Damn snow!

Now in any country in the world snow is not a problem. Apart from that is, the UK.

Talk about blaming the government for the weather. Well, with the Trade Unions insistence over the years on creating global warming by not allowing workers to work in conditions less than 65d egrees, they ahven't prepared for snow because they thought clearly that they had the planets temperature up sufficientlt high enough over the last 10 years that we woul never see it again.

 

Anyway we have three inches of snow and still falling. Lightly; no drifting no blaizzard.

The country is at a standdstill. Trains buses cancelled, taxis saying they can't get about unless you pay double, and schools factories and offices and shops all closed.

THREE lousy inches.

 

Now I may add that we pay for a whole fleet of gritters and their staff which have to be employed 24/7 all year to grit the roads , waiting for the 10 days a year when they actually have to do some work. Waht happens? they can't get into work because of the snow. This government HAS to go and NEVER should we even contemplate ever having them again. Absolutely useless. They are now talking about getting the army out to grit the roads. Pathetic. That is what happens when you give trade unions power.

 

Anyway. I am going for a walk to see if there are any furs about. yes I will be wearing mine.

Stop press:

 

I live in one of the biggest cities in Wales. We are snowed in. All supplies cut off. Nothing working, not even the TV. The Local Authority are closed; their vehicles abandoned on the hill. I will continue to broadcast as long as I can before telecommunications with the outside world are lost.

 

This is F***** pathetic. My friend from Siberia who is in the UK keeps ringing up in fits of laughter about how pathetic it .

 

Well it all looks pretty desolate outside. The phone isn't working now either. As I said, I will broadcast until there is no hope left. It shan't be long before the crack heads start resorting to cannibalism as the supermatrkets are closed.

 

On the upside, the Hunt is preparing for tomorrow without problem. Nothing like a winter scene with the hounds in full cry in persuit of the wily pink fox. The Eagles shall be in flight after them so no law is broken.

 

I would love to see this situation continue for months. Maybe we can reintroduce caribou and wolf. The thought of wolf packs roaming the deserted frozen streets picking off the starving smack heads would be sure to see their numbers increas withi a few years to the extent where they would be sustainable enough for the few of us who survive because we have furs would be interesting.

 

But of course, as the UK slips into a new frozen dark age, few will survive. Those of us who can may need asisstance form advanced nations like Greenland and Siberia. Forget food; for those of us who can survive we will hunt. But we need HAY for our horses. DON'T land the rescue helicopters; you may come under attack from starving urban hollow faced ghouls. Shoot them between the eyes if you are compromised. Otherwise they do not die.

 

TOS, signing off , the frozen apaocalyptic wastelands of the UK.

 

Three inches of snow indeed.

That is pretty bad unless that stuff is drifting badly. You don't even need snow tires to navigate through three inches. Only thing is that if it is all drifted into large drifts it can block the road with drifts up to three of four feet deep if it gets to drifting. Don't know if you have snow plows there (you didn't mention them) but the can cut through even those drifts like butter as they have so much power and so much weight behind them any more when they put all of that ballast in the back of them over the drive wheels. Only thing that I do notice is that folks who do not drive in it often can often over-react and land up in the ditch more easily. Believe it or not here we have to be careful on the first snow falls as it takes a few minutes to get your skills and senses back.

 

I remember of driving up through the Southern US one time. I believe it was Southern Kentucky and there was a storm like that. I stopped into a shopping center and they asked if I walked and I wondered why. They said everything was cancelled and that shopping center was about the only thing open. And strange part was that there was no snow. As I recall probably three inches or so just like you mention.

 

Anyhow, hope you at least get some fur viewing. You can leave us some more photos maybe of folks in furs today.

I fear the worst has begun. My girlfriend has just been to the local shop to try to buy credit for her mobile. The shop was closed. It usually only closes christmas evening. The shivering tracksuited young zombies were eyeing her hungrily. She retruned quickly after flashing her lighter at them. They recoiled as they hadn't seen real fire before.

