    Cwmbran too Abertillery 6am, through 3 boroughs, no evidence of any gritting. 'Phoned Torfaen, Cearphilly and Blaenau Gwent Councils all said they had gritted my 3 passengers and I left the vehicle several times and found no grit. Lives are at risk!

    For gods sake BUY some SNOW clearing equipment. Its not that snowing is uncommon and due to climate change its going to be a fixture EVERY year for the foreseeable future.
    Businesses are losing millions and wages are lost and the general economy tanks for weeks, and thats without the hospital and injury bills
    Its worth the investment because its largely money you can never get back.
    I lived in Ohio and we got 150 inches of snow most years I never lost a day of work because they were properly "tooled-up".
    Better get started on this because its only going to get worse.

    Re' robodads commment on not driving, we had to get home after doing our nightshit. Quite Simple, So has there never been a fatality in these type of coditions? Not a "Drama Queen", Just a tired nightshift worker in need of his bed!

    Gwent does not exist. It was a failed local government experiment. Born 1974 to universal hatred. Died 1996 - SIXTEEN YEARS AGO!
