Grit-ting my teeth!
ONCE again just a few inches of snow has caused chaos.
Once again gritters seem have been slow off the mark and cars are struggling even on main roads.
Once again, minor roads are a no go area.
Once again I find myself walking to work as I live in a cul-de-sac with a slight hill - ungritted of course!
Once again I try the yellow grit box - and once again it is empty.
But why should I be surprised; it has been empty since before Christmas.
Once again businesses, including my own, will be paying the price in both time and money.

Once again Welwyn Hatfield’ authorities seem completely impotent in the face of, what is in effect, only slightly more severe weather conditions than should be expected in January.
I must confess myself to be heartily sick of this - and all the lame excuses!
A Hertfordshire Highways spokeswoman said: “We have gritted less than we normally do.
“We went out today (Wednesday) at 4am and did all A and B roads.
“We are going out again now (9am).”
