    Not looking good

    Woke up this morning to 4 inch of snow that has fallen overnight, and the forecast is more to come. All flights from Manchester have been cancelled and I am supposed to be leaving for LOS tomorrow morning.


    Not looking good at present, might need one of these

    Its not looking too clever over`t other side o`t Pennines either. All the roads leading over to Manchester have been closed for the last few days, except the M62. Hope it sorts itself out for you Props. The snow is supposed to stop in a few hours, so maybe you`ll get lucky.

    same in North America and North China, maybe it really is the day after tomorrow.
    Now people will come out and start with the 'so much for global warming' but it was a devastatingly hot summer and there aren't any glaciers around here anymore.

    ^ Beautiful but a pain in the arse for you.
    Will they reschedule your flight? Will you have to camp out at the airport for the next few days? How is this handled, I've never been in that situation.

    Sadly, I'm not going anywhere at the moment and I shan't be until I finish my studies

    After that It's party time (drops into deep southern accent) and a high high

    When I do make my move it'll be long before the onset of next winter

    When a few of the wrong leaves can cause chaos to the rail network, think what snow does

    I guess because Manchester does not get a lot of snow they are now equipped. That is just a light dusting for Chicago, Minneapolis, hell so many midwest and east coast cities. You will get out props. They are losing mega bucks every minute it is closed.

    I keep telling you that the frozen wastes of the north are crap. Move to somewhere nice that doesn't have any northerners.
