I'm in the NE and we got it quite bad.. the worst thing now is the freezing temperatures, it's not melting and everything is layered with ice.

Had a tiny sprinkle this morning, not enough to even cover the ground. But we're meant to get more this evening and even more over the weekend. Not great when I start my first day at my new job on Monday!

Yea we did get it eventually but a few days after the worst warnings, and same here, everything has frozen solid and walking down the street is a death trap, you have to walk like you just shat your pants lol

Where I work, they start moaning at the 1st signs of snow. People are always saying " I hope we don't get snowed in" and **** like that. Thing is most of them live within minutes of the place so there is no chance of them getting snowed in. Me, I live 3 miles away, and have never been off work for snow. I usually walk to work, and have even walked when snow has been 6inch+.

As Haggis said above " It's only snow".
