im North East England, and it is pretty wild here. I had to dig out a path through about a metre of snow so that I could get the dogs out. They are loving it, so not a problem when I let them off in the field.
Lots of warnings from the police to stay at home, don't go to work unless you're a snow plough/gritter driver, and asking for help from folk with 4x4s to get vital NHS staff to work.
My son's employers have told him to get into work - I'm glad to say he has ignored them - but that's the mentality of employers, and the reason there are still people driving and having/causing accidents.
