Weather warnings and driving....

After a sudden overnight change in weather conditions, motoring organisations have warned that every motorist in Britain is about to die in a massive, horrible accident.

‘Oh my God, stop your cars! Stop your cars now before everyone is killed!’ said Panny King, wildly flailing spokesman for the RAC. ‘Just coast gently to a halt, get out and walk home before you die!’ he added, sobbing slightly.

Mr King’s thoughts were echoed by Pat Ronising of the AA; ‘The icy claws of certain doom are coming!’ he shrieked. ‘Sell your car! Sell it now before it’s too late!’

The British Institute of Motoringists was even more explicit in its weather-based advice; ‘Do not go near your car unless you want to die!’ yelped spokesman Huw Joverreaction. ‘Even looking at a car in a cold snap could kill you! Go home and hide under a table and don’t think about cars or you WILL DIE! Arrrrrgh! Arrrrrrgh! Arrrrrrrrrrrrrrrgh!’

Another light flurry of snow is expected in the next 48 hours.

The pressure group Brake have emphasised that, if temperatures plummet and there is 6 feet of snow, no one should exceed speed limits. Remember the braking distance at 30mph is two and a half miles!!!!!!!!

No-one cares about us poor pedestrians - we can slide all over the pavement and get no warning :-P

This mornng I got to the bus stop by walking on the not very slippery (in comparison to the pavement) road, only to find I couldn't walk along the pavement to get on the bus :-(

An 82 year old gent helped me :-0

International Rescue announce that the retractable lake which covers the launch Silo of Thunderbird 1 has frozen over, preventing any launches in the foreseeable future.

I keep getting the dreaded error message and cannot get into another screen. Can someone please dial 999 for me.!!!!!!

See ! Andy was correct in his OP we have come to a standstill.
The motoring organisations predictions were fairly accurate.

Just as well I have an emergency kit in the car ,I think I'll use the micro thermal sleeping bag,and the blanket ,put my head down and see what tomorrow brings.
