See the Scotsman under the headline: “Scotland to stay deep frozen into the new year” at http://thescotsman.scotsman.com/news/Scotland-to-stay-deep-frozen.6645621.jp.
Some areas of Scotland could see as much as half a metre of snow by the weekend – putting further pressure on councils battling to maintain grit supplies.
I have news for Scotland. Grit is not going to do any good. We need to use snow plows and shovels. And since local government probably used the Met Office’s forecast of a “global warmed” winter, it’s likely we will run out of grit before the end of winter since a) bought insufficient quantities, and b) using it inappropriately on deep snow.
