MrWXYZ says...

is it actually panic buying or people just doing the shopping they would do tomorrow today?

People buying trolley loads of bread and milk are stupid.
People shopping today rather than tomorrow is just logical if they are worried about not being able to easily drive to the supermarket tomorrow

This is pathetic. A live feed on something that hasnt happened yet and some bright spark making the feeblest attempt at soothsaying that I've ever seen. Quote: "Prediction: tomorrow Worcester will come to a complete standstill, snow chaos, panic buying, no chance of driving anywhere. Oh joy." What a truly stupid statement.

Why don't you use the hashtag #WorcesterSnow instead of just #Snow? I'm sure Worcester isn't the only place in the world with snow...

Santa came up to me and told me that he'd lost his sleigh so I pointed him in the direction of Reindeer Court.

QUOTE: "Would have been so much easier for schools to have made decision yesterday! #snow"

Yes and then they would have been slated for closing if the snow hadn't arrived!

I am a teacher and every single member of staff made it into work today but I only had 5 kids in my class and over all we had less than half of the children come in however when we close the school we get it in the neck!

This is the ledbury reporter website, perhaps we could actually have some information about LEDBURY and the surrounding area instead of Malvern and worcester! Fed up of the paper having very little about ledbury.

With regards to Schools opening since we had a Amber Alert through the Met Office this should have made common sense for all schools to close whilst this alert was in force that way everybody knows exactly what to do instead of that schools like Tudor Grange didn't decide to close the school and then at about 10am decided to send all pupils home ok for the older children but not so youngers ones when people work not a very ideal safe situation -

So it snows and the roads become very dangerous.....what on earth makes pedestrians walk in the middle of the road. Today I had to sound my horn to a family of four spread across the middle of the road quickly followed by someone pushing a pushchair......!!!

I went to the Tesco Express in Martley Road to buy our usual supply of milk earlier this afternoon - was there any there? Was there *****! All gone and no sign of a delivery.

Shame on all those who panicked and denuded the shelves.
