Here we are then: the annual, “Do Panic! Don’t drive anywhere, there is at least an inch of snow,” UK weather warning.
Of course, ice and snow is no laughing matter, so it is good that we get some practice in.
Down my way, which is in the middle of nowhere, grit lorries don’t dare stray off the A-roads. However, the local councils do have some yellow grit bins at certain junctions and if you live nearby then it is surely your civic duty to risk life and limb and make a decent job of spreading the salt around. There was only patchy evidence of that this morning as I did the school run.