 

The computer network will soon collapse too. Looters are robbing abandoned cars. We can't have martial law as all our troops are in f***** Iraq.

 

I will as i said, continue to broadcast as long as I can.

For those survivors in the UK a mesage.

 

STAY IN YOUR HOMES. If you venture out wear fur at all times. The zombies are afraid of it. We will set beacons up in villages all over the counryside for survivors of this frozen urban apoclaypse. We CAN survive in the countryside; we have A...N...I...M...A...L...S . Real live ones. They lay eggs and give milk and everything. But beware. When you approach the barricades you will be shot on sight if you are not in fur. This is the only way we can tell you apart from the zombies. But if you are not used to us beware. There are also DANGEROUS wild animals in the countryside that you will never have seen before. Stoats can give a nasty nip to the ankle, and it is true; the great black and white one exists! In great number. They too bite and their claws can rip you open. There be badgers. And the running hopping great ones, with antlers...yes too we have them. They are real. And there be dragons too. Great black things with crests and orange bellies of fire up to 10 inches long...YES , you thought you had killed them al off with your urban ways but there are still great crested newts. All these creatures will survive the terrible arctic conditions. The cities will not. Get out NOW before they start eating you and make for the countryside. The farmers are putting grit down; fear not.

 

DO NOT APPROACH ANY HOLLOW EYED YOUTHS IN THE TOWNS... THEY WILL ATTACK DEPRIVED OF THEIR CRACK.

 

TOS , signing off. I will stay in the city at this terminal as long as I can. But there are nearly four inches now and nearly 5 where it has drifted.

Didn't Orson Wells scare half of America with radio play like this. Did you do the screen play ToS?

 

We have no snow here, and it's not uncommon for the southerners here to panic at the sight of a dark cloud. Having said that, some transport networks are having trouble and some schools are closed, but some areas have more than 3 inches of snow.

 

Even so the whole scenario is pretty pathetic, the trouble is we aren't a nation of snow, it comes, it goes, it never stays here for 4 months or more, and we seldom get huge amounts. In reality we just aren't skilled in dealing with it.

 

When you get forcasts that say 8 inches of snow for my region, and nothing arrives you can understand the authorities scepticism, and their inability to have gritters and snow ploughs ready and manned, it all costs money that the Government aren't providing, and invariably comes from budgets from other services in an already cash strapped local government authority.

Tryxie is from a place which we regard as being off the edge of the world. We draw a line north of Birmingham and it says on some maps:

 

"Here be oiks"

 

As for the weather, up north it is always raining. Even on days it were fine it were overcast. They wear t shirts and flimsy dresses in temperatures of minus 10 and in the words of the Kaiser Chiefs:

 

"if it wasn't for chip fat they'd be frozen"

 

In fact worth checking out the whole lyrics to see how grim life is up north. Actually urban Wales is pretty similar:

Anyway at least they have "pie n peas".

 

No wonder the vikings left.

If you don't like the political system, you have the opportunity every council election to change things. Better still join a political party and stand for election yourself. That's what I'm doing. Then you can put your money where your mouth is and see if you can do a better budget.

 

I do agree that the central government local authority grant system wants re-evaluation to stop the scandalous waste of money come the financial year end.

Great mews Tryxie who are you standing for?

 

I am going to start a Libertarian party.

Across party so we don't clash with libertarian tories.

 

My first policy on election will be to build a wall across the north of Birmingham, and just under Birmingham too being a Labour city.

 

Second will be to give tax rebates for people who don't have kids as they don't use the appalling education system.

Actually the Vikings are still here. The Flamborough peninsula, tother side of Danes Dyke (named after a famous saxon prostitute) is known as little Denmark. They still have Viking festivals there every year. If you ever want to meet strange folk, that's the place. Trust me.

 

Anyway, this is all off topic for the Fur Den, so I'm going to attempt to move the thread to the Pub. If I loose it I apologise.

