Frozen Newport

Well, it looks like the snow over the weekend hit us pretty bad in Newport, Gwent.

Monday started off a bit slippy with icy pavements as there was no snow over the weekend since the heavy dollop we had on Friday.

Around 9am, the snow started to fall again, it soon became apparent on Newport's Cardiff Road (outside my workplace) that all the traffic was pretty much at a standstill.

This image of an Out Of Service bus carrying worried passengers (hopefully) to their destinations was a common sign yesterday. A couple of my colleagues who live furthest away managed to get half a mile up the road in their cars in about two hours!

Tesco was deserted when i got there at lunchtime - people even forsaking their shopping to get home. Note To Self - expect a stampede on Christmas Eve!
