We've had a sprinkling but it didn't last long.

DS has his birthday next week so I know we had blizzards this time of year in 1991. I was in hospital with a new baby and no visitors as our families aren't local and it wasn't safe to drive too far.

I hope we don't get that much snow this week.

Its really settling here. I need to find my huge plasters as my snow boots give me blisters if I walk too far and its a three mile walk, so will definately need to think ahead.

I bet it stays on the ground for the next few days. Hope not because as Joh says it is a nightmare for everyone getting to work etc.

Been up for an hour, meant to leave around 5ish to take DS training - no way the snow is half way up the wheels of my people carrier. Just been looking at news and weather online and the boys won't be going to school at the moment even if open - they travel an hour on 2 different buses and just heard that London Transport has suspended the bus service, that will also rule me out of going to work, no way am I going to drive and if the buses arn't running no other way to get to work (thats if the school that I work at is open, I bet it is though as the head won't shut it for nothing!!!! we'll see

snookhams
02-02-2009, 01:01 AM
Well its 6.38 and I have just recieved a text message from the boys school to say that it is closed for the day.... I have not woken them as yet they normally leave at 7.15 but as no buses thought that there is no point let them sleep in as long as possible. I am just going to have brekkie and then ring work to see if they are opening the school.

shellbell
02-02-2009, 01:22 AM

Both of my girls schools are closed.Hubby went to work on his push bike+what normally takes him 20mins took him 50mins,but thankfully he arrives safely,which is the main thing.(could'nt get the bus as they are not running,along with most of the country!!).x.

Yes i too can see where he is coming from.I am a stickler for my girls going to school(and would have taken them both today)At 7am on the dot i was ringing both schools to see if they were going to be open.But they said no-as most teachers can't get in because of no public transport here.x.

Yippee, it's thick snow and still snowing. Left home at 7am to walk to the station but turned back as found out the trains into Paddington were severly disrupted and getting home this eve would have been a nightmare. My nephs and niece schools in Windsor are closed for the day and my sisters both work at Eton Wick school and that is closed as well.

So am going to work from home and walk into town later, just to walk in the snow as I love it.

Exactly,i have a friend and she won't even take her boys to school if it's heavy rain.We had torrential rain one day last week+she rang and told me there was no way she was going out in it.I rang her this morning+told her both schools were closed,and woke her up-she said she made her mind up last night she was taking them anyway.
My girls are not happy,they wanted to go to school,i am so glad my girls love school as much as they do+i hope the always will :thumbsup2 .x.

Thanks Mandy....did you notice Baileys collar?

It's ridiculous how this country can't cope with snow. It snowed when I was in New York a few years ago & we got up & out of the hotel about 8.30am & you wouldn't have known that it had snowed 2 feet! The roads & paths were totally clear except Central Park which is how we knew it had been snowing.

It is still snowing really heavy here. I think I will do a Tescos online order! :rotfl2:

My Dalmatian isn't sure about it at all! The whole thing is freaking her out but then she is deaf - I don't know what that's got to do with it but it's my explanation for all her quirky behaviour... As for Suzy Sheepdog - well, she loves it BUT I know from experience that she can't be out for long as lumps of ice form on her long fur and I get terrified she'll freeze... :rolleyes:

My mums school is closed today, just shows how bad it is. The headteacher never closes the school.

My niece's preschool is open still though. My sister got my niece all dressed to play in the snow, when she phoned the school it was open. So off they went.

I don't work Mondays so I have no worries, although I hope its still here tomorrow, so I don't have to go in.

Our dog loves the snow, the problem is that it clumps up on his fur & its impossible to get it off.

Here are a couple pf pictures from my garden:

Schools out and DH can't get to work so we went to the field behind our house to meet up with some friends. The snow was very deep and Poppy (age3) found it really hard and tiring to walk in, but we had fun sledging and the like!

View at the front of our house.

Suzy got into a terrible state last time there was deep snow with frozen snowballs all over her legs and tummy - I ended up hosing her down with warm water in the bath as I was terrified she'd catch pneumonia... :rolleyes: Fortunately, we now have underfloor heating in the conservatory so I turned it up and it melted the snow clumps off her as she lay down... :thumbsup2

Just sent everybody, that managed to get into work this morning, home as I don't want them getting snowed in. The manager didn't make it in so I guess he won't mind.

I walk to work so will be here until 3 when I go and pick the girls up - well that's if the school stays open!

I have just used the hairdryer on my dog:rotfl2: he was fine until I tried it on his head.

I didn't realise how deep it was outside the front of our house. I have just played with the dog & it came up to the top of his legs. He then fell head first into it as he tried to run off from me:rotfl:

I would hate that if I was a child. I have just been listening to more school closures, I don't really know why they bothered opening if they are going to close.

DH finally made it to work - we live in Essex and he works at Heathrow so on the underground it took him the best part of 3 hours = he rang before he left to say he would try to get in and they told him they were short staffed so went with spare clothes etc so if he arrived wet he could change. When he got there he found out that collegues that only live 10 minutes away had not come in!!! and is not very happy :guilty not sure how he is going to get home, did take spare clothes so maybe he will have to spend the night. I will not sleep tonight until he gets home which should be around 11.30 p.m.