This is neat...a real live British political debate, and no telly required.

I understand your point entirely Touch of Sable. It does seem a bit mucfh that so little snow has to cause so much chaos. In Helsinki they do not plow or shovel at all...some sand is put down, and people wear shoe grips, but that is all.

I have never been a big fan of snow myself...cold yes, but not snow. Reason being that I do not like to wear my f/l furs when it gets sloppy, as they can get ruined along the bottom. Granted I do have and wear shorter furs at these times, but I much prefer the long ones and so like it cold and dry...like it is at the moment here.

Crackllee.....buzzzzzz....fizzzzzzz.....

 

sorry I am losing you. I will continue...craccccclee...fizzzzz...to broadcast as long as possible from the forzen apocalypse. There is rumour tomorow a train is running. If that is so, and the plane can escape , then I will be in sanctuary in St Moritz by sunday. But there are a lot of ifs there.

 

We made an expedition into the frozen wastes this afternoon. It is true. ZOmbie like creatures are at the wheels of cars, ploghing through the intraversable stuff they cal slush at 5 miles an hour. It is not frozen but they they are ZOMBIES they don't know that.

 

NOBODY said a word to us about our full length black power furs. Only compliments from some shivering people who realise that they have been condemned to a heartless death by the petro chemical synthetics industry that sold them criminal lies disguised as enlightenment.

 

But I fear the worst here. If this last for very ....craccklee...fizzzzzzz....much longer human life here is doomed. Doomed by a lie that synthetics and heat from non renewable resources somehow offers "civilisation".

 

 

All of you survivors in the UK; heed my words. If you are snowed in now take to the streets; the pubs; partciularly country pubs. Take to smart hotels and restaurants; they will be gald of the custom as the synths and PETAphiles shiver in their over heated homes with their tofu; but soon the national grid will fail and they will die.

 

GET OUT NOW> IN YOUR FURS > RECLAIM THE STREETS> I have seem dozens here doing the same. We will survive as long as there is SNOW.

 

TOS...crackle fizzzz...spattttt....wooowwwoooow...crackle......signing off......British civilsation under socialism cannot survive such inhospitable weather after 10 years of them engineering gloabl warming. It is over. But we shall survive those of us in furs and real mukluks.

Snow!?? Three inches!?? Three inches is NOT a snowstorm! Why, that's barely a "flurry"!

 

Three inches? BAH!!

 

>> THIS is snow. <<

 

Just plain, old, ordinary snow. Nothing special. Just snow.

 

>> More snow. <<

 

Not a snowstorm. It's just normal winter weather.

In fact, we're a bit LIGHT on the snow this year.

 

>> THIS is about normal snowfall. <<

 

And we still go out driving in it every day!

 

>> THIS is what the freeways look like. <<

 

And, dare I say, WE get it easy! If you go out west to Montana and Colorado, they get average snofalls measured in FEET.

 

If I say to you, "Oh, we only got 3 inches of snow yesterday..."

Somebody from out west would say, "Oh, we only got 3 feet of snow yesterday..."

 

Those people in the UK are just acting like a bunch of wussies!

I thought this site was for fur coat appreciation. If ToS has any gripes about the state of his country he should visit his local town hall and stop boring the rest of us

All we have is rain. We were promised 8 inches, I feel cheated. I've often been promised 8 inches and you guys always disappoint, so I'm used to being let down. I'm sure I'll get over it.

Touch of Sable, I have enjoyed your reports from the new ice age very much. Sorta reminds me of the film The Day After Tomorrow, except they were all too dumb and pc to wear furs...and of course many died as a result. Oh well, at least those of us in the Den will survive.

Thanks Lynxette it was meant as a kind of amusing sariricial comment on how we do not prepare for the cold weather in the UK. Sorry you found it a bore Golsable but this is off topic and we are free to post anything we want. You are not obliged to read it.

Goldsable,

 

Could you make just one post that doesn't cut someone down? It would be very refreshing!
