We are complaining about a few inches of snow and the gridlock it causes.
All the blame is being put on the NRA and the councils, where is the personal
responsibility here. We expect the councils to be prepared with salt and grit
and snow ploughs but we think we dont have to do fanny adams.
Contrary to the public conception here if people on the continent didnt take
personal action they would not stir either. They will be driving in conditions
much worse than ours even when treated. They would come to a standstill
too but they all use snow tires or snow chains, u have ure second set and
when the weather changes u change and get prepared. We drive round
on ordinary tyres and expect the council to have the roads all ready for
us like laying down a red carpet. Before people start oh we have no tyres
cant get tyres etc what were u doing all the year? We got our warning
last winter,how many of u have prepared?
Fail to prepare and u prepare to fail.
We can blame the goverment for lots of things but not the weather we
must also make an effort ourselves.Personally i have a 4x4 so dont have
a prob getting around and thats travelling all untreated roads, but its
up to each individual to make their own arrangments to a certain degree
