    I couldn't get out of where I live yesterday, so pretty much spent the whole day just sat around the house, bored. I live in Devon, so it wasn't exciting snow, its just a bloody sheet of ICE on the road (and all the grit bins are empty - great) My neighbour tried to escape this morning, he didn't get very far...

    I've not ventured out of the house in my car either, it's not worth the risk. Fortunatley I'm still able to walk to the pub where I've spent most of the past week.

    That street of yours look like a feckin ICE rink.

    I had a driving lesson yesturday, pulled in to my works carpark to end the lesson and had 3 of my collegues shouting at me that it was icy. I was like whoa ok chill out! ... Untill I tried to turn into a parking space and just slid diagonally haha

    Turns out my manager and 2 other sets of customers had crashed their cars earlier on trying to enter the carpark :Angry:

    Salt was quickly deployed and it ICE buggered off thank god!

    The roads here are awful, they are literally just ICE. I didn't run the risk yesterday of going to work, my neighbour thought he'd give it a go this morning, fail. To top it off, all the grit has gone, so theres no chance of getting anywhere!

    Thats just a lack of ambition.

    I bet you could do it if you really tried.

    I'd never experienced black ICE before until yesterday! It was mad, turning from a dry road, onto a road where I could get zero traction! I thought I'd snapped my driveshafts or something, as I was just going nowhere all of a sudden, lol! I had to slid into the bank at the side of the road to stop! Funnily enough there was a car on it's roof in the middle of the road about 100m down - crazy shit! 8 accidents I counted that day!