On the brighter side just had a text to say the school that I work at is closed tomorrow as well, so another day off!!! I also expect the boys school to be closed as well.

Although its only just starting to get heavy it has been snowing practically all day.

The girls school closed yesterday afternoon as not enough staff had made it in due to the snow. It's closed today so I've had to stay home.

A lot of the snow has melted but what's left is ice and there's lots of black ice around now so very dangerous.

I think we're due sunshine the rest of the day so I'm hoping it all goes by the morning. I LOVE snow but I HATE ice.

DS back to training tonight, refused to take him yesterday morning as was not happy to drive, but had a message from his coach sunday night to say not to allow a little bit of snow stopping the squad training..... he only lives 5 mins from pool - we live over 8 miles away, so will be in for a tongue lashing tonight :angel: Normally he would train tomorrow am will depend on how the weather is and how icy it is along out road.

Well the girls schools were both closed again today(i really don't see why today).There is'nt much hope that they will be open tomorrow either.
Thankfully we hardly had any snow last night,even though it was forceasted to be just as bad as the night before.
Most of it now is pure ice,with a little snow on top,i spent 30mins clearing the front garden/drive,pathway+pavement outside my drive-it was so hard to get the thick ice off.Then spent 10mins clearing the ice of the patio area in the garden.
Me+the girls braved it to pop to the shops as we needed bread,milk etc..we were slipping+sliding everywhere-the girls thought it was hilarious.x.

I am not a happy bunny today.I had been trying since 7am to find out if Chloe was back to school,as the phones have been constantly engaged since Monday as they had taken the phones off the hook,so after 25mins of trying i assumed another day off school.So i left the girls in bed asleep.I noticed about 8-30am-as i got the girls up,that some schol kids were going past-so i rang the school+it was still engaged-i managed to get thru at 8-45am+they told me that school was open.I explained that i would'nt be able to get Chloe in for 9-10am and will get her there asap.Anyway i got her in for 9-50am+they issued her with a LATE MARK-i was absolutley fuming.I explained about the phone situation+explained that i had once again tried ringing this morning+no luck+i was told that the secretary was in at 7am+everyone was phoning,thats why the phones were engaged.I explained that the phones gad been constantly engaged since Monday+thats when they told me that they took the phone of the hook-so i said how was i supposed to know the difference between the phone off the hook+people on the phone this morning.
I am mad because i pride myself in my girls being at school on time(my girls have never had a late mark),and never having a day off unless it is absolutley necessary+now it will go on her report.Am i being touchy?,sorry to rant+rave-i had to let it out.It just annoys me that there's one person in particular+yes she is a friend that refuses to take her children to school if it's raining or she don't feel well+she managed to get her son in on time-argggghghhhhhhhhh.x.

If it were me I'd have a quiet word with the head teacher and explain what happened. I hardly think it's fair to give late marks with the current weather situation.

I'm sure they will make an exception to this - if not insist to be told how many teachers turned in on Monday! ;)

Schools round here ring the local radio station if their closed, to discourage parents phoning it then gets announced repeatedly and also put on their website...prehaps you could ask them if they could think of starting to do that. It does work well and stops all the calls. Also the local council puts school closures on their website too.

I don't think you're being touchy at all Michelle. You would think under the current circumstances they would be understanding and not issue any late marks until everything settles back to normal.

Well, I haven't been able to go into work again today. It is a nightmare here in Wiltshire - apparently the local council has run out of grit so none of the roads were gritted yesterday. As a result my two main routes into work today were absolutely trecherous and I managed to spin my car off the road. After two hours of getting precisely nowhere, I gave up and came home. Work weren't quite so sympathetic today but, given that I've got a 30 mile journey, I think they will have to accept that it's not worth me risking my car - or my life - just to get in.

More snow predicted for tonight but I sincerely hope we don't get any as I can see them taking a dim view if I don't make it again tomorrow.

Thanks guys+gals,i thought some of you may think i was being a little over the top.
I was constantly on the School's own website+nothing had been posted at all.
I was constantly on our local council site,Mon-it said ALL schools were closed-which i knew as i got thru about 7-10am+the secretary said they had made the decision to close as 90% of there teachers can't get in).Tues-it told you to phone individual schools to find out anything(as i said i tried)at 4pm the council updated there website to say ALL schools will be closed for another day-yes i guessed that after phoning for nearly an hour in the morning+constantly hearing the engaged tone,i also kept phoning throughout the day as well.Today-there telling you to ring individual again.
Apart from phoning my girls nursery+school(they go to different ones-but next door to each other)there was no way of knowing anything,i was completley in the dark on knowing when they would be returning to school(i know i am not the only one-everyone would be in the same posistion).

Forgot to say that Emily got into nursery 5 mins earlier than Chloe+when i asked about a late mark for her,they said they were not issuing any as it would'nt be fair.
I did mention this to the secretary of Chloe's school+she just replied with 'are'nt they'.

