (back bedroom) lights are blazing and all his emails to me are timed in the wee small hours. At about 6am he goes for a walk, has something to eat and falls into bed, rising mid afternoon to do the housework (he has a disabled wife) and watch some TV. He starts work at about 11pm. Sometimes he works like blazes for a straight 24 or even 36 hours and then takes a few days off. He is in software design.

It's not too bad here at the moment. Drop down the mountain and no snow at all although the car's external thermometer indicates -1. Icy on the upper slopes though but I don't think we have seen the last of the snow just yet. Lots of snowdrops where the snow has melted and our daffs are bravely stetching about four inches above the soil.

Mrs TG went to work this morning in the snow. I waved her off as she toddled off to the the bus stop in her new pink striped wllies ( noooo:). Her 20 min bus trip took an hour and a half.

She just rang me to say that all the buses here have been cancelled.  point:

She should get a lift back. If not those wellies might be the best purchase she has made this year.

It's getting better here  ;D Tonight, freezing fog to begin with. Then - apparently - about 3am, more snow. When I eventually managed to get my car out of the pub car park (it's been there since Sunday night) today, I drove it home and it is now nicely nestled by the house. Walking up to the pub, the snow/ice had that "squidgy" feeling you get as a thaw starts to set in.

After getting the car home, I returned to the pub about 3.30pm and already, the squidgy snow/ice was starting to re-freeze. Walking back from the pub at 6pm (ish) it was really crunchy. The freezing fog is settling and freezing on impact, lots of it on the snow turned ivory compacted by the few cars that make it through the side roads. So we now might have fresh snow on top of sheet ice on top of compacted frozen snow. All pavements in the area are nothing short of lethal as they are - a fresh fall of snow may actually help to gain purchase on these, but the roads, but 5am tomorrow are likely to be pretty iffy.

And the Council is out of grit/salt.

Luckily, I managed to get the shopping done this morning (in Mrs TMR (to be))'s car so we won't starve. And we have lots of red wine. We may yet survive this  lol:

I woke up to another 3-4" of snow 0500 today. The frst part of my journey normally takes 3 minutes. This morning it took 25 minutes. I got stuck twice, 3 x HGV's stuck in the first 1.5 miles, Police were closing the road as I reached town, not the best start to the day. Right now, it's pissing down, but at just after midnight it's due to turn to snow. We have 2 to 4" forecast with 6 to 8" expected "locally" wherever that is

"But, but, but I haven't received the account from you yet, because of the postal delays caused by the snow"

"Then madam, may I suggest that you sign this Direct Debit mandate under which we will take from your account the minimum payment every month and that way you will NEVER make a late payment ~ which I would remind you is going to cost you a LATE PAYMENT FEE! ~ You are of course at liberty to pay additional payments at anytime"

I'd say that 95% of the rock salt supplies in this country is kept under cover in salt barns. For the other 5%, it's outdoors but covered with plastic sheeting to keep it dry. So ITV found what must be the only salt heap in the country that was out in the open and uncovered... 2,000 tonnes of it, open to the elements, being diluted everytime it rained etc  Banghead  As the salt is diluted it leaves are pockets in the pile, and rabbits also create voids, making the pile unstable, thats why there are signs stating do not walk/climb on the pile  Banghead  Banghead . So there he was clambering over the salt pile, talking to the camera about this "grit" throughout. Boy, did he piss me off  cussing:  cussing:  cussing:

How do they weigh snow.  At what point does a light weight flake become a heavy weight flake and who measures it.  For it to become 'heavy snow' how much does it have to weigh.  Has it just become 'heavy snow' since Christmas, will a bit of abstinence and some exercise bring it back to 'light snow' does it get harder to become 'light snow' the older it becomes?
