#102

#103


#104

#105


#106

If there is a break in the snowfall during the day, I’ll send the Mavic up flying and see if I can get some nice photos of the valley :slight_smile:


#107

Please do. That would be great.


#108

It never snows here. So this was a delight!


#109

We have about 5cm now I’d say. Still snowing.


#110

Well got sent home at 15:00 as the main road that was gritted…started to get covered in snow again. Was a fun ride home (and in my shorts @Buggsy :)) and then went and took kids to the road round the corner that is on a bit of a hill for some sledging action.

It’s been snowing since last night and has not stopped. It’s getting heavier as I type this now.

I’ll see if I can upload my vid of my ride home

Wind has blow my gates open and moved the wooden pillar holding them. Spent an hour with my day screwing the gates shut and tying down the pillar. Nice new job now to secure it better when the weather turns


#112

Sent the drone up quickly, just a few minutes before the gales started blowing!

Editing the photos a bit too much to make them a bit brighter, hence the noise.


#113

I got shouted at an told to f off home after being informed its -11 due to the wind and am a bellend for wearing shorts and ankle socks to say I was offended would of been a vast over statement as the pain of my Bollocks shooting up into my ribs to escape the cold rendered me mute to all external issues


#114

This is from yesterday. Excuse the rambling…


#115

Wow super snowy.

I completely pussied out driving anywhere over the last few days. 4WD counts for squat with 255 section summer tires. #sidewaysthroughleatherheadonewaysystem


#116

I was rambling to keep myself calm, since I’ve never really driven in conditions like this. They may be hefty enough tyres, but they’re still summer tyres :smiley:

L200 took it like a champ :blush:

So…got told last night that my department boss would txt me in the morning once he knew from the director s if we were open today.

Got txt saying we were open. OK. Got shorts on, got bike out and preceded to ride to work. Thought I should go back routes as freezing rain has put about a 10mil layer of ice on top of the lovely powder. Bad idea as some places were a sheet of ice. Mountain bike going sideways is not as much fun as a car going sideways :slight_smile:

So…got to work…4 people in including me. Find out that our delivery company are not doing any collection s today. My manager phones up directors and says hardly any one has made it in due to the ice and snow.

Get told to go home.

Decide to go main road home as safer

Snow day update.

Got kids ready to go to Morrison’s for breakfast/lunch. Just about to walk out the door and phone rings. Not sure of number so answer it.

One of the directors asking if I could go back to work as a lorry with 17 pallets of Asus motherboards and GPUs has arrived and needed uploading. FFS. The curse of living close to work. Also…with all the ice couldn’t get the forklift to take the pallets off…so all 17 were handballed off by 6 of us. Altho boss did pay for burger and a pint after :confused:
