Put it this way - if that snow arrives around 5am as described on metcheck.com,
then forget the morning rush-hour!

Then in the afternoon - The Cheshire Gap Snow Streamer will possibly arrive over Kent bringing more white stuff.

Worse case scenario - 6 inches of snow by end of the day, assisted by winds of 20mph (enough to drift it about).

Lovely.

Well, it's 2.30am right now, and the snow's really coming down. It's almost silent out there apart from the noise of the snow falling

Well the little bit of snow that fell here now looks more like frost on the ground..... here's hoping the other snow turns up later today.

Didn't know you could be a postman for just a week.
Can I be a train driver next week?

Might only have been a little snow, Fleet Fanatic, but caused chaos again, with 4 failed trains I believe between Rochester and Swanley. The other option was to go North Kent Line and that had the fun of the bus service between Strood and Higham.

Incidentally, you mentioned "8 hours off" earlier - isnt your job like being off 24 hours a day ?? <img src="/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" />

You can if you get sacked!!

It's my new job, mate. Just finished my training period (training = "push wrong letter through door and leg it") and have been let loose in Singlewell mis-delivering mail and scaring dogs!
