    hey sorry to be babbling on about the snow... but im just wondering if the gritters have been out near any of yous.......

    i live on a main avenue in my area and its quite a busy road no gritter i also live 10 doors away from the very very busy harrogate road that runs from bradford to harrogate and they havent gritted that either or at least not at my end.... a you can imagine this road is like the root to every i have to use to get off of my street no matter which way i go..... and its the main root to leeds and well its the main road running to the motorways plus some roads but majority are gunna have to use this road but no gritter

    is this cause they are still low on salt or wat???? sorry i dont watch the news regular so wouldnt n if its been on there xxx

    You'll find they won't be quite as on the ball in England with gritters as the amount of snow you normally get isn't all that bad.

    Up here griiters tend to appear before the snow does as they are used to the demand and have the provisions.

    You can always go to the big yellow buckets and take some to put on the road where you need it, thats what they are for.

    Hope they get to you soon! x

    Gritters been out on the main road at the bottom of our road but not actually up our road (bit of a hill as well). We do have a yellow box but the school halfway up the road decided to use the WHOLE LOT to do their car park and especially around the headmaster's car.

    They left about half a bucket for everyone else:growlmad:
