I have a theory that everything technical in my house is from the black market.All 3 of my parents laptops have had problems,My stereo packed up,and even the kettle fizzed then exploded :( Also my Windows XP computer, which I've had since 2006 decided to permanently 'Log Out'. So I bought a new "gaming" computer with the OS being Windows 7 and when I installed RCT3 I was told constantly that RCT3 "Cannot run on this computer" :( Sims 3 is an OK replacement but not as fun as RCT3.

I don't think it really counts as much of a closed season if every week you visit somewhere with rides though imo.As for me this closed season couldn't come sooner; I'm loving it.

One thing that has annoyed me slightly...Now, I completely understand that snow will affect transport. I know that with the heavy downpour I've had the past few days - resulting is about 5 inches of snow - is bound to cancel a few trains and flights and buses and whatever else.On Saturday and Sunday, when the snow was falling, trains were running. Yet now, despite the condition of the tracks improving, trains are now cancelled in my area. Meant I couldn't get into college today, which was annoying. And now the snow is falling again, already had nearly an inch in about half an hour. No roads gritted, no paths gritted. I sure do hope that Philip Hammond is choking on his words that we'd "be able to cope with (the snow)."

You expect roads and paths to be gritted as soon as snow falls?Never gonna happen... Even if they did it would still take ages for some areas to be gritted...Half the time it's not the actual snow falling that is the problem... It's the ice and settled hard snow that is the main issue... Ever been hit with a properly packed snowball? It hurts more than a fresh one mainly as the snow is a lot harder as it's been compacted (I could go deeper into how the molecule behave, but cba)... Hence it can cause immense problems with train suspension... And the issues with ice should be obvious... I bloody skidded in my car today around a corner due to ice... Imagine what a metallic rail suffers from when it gets iced up...And why were you meant to go into college today? That sucks big time...On the subject of snow... I just drove down to London from Manchester today... And snow didn't affect me in the slightest... It damn well affected my train on Saturday because ended up being on one for 4 odd hours... But I didn't moan because the snow was indeed heavy...So basically, DEAL WITH IT... Stop whinging about it...

In no way am I expecting roads to be gritted straight away.But the fact that no grit whatsoever had been laid down prior - and yes, it was predicted (granted, not as much) - that is what I don't like.Yep, been hit by a properly packed snowball, and it does blooming hurt. Also, was in a skidding car on Saturday, striking the kerb with a bit of force. That hurts a bit too..Yeah, college term meant to finish tomorrow, though will probably not open tomorrow. I was meant to be getting past papers today dor revision, which is why I'm annoyed.In the end, yeah, I'm moaning about the snow. So? I can deal with it, and have dealt with it so far, but there's a point where I just tire of how unprepared this country can be...

I'm tired of people moaning about it.If the road is usually gritted, it would've been gritted. It doesn't stop snow settling.Dunno if you get on trains, but if you did you'd realise the past few weeks, the platforms are gritted everyday.. yet when the snow falls.. omg.. it settles on it.Bloody hell. Expect bloody disruption. Every country in the world gets it. Its just how they deal with it. And tbf, they've dealt with it well (apart from ****ty spanish owned heathrow - but we all know why that is).

Whilst the stations I've seen don't get gritted (though, to be fair, I only ever see 3) I'll give the staff or whoever the kudos that they actual shovel it or something, cause the snow was pretty much cleared when I saw it on Tuesday, whilst most other places had snow / ice.

Also, whilst I'm not the ranting at Ricky personally here (as so many people do it, and his was the easiest to quote :P), how hard is it to differentiate between YOUR and YOU'RE!?!?!
