The World will end - ITS SNOWING ??

Cant believe the amount of Schools and works I have heard that have closed today because its snowing.

Whats wrong it was only a tiny amount, I can remember many years ago when it was a foot + deep.

Are we going soft?

On a down side - No my works didnt close, on the upsaide I didnt have to finish work as my kids school didnt close.

So did you have a day off.

Fifty years ago we were able to cope because most people worked and went to school within walking distance from home or only a short bus ride away

Re: The World will end - ITS SNOWING ??

Many schools close because the teachers don't live on the doorstep.While it may have seemed not too bad down in the town centre, further out and higher up it has been quite bad to drive. I didn't risk taking my car off the street because there's a downhill bit that I didn't fancy trying to stop on if I had to, and end up going straight out in to Willows Lane in front of somebody else.

The problem is a lot of people have to try and get around at the same time and a couple of bumps create havoc. I know somebody on the X43 bus this morning took 2.5 hours to get to Manchester.

If you don't need to go out there's no point doing so, makes it easier for those who have to

Accrington Academy closed at lunchtime due to the boiler overheating apparently.

Im just glad my daughters school didnt close. It would of been a hassle sorting someone to pick her up and watch her.

Glad to read a letter from her school "However bad the weather, school will never close during the course of a working day".

And cant see why they had to close a secondary school with a few hours left to go because the boiler packed in.

the school would of had to close because all school rooms have to be above a certain temperture and if they are not than health and safety say your not allowed to work in the class room etc
