I want to see my newborn niece!
Should I take my 2 kids from Uxbridge to Portsmouth on the M25/A3 today?
DH thinks its will be fine...I am nervous!

Well we were supposed to be travelling to Portsmouth today from Bristol but have cancelled. Luckily we sent the children's presents off at the beginning of the month.

Sorry that doesn't help much! Make sure your car is properly kitted out with shovels, blankets etc.

You are entirely unreasonable for having family in Portsmouth (ugh) - but you'll be fine driving. There hasn't been snow since Monday.

My DH is a scummer, we are like Romeo and Juliet too smile.

I'm in Lovedean so more towards petersfield side but know widley it is a nice area.

DH supports SFC and i keep telling him i am going to get her a PFC kit, he wont hear of it but then i wont let him buy a SFC one either. we are at a stalemate grin

Just to add some weight and support to the whole 'oi scummer' debate - nowt wrong with Pompey!

You'll have no probs driving down here, all clear of snow over here (Portchester)

Play up Pompey

Merry Christmas!

Born and bread in Pompey here. Not living there now though.

Still have lots of family around Waterlooville, Horndean & Clanfield.

I would imagine the roads will be fine to be honest A3 is heavily used for commuting (-:

I know you've probably already set off but just to add that I'm in Pompey at the mo and the roads are fine! smile

Lovedean massif ... its all fine around A3 and M25 so come on down!

madonnawhore Wed 22-Dec-10 13:08:37

Lol @pumpers. Having grown up there myself I think you are B entirely U for wanting to go there at all.

FabbyChic Wed 22-Dec-10 14:01:57

We have no snow in Portmouth! The roads are clear here, the A3 should be fine, its the M25 I'd be concerned about.

dustycups Wed 22-Dec-10 15:35:54

FabbyChic Wed 22-Dec-10 15:41:14

It was fine on sunday, even though it was sleety in Southsea.

My DS fell down some stairs yesterday in Waterlooville TKMaxx.

Big up the mean streets of Meonstoke! (About 8 miles from Waterlooville. The arse end of nowhere.)

blondieno1 Wed 22-Dec-10 15:42:13
