    contrary to reports life as we know it has not ended in swansea...indeed at the time of writing (3.30pm) there is very little snow on the ground...and what remains will soon be washed away by the forthcoming rain...but this has not stopped the joke that is first cyrmru withdrawing all its bus services in swansea after 6 pm this evening.....this surely must be the last straw for this company? as it is you cannot get a bus in swansea anywhere on a sunday after 7pm..now they are breaking their own contract by summairly withdrawing all services in swansea this evening when there is manifestly no need for this.....the local council and the welsh government have to step in and take the contract to operate a bus service in swansea off worst cymru....er i mean first cymru...as this greedy private company clearly has utter contempt for bus users in swansea...

    The problem we have is that we normally only have snow for a few days a year or even every couple of years. But when it does come, combined with a wet climate it causes problems for everyone. If we were living in a country such as Austria, we would be used to driving in such conditions, we would have to have winter tyres by law and buildings would be designed with snow in mind. We probably only have a limited number of snowploughs and gritters because we rarely need them.

    I agree with the two comments below, I was born in 1944 and not once did any of the schools I attended close due to snow.

    People in the USA & Europe must laugh their socks off at us, a few inches of snow & we're brought to a stop. When did we become such wimps. I recall in 1947 kids still went to school, trudging a couple of miles through deep snow, even though there was no heating due to no coal, simply keeping their hats, coats & gloves on In 1962/3 we just drove on the snow, the biggest problem was finding petrol.

    A few centimetres of snow and everything grinds to a halt. Children would never learn a thing and teachers would have to longest holidays in the world if e.g. Sweden, Germany, Austria, Switzerland etc.ect. went as mad about snow as the British.
