    it is proper snowing here. was “interesting” riding home from work this evening, although I am impressed with the Schwalbe Marathon Plus tyres which handle really well in dodgy weather.. not only this but there are random sugar beet in the road in some parts of my journey which create a extra hazard..might be working from home tomorrow (I hope the electric and telecoms services hold up though!)

    Still no let up. Be interesting to see how deep it’ll be in the morning!

    yep snowing again here in ipswich (about 15 miles West of where Josh is).
    -0.3 Celsius outside.

    part of the Telephone Exchange in the village I work in crashed this morning, as well as half the landlines just stopping working it also knocked out O2 and T-mobile as all the circuits to the cell sites go via BT anyway (something many people do not realise!)

    to be fair on Openreach it was fixed with half an hour and broadband stayed up all the time (which means that at least I can route the calls via VOIP to the other site or even my VOIP telephone exchange under the stairwell in my house)… I think it just got overloaded as everyone is trying to use their phones at the same time to check their friends/family are safe..

    been charging up the netbook and a spare mobile in case the leccy or broadband disappears here…..

    looks like I am going to miss the Transition Towns party as the roads are way too treacherous to cycle on now, I’m gutted as I’ve been trying to meet up with the local group for months and always work or something else gets in the way….:cry:

    seen a couple cars from ipswich down these ends who i know, snow looks a lot deeper on the top of their cars.. pretty deep up there? bout 5 inches i would say?
    bout 3 inches this morning and a bit ice-snowy (as we found out when we had a mass snow ball fight) i think its gunna b deeper tomorrow here..

    not here in Ipswich / Mid Suffolk – they’ve run out of grit/salt in some areas and to get across town on a bike means going into all the side roads (unless you want to take chances with ending up on the junction to the main A12/A14 approach roads) – 4 lanes of traffic plus various potholes also this sort of weather often brings out the worst in drivers for some reason…

    GL – apparently the snow polow & gritter also ran into problems on the a14 so it didnt get done, & it was closed? my mum had a proper hard time gettin to work – apparently the fast lane was covered in snow, and the lane that wasnt, hadnt been gritted – nearly got plowed by a lorry at a roundabout when the brakes didnt work!

    the A12/A14 was backed up like anything and people stranded in cars at the Copdock end, 12 cm of snow at Wattisham. traffic is still proceeding very slowly across the Orwell Bridge (I can see this in the distance from my bedroom window).
