Heavy Snow Forecast for England.

Mega Snowfall forecast for England on Wednesday night/Thursday morning. Time for the annual Lemmings drive.

Glad I'm not working that day. Watch all the cautious/bad drivers come out.

Its a really annoying time. You have a 4 X 4 but can't go anywhere because everybody else is clogging up the roads.

Might pop out later in the day for a bit of Cross Country Driving. Certainly the RIB isn't coming out to play this week.

Yes, but you do know that we will only get cold rain though don't you? - never believe the weather forecaster when they say that snow is on its way down here.... it rains heavy instead
