Left the house at 6.30 this morning for work, woulda been nice to know the roads hadn't been gritted. Arrived at 6.55 with no probs but as i went to turn into the car park the civic decided it wasn't going to obey the front wheels and went straight on into a pole just off the kerb. Damn black ice smack

frown

Drive VERY carefully people.

Pics later.

Left for work at 7am, got into work 10am, a proper nightmare.
People who cannot drive in snowy conditions should be crushed by a tank.

Was out at 7am this morning and ended up in a car park that was covered in snow and spent a bit sliding all over the place, so much fun.

Freaky coming home yesterday, it was pelting it down on the M53 and everything was white, all you could see was snow flakes and it felt like the car wasn't moving.

Well Peeps, the snows here once again happy

You know the script by now :

Clear your windows.
Drive with your lights on.
Reduce your speed.
Allow more braking distances.
Accelerate hard out of corners and get that Baby doing the sideways thing.... omg
