How have you been affected by the snowfalls?

11 years ago...

I was left snowed in today. Couldnt take the car out. No buses and very few trains from Surbiton.
Anyone actually manage to get to work today?

YES, 'The Vic' ran out of Guinness


I work in London and I managed to get in every day. I boarded a train in Surbiton after waiting for about 30 minutes and got into Waterloo quite quickly. I then walked along the river to Lambeth Bridge which is near where my office is. Got home via same route.

It was mayhem in Surbiton Station on Tue am as there were more passengers than trains but I waited until it had calmed down and got into London slightly later than usual.

So for me it was business as usual, and at least SWT did make an effort to run a skeleton service on Mon and Tue, the bus companies were on the other hand totally spineless and defeatist even though the Met Office had warned about this weather last week.

Not very well as there were no trains to Shepperton (from Kingston) on Monday or Tuesday!

Couldnt get in either Jeff. Our transport system is "Third World"!
