Hey, that's a nice snow shot!
We get snow sometimes, usually over about 600 metres, and that always means closed mountain roads. Trouble is, where people are not accustomed to snow/ice on the roads, they don't realise just how out of control it can make your vehicle become. Its just the same with rain: if it comes after a long summer drought, the oil and road grease that suddenly gets wet is lethal, and the tailgaters are something to wonder at - if you aren't on the same bit of road.
But, rain, hail, snow or ice, nothing is as frightening as the cyclists-in-lycra: they have no idea at all about white lines, roundabouts and borders. I am sure they are all on drugs from the moment they board their flights out here. Pity we can't send them all to Cyprus instead.
