Obligatory snow thread

Recommended Posts

thank fuck it's all gone... the town grinds to a halt if it starts snowing - it's like everyone suddenly forgets how to drive. The ice this morning was bad enough - nearly careering into the car in front (which was already careering onto the opposite side of the road) didn't give me the best start to the day...

and as for the roadworks on Wellington Road. Holy cunting fucking bastard hell - who the fuck is responsible for the sheer fucking idiocy and disruption this has caused?

I love how folk in Aberdeen shit themselves everytime a tiny bit of snow falls.

That's because Aberdeen's roads are the worst!

I shit myself because I have to walk past my old school everyday with the risk of being pelted by snowball armed thugs.

As once vocalised by Jake from Spike Pile Driver....

Hardly. Country roads are a lot worse than town. There's never that much snow in Aberdeen and the whole city environment makes sure it disappears fairly quickly...

Maybe in the heart of the city centre but as soon as you get on to main roads intersecting dual carriageways then the road conditions deteriorate.

North Anderson drive Feb 2006, an articulated lorry couldn't get any traction trying to turn on to Hill of Rubislaw. The airport bus faired no better.

It's just the same old story of the city and shire councils not deploying the gritters and ploughs in the advent of snow. The fact that a majority of drivers have the same tyres on all year round and are so shit-scared to be driving in snow adds to the traffic crawling at a snail's pace. Invest in some winter radials. Better grip in shitty conditions, but still no contest for black-ice and that sugar slush shit.

Isn't that due to roadworks down there? Took my folks half an hour to get through bridge of dee at the weekend as someone had the bright idea to try and fit 4 lanes into 1 with no traffic lights controlling the flow.
