Wintry Weather doesn’t stop Everything Dinosaur
Today, the worst snow falls in 18 years have hit southern England bringing traffic to a standstill and the cancellation of most of the south-east’s public transport. Further north, we have had snow and it is still falling, although we have not had it as bad as London for example.
However, more snow is forecast tonight and the commute into work for some of the staff was a bit scary, what with the slippy road conditions. Good news everybody made it in and we have kept packing and despatching orders for customers.
We invested in our own grit container and we have plenty of brushes and shovels in the warehouse so we set out this morning to sweep the warehouse yard and the access. It took about an hour to clear all the snow and then we salted the area to (hopefully) prevent more snow settling.
We are using early Mesozoic salt and grit, to read more about this: Salting the roads, a 240-million year trip back in time.
Most of the team have gone home early, but a few of us brave souls will work late tonight so that we can keep on top of things.
The weather forecast is bad for the next few days, we have had to cancel a couple of our teaching sessions due to the adverse weather. Let us hope that Spring arrives soon.
