Please, no snow! Loathe the stuff. Turns to ice and is very dangerous

Believe it when I see it, didn't they say that last winter and we got a few snow flurries but nothing to write home about. Already bought a sledge just in case though as they will be like gold dust in the shops if it actually does snow.

There. That should do it.

I can cope with wind and rain.

I moan, but I cope.

Dear Snow

I am 21 weeks pregnant and the bump induced waddle is definitely gaining momentum - I do not want to have to waddle and ensure non-slipping/tripping/breaking one's arse on my way to/from work and school.

So, snow, stay away until DD finishes school on the 21st December. You can come as much as you want after that but be gone completely by say, the 29th Dec.

Thank you in advance.

BrianCox I bought my grandma a pair of these a couple of years ago. She says they are excellent.

NotAQueef Tue 27-Nov-12 16:20:20

They are excellent ,I have some very similar and I'm only 30 blush

BrianCoxIsEatingBrains Tue 27-Nov-12 16:22:31

ooo yes, thank you for the link - I think I have seen them on sale recently.

I suppose the only time you can get away with such practical foot-accessories is when you are either elderly or pregnant, I'll be flicking through my next Betterware catalogue with renewed vigour grin

I have some grips on my wellies. They are an absolute limb saver.

Feel like a bit of an arse when I clip clop round Tesco's, but I have the last laugh in the icy car park.

ahem, sooooo snow shovels eh?

What's elderly about proper footwear for ice and snow? We have kitted out the whole family with Yaktrax, which are the best snow grips IMO, I would not walk in snow without them.

Yay for snow!!!

It's a most excellent frozen rain product. I want it to last for weeks.

I want snow, we get stuck in our house as we're on a huge hillside, but snow rocks. Ice can fuck off though. I have grips for my shoes, makes getting DS to school safer- we all have a pair. I DO need snow chains for the pram next...

Yarg Tue 27-Nov-12 16:44:53

Another vote for snow. Now, please, so that I can start the holidays early and preferably not go back to work till Easter

Molepomandmistletoe Tue 27-Nov-12 17:14:40

I want snow, I'm sick of rain and everyone else having snow...we haven't even had a decent frost, never mind the glorious white stuff.

ilovesooty Tue 27-Nov-12 17:24:53

I don't want any snow at all. I have to drive as part of my conditions of employment.

GrumpyCynicalBastard Tue 27-Nov-12 17:28:17

If you all want to know when it is definitely going to snow - I mean, definitely, no shadow of a doubt, really going to snow - this this is when it will be. 19th December, 5am drive to Heathrow to pick up son's friend from a flight from the US. That is when it will snow. No need to thank me - just get yourselves ready!

BikeRunSki Tue 27-Nov-12 17:28:55

Snow please, rather than more rain.
Snow melt has far lower impact on flood potential than rain.

NotTodayThankYou Tue 27-Nov-12 17:43:37

I fucking hate snow.

Dear Snow,

You can arrive on Christmas Eve and you are welcome to stay until the end of Boxing Day.

Then you can fuck off until next Christmas.

from Me

bondigidum Tue 27-Nov-12 17:47:38

Oh I loooveee snow. Please snow. I'm apparently a 'freak' though, I love cold weather-the colder the better. I'd happily move to somewhere like Alaska grin

DiamondDoris Tue 27-Nov-12 17:55:53

I hate snow. 2 years ago I was toying with the idea of emigrating. It's not snow that I hate so much as ice. Anyway, I bought a pair of Yaktrax 2 years ago and I wouldn't walk on ice without them. I am neither elderly nor pregnant and don't see any reason why I should fall flat on my arse. As an extra precaution I wear a padded jacket and back pack to break my fall. I am seriously phobic about ice. The snow is usually pointless in the south east anyway, it's not like you can ski on it.

forevergreek Tue 27-Nov-12 17:57:49

I now hate snow. I'm now living walking distance of work so if it snows unless it's metres high I really have no excuse not to go in

DiamondDoris Tue 27-Nov-12 17:59:25

By the way Twitter's UK snow is a great website for knowing where the snow is and how it's moving. It's updated every 5 minutes or so. At the moment it appears there is now snow anywhere. For snow-phobes it's a useful tool.

sannaville Tue 27-Nov-12 19:00:49

No snow or ice til I've done my driving test in December plzzz
