Winter weather in Nottingham

40 comments


Well when I went to bed last night the snow had gone and the roads were clear. It was very cold -2/3 and set to plunge even lower. So when I threw back the curtains this morning I was very surprised to find ………

It was the first day back at school for Holly and I was determined she was going to get there, but …………

It was to bad to take the car so I decided I would take her Inuit style and rope a pack of dogs to my scooter! Well I could only find three so I rounded up the local cats and put them in front of the dogs. I’ve never gone so fast on my scooter!!!!!!!!!

Take care out there, it’s ’orrible!

PS. No animals were harmed in any way during the making of this blog!!!!!
(We went in the car really!)

Best place for you both, nice and warm indoors. We had to go to T...o's for some essentials and it took half an hour to do the 5 miles there and an hour to get back! It's even deeper now and still snowing hard. :~((

joe sent home from college at 2 said the head wouldnt close but in the end he had no choice, hardly any tutors and kids were fed up no lessons, so will ring in morning to check

5 Jan, 2010

 

My youngest does not go back till Thursday but I am going to ring tommorow just to check as I think the office staff may be in.

5 Jan, 2010

 

Nice blogg Ian,gave us a chuckle. All schools closed around us. Have been watching the kids having a great time snowballing and trying to sledge on too deep snow. We had about 6 inches since yesterday. Still snowing but only lightly.

5 Jan, 2010

 

Thank Uma, the temp. is falling faster than a stone at the minute (-5/6 expected) so I can only imagine what it will be like by the morning!

I would keep him off it's to far to walk San. You don't want him getting stuck! :~((

Mavis, I think you have it worse than us don't you? I've got to get my mum-in-law home to Northumberland on Thursday, what are the main roads like up there?

Hi Homebird, I love watching the kids enjoying themselves in the snow. A group were playing around us and one of them threw a snowball towards another group who were stood under a tree. The second group started jeering because it was obviously going to high, until it hit the tree and all the snow fell off the branches and covered them! :~)))))

5 Jan, 2010

 

no more snow at moment ian but doesnt mean to say it wont start again in night, will see how things are in morning

5 Jan, 2010

 

:0( Snow has made it to the south started half an hour ago and now it's all white may need your dog and cat team down here Ian!! had a burst pipe at teatime :0(( Steve got caught up on M3 on the way home so I've been paddling in about in 3 ins of very cold water Pipe now fixed and cleanup done just hope not to much damage done to utility ( Brick built outbuilding in the garden )Thank goodness it was not in the house!!!!!

5 Jan, 2010

5 Jan, 2010

 

Oh no Sue what a disaster! I hope everything goes all right for your utility!

5 Jan, 2010

 

Yes, we've finally had snow here Ian. The roads are really bad tonight. Lloyd(my youngest) and his mates wer due to be playing in a pub in St Albans tonight but I wasn't happy about him driving there but fortunately the pub cancelled it as the other band couldn't get there!
I've just put a blog up, also, of the snow when I took Paddy for a walk this afternoon.

6 Jan, 2010

 

Crikey, Sue. Just as well it was outside. Watch out thogh, it will be very slippery now with all that water!

6 Jan, 2010

 

Hi Ian digs v2 The roads are pretty bad as I am sure you have seen on the news but if you take care you should be fine.I think some councils are selecting which roads to grit as salt is getting low. Sorry to leave it till tonight to let you know but the lads had to use the computer for school work safe journey Ian.

6 Jan, 2010

 

Thanks Mavis, Mum has decided to stay for a few more days! ;~)))))))))

6 Jan, 2010

 

I think that might be the best idea Ian , I have kept my youngest off school until Monday, even though his school is one of the few that are open.

7 Jan, 2010

 

It might be the safest idea but I still can't understand why she can't use her broomstick? Lol

7 Jan, 2010

 

Now Now! You know you'll need the broomstick to sweep all this snow up!!!!

7 Jan, 2010

 

joe listened to radio this morning as told by college, and it said his was closed again today, then at 3pm he got an email why did you not attend college today joe. "WHAT" im fuming with them, not his fault they cant make up their minds is it, he has never missed a day in almost two years of being there, grrr

7 Jan, 2010

 

Bl...y idiots! Will you be on the phone in the morning then San?

Paul, why can't she do a 'sweep past' (as opposed to a fly past) before she goes?

7 Jan, 2010

 

oh yes i will ian, aparently a freinds daughter went but all her tutors didnt turn in hah! so no lessons for her, so why dont they say one way or another, i bet lots didnt go in because of info on radio

7 Jan, 2010

 

Give 'em hell San!

7 Jan, 2010

 

lol i will ian no worry there, he has 100% attendance which is now ruined, i feel for him as he works hard to get great results to, i will sort it out and make sure this doesnt go down on record.

7 Jan, 2010

 

Some people have nothing better to do than upset others!

7 Jan, 2010

 

very true ian.
