    I don't hate the winter or cold temeratures, just the snow on the roads. Normally I need approximately 30-40 minutes from home to work, but as soon as 2 snowflakes are falling everyone on the road seems to go "WHAAAAAA!!!! ICEAGE IS COMIN, I HAVE TO DRIVE SLOWER THAN A SNAIL!" WTF? SO, now I need about an hour for the same distance. I hate it...
    That's what its like over here in the UK. We never got any snow in the top end of Wales but hell, everyone had to stay home even tho we had to get into work .

    Let's see. The forecast for tonight through tomorrow here is for 1" to 7" of snow. So maybe Miami will warm up now.

    Yeah I get that too Skel, here it's more like the slow motion "Ohhhhh shiiiiiiiii...." when snow starts falling as everyone dashes to their car to raid the petrol stations and the super markets. "Go into work? Are you mad, man?! There's at least 3cm of snow out there!".
    Even our "super trains" that milk the commuter for mega pennies hit a bit of slush and you can hear the driver scream "Game over man, game over!" throughout the train. You'd think with the amount of money people are forced to pay, they'd do something with it. Planning doesn't seem to be in the top brasses remit, and this worries me somewhat... The meek seem to be stuck in a line, since seemingly idiots have inherited the earth...
    I have a cunning plan...So cunning you could pin a tail on it and call it a Weasel...

    Well last Xmas I had to face the irony of being told to go home after the snow on the car park had melted as it would be a risk under elf'n safety IF it snowed again. What a load of toss. I rely on traction control and not driving like a twat, never been trapped by snow in the UK thanks to that.

    Trust me learning to drive in Bolton is like learning to drive in a rain sodden ice bound downtown Baghdad. It prepares you for anything.

    lol thats not too bad. 2 snowflakes and everyone leaves early taking about 2hrs to get home (this is for 20 min drives). but the beauty is by the time i actually finish, the roads are normally clear so i can get home only very slightly slower. love it

    I dont usually post much, but Torn Blue Sky's mention of the Cathouse got me all nostalgic (Ahm fae Glesga mahsel, but ah moved oot here a wee bitty back.)

    Anyway, my wife is from Nagano, and she views the British reaction to the weather right now as highly amusing. "Have they never heard of snow tyres?" she asks, quite seriously...

    What worries me is that me (and the wife) are going to be back in Scotland over Christmas. Will the plane be able to land? More importantly, will it be able to take off again in January so's we can come home?

    Japan certainly has its faults (gorram 60hr work week!) but an inability to deal with bad weather is not one of them. Typhoon anyone? Earthquake, perhaps?

    Incidentally, the weather here at the mo is a tad chilly but the skies are clear and blue. It's probably about 7 or 8 centigrade. Typical winter weather for central Japan. Rather nice, actually

    Alas! The 1-7 inches of snow turned into... a dusting. And that 90% cloud cover we were supposed to have this day? If we reclassify "blue" as "cloud", they yes. Otherwise, not a cloud in the sky.

    WAHEY! It's still going strong btw.
    Shouldn't have too much trouble I reckon, I was coming back in the middle of the last major flurry a couple of weeks back and was hating the fact I may very well be stranded in Heathrow =( Turned out ok though. Hope it's a similar state of affairs around the time you're due back because my missus is coming over then!