I am deffinatley going to have a word with the head teacher+explain the situation as i honestly don't think it is fair that Chloe should be given a late mark(also others as well who may have been given them).

Thanks for listening to this whinge-bag.x.

Michelle :hug: I think to give a late mark is out of order esp as due to the snow and icy conditions you have to walk slower to school. It took us 20mins to get to school today when it usually takes 10.

Hope the Headmistress has a sympathetic ear for you and the other parent's Michelle. I don't think the children should have been given a late mark, the school need to make sure they have a better way of communicating in these situations :confused3
Good luck :flower3:

Michelle,
Like yours, My DD's school has been terrible, I totally sympathise with you.
I have relied on text messages from other Mums (most of the time in other year groups) as to whether my DD should go to school or not. The school has a website, which hasn't been updated and an automated switchboard which option 7 is daily update messages, this hasn't once been updated either. We went to school today, and when we got there the Head was talking to the teachers and decided to NOT open the school today! The Heads reason for not updating web an phone was that somebody has to be onsite to do it - rubbish! I think her school were caught completely of guard. It is only due to a few parents that suggested staying to clear paths from fire exits that the school is opening tomorrow. After doing that the head tried to get the parents to clear the car park for the teachers to park in tomorrow! The parent that suggested it stayed the idea said to me that the school's female caretaker wasn't coping, I can well believe it as I'm not impressed with the general upkeep of the school grounds, and apart from one teacher making tea, none of them were helping!
If the teachers had been prepared to have the children in the hall they would have got more parents help. The Head and Teachers didn't seem to be able to adapt the way the school operates for a day of two - they still wanted everything done as it always is.
The head called the council today to come and clear the car park and public walkways to the school - why was this not done yesterday in prep for today?
They made a decision at 3pm today that school would open tomorrow.
My DD needs a Tonsilectomy and we decided to go privately so we could book a half time date as to minimise the time off school, wish I hadn't have bothered now after the attitude I witnessed today.
I've loved having her off, and we have had lots of fun, but her education should come first.

natalielongstaff
02-04-2009, 02:13 PM
but her education should come first.

you are right, our school has opened throughout and i suspect they will again tomorrow however lots of parents didn't send there kids :confused3 and now our head has sent home a letter saying that its up to the parents if they send the kids or not any no sanctions will be applied. thats me taking time off for holidays whenever i want then !

Snowy-girls
02-04-2009, 02:30 PM
Joanne i see where your coming from,and in reading this post+others of yours,you(i believe)have the same view as me when it comes to education.I am a stickler at that,to the point where i was told today to 'lighten up' it was only 2 days school they missed.I can understand school being a no-go on Monday,but not yesterday.
I would'nt be complaining about this late mark if it was MY fault for say not leaving home earlier to get my girls to school because of having to walk on thick ice,but the fact that i never even found out school was open until 8-45am.
I will be saying this on Friday+also how they handled it,or did'nt handle it.There has been no grit laid on either of the playgrounds,car park,or walkways up to the schools entrance.
Chloe told me today that at dinner time they were made to go out in the playground.

I can't believe your Headteachers attitude,i really can't.

I also loved having my chldren home,i really do miss them when Monday comes around-but yes education comes first,snowmen can be made after school.x.

The school should have an updated website, ours is updated at 7.30am

I am so glad that people on here are agreeing with me,i really thought i was making a big issue about this.
As i said in my previous posts,not once was anything on there website+even the councils website was not being updated until school time was over+done with(if they had have been at school)But then that may not have been there fault if they were not getting the info from the school.

Chloe said that she was the only one late in her class+there was about 4 children not in.
Chloe also told me that some of the mums were texting or phoning the other mums(as this is what the secretary asked them to do to spread the word) to tell them that school was open,as this is what her friends told her.Ok fair enough i do keep myself to myself,not rudely or intentionally i do find it very difficult to approach+befriend people BUT 2 of the mums Chloe mentioned have got my phone number.
I am really upset over this,and i know there are worse things going on than my daughter getting a 'late mark' but for someone like me this has really upset me.x.

I am so bored too! I had a million & one things to do this week & haven't left the house once because of this stupid snow!

We are having Roast Pork tonight....I bought a British rolled joint (belly) after watching that programme last week. Let me know what you think of the shoulder is Joh as I want to try that next. :thumbsup2

We got a very light covering last night:sad2: but only about 20 miles away they got about 6" and some of the roads were blocked with 2ft drifts. Oh how I long to get some proper snow.

Claire, we had shoulder on Saturday after watching the programme last week and it was absolutely delicios hence why we are having it again tonight. It does need to be cooked for a long time but it was so worth it - we cooked it for 20 mins initially at 230 C then turned oven down to 180 C and gave it 45 minutes per lb. It took about 4 hours in total but was yummy!

I love belly pork too but prefer the slices done on the BBQ :thumbsup2

Trouble is, it's not very WW friendly so I may have to be extra good for the next few days.

Snowing really hard here as well - only the girls' school has confirmed closure at the moment but I'm certainly not going anywhere for a little while.
