No Grit?

Interesting times on Plains of Waterloo this morning with some drivers making it but most not.

It is now 11am still no grit and therefore no busses very few cars and very few customers.
At last here in the banana republic of Thanet a solution, the snow on the road has melted of its own accord, the busses are running again and people are in my bookshop buying people books for Christmas presents again.


  1. Yep the economy is governed by the councils attitude to the tax payers. Ohhhhhhhhhh dont get me started BAH HUMBUGS

  2. Don in the 22 years I have been here they have never failed to grit this hill when it snows, it is critical to the main Thanet bus route. Well it is now 5pm and below freezing and yes the hill still hasn’t been gritted.


Please note comments that may be libellous, comments that may be construed as offensive, anonymous derogatory comments about real people, comments baiting internet trolls, comments saying that an anonymous comment was made by a named real person, boring comments and spam comments, comments in CAPs will be deleted. Playground stuff like calling real people by their time stamp or surname alone, referring to groups as gangs, old duffers and so on will result in deletion. Comment that may be construed as offensive to minority groups is not allowed here either, so think before you write it, remember that the internet is a public place, that it is very difficult to be truly anonymous and that everyone who uses it leaves a trail of some sort. Also note the facility to leave anonymous comment will be turned of during periods when I am unable to monitor comment, this will not affect people commenting who are signed on to their blogger accounts. When things are particularly difficult on the commercial spam front I may turn comment moderation on for periods.

If you feel that someone has left a comment that is offensive and directed at you personally please email me (link on the sidebar) asking to have it removed, you will need to tell which post and the date and timestamp of the offending comment. Please do not reply to the offending comment as I will assume you continuing the dialogue as meaning that you want the comments left there.
