THE BIG FREEZE! by Sophie-Louise on 28 January 2004 9:40pm
So who else in the UK has experienced all this snow?? Most of you i should imagine! And how has it effected you?! The 2 amazing managers of Sasparilla, have made a BIG FREEZE PAGE about how we coped with the day;


So how bad has it been where you are???!!!

I was up at about 7:30 religiously refreshing the local radio station's 'closed school list'. No such luck. I nearly broke so many bones sliding up the road. But it was alright, and tonight, wrapped up warm, went out and danced in the snow. Afterall, am only 17. I am now praying that now (for only the sake of people on my school, not the other drivers) the snow freezes and it will be too dangerous. Otherwise i'm taking the day off anyway.

It wasn't too cold here. But there are icicles on my shed roof.

Well my daughter left work early today it took her an hour and a half to get home when it would normally take 15 minutes!!!

Apparently - according to my mother - in the UK in 1947 it snowed from January to April continously and food was still being rationed!! (after the war)

today we stockpile food and the snow only lasts for two days!!

..how about moving to california? all we have is sun and arnold....well, not necessarily in that order. and if things get dicey and icey road-wise, we can use arnolds hummer.... and here i am in my steep driveway potentially waiting for help.....but of course, no snow and ice here...sorry about that..........

The school is closed today. Yet... i stumble through ice and road and icy roads to find this out. Stupid school didn't decide to close until at least 8:10am. But... snow day :D

Please keep safe everybody. And keep warm. And drink hot liquids. God. I sound like a mother...

My school is open today but the snow is so thick that half the pupils aren't turning up and there isn't enough sixth formers to bother teaching the lessons, so i am working from home today!

Take great care everyone! There have been so many road accidents in Lincolnshire, nasty ones too :(

Well I went to school to start my new job and then got sent home as half of the students I was supposed to be working with couldn't get in! Not a bad start to a new job!

My school has never, ever been closed down by bad weather and they seem to be continuing this record, unfortunately for the 1000 students :( There is not even that much snow here (Edinburgh). But yesterday my friend and I went out into the playing field and wrote 'PEACE!' in the snow in huge letters so people in aeroplanes can read it!

They recognised defeat with us... our school never really closes either -i swear, independence day could be coming and they would just be teaching away.

Don't come to the eastern part of the USA, everybody! It's also in a deep freeze with lots of snow, ice, freezing rain and sleet. And oh sooo windy. So far, the schools in Maryland have been closed for 3 days. But they are slowly getting back to normal this morning, opening later than usual. But it's been another severe winter for us. Last year was horrid enough.
