Well, this will be a laugh up here, if any snow ever falls, or ice forms this winter....

Highland Council seem to have a better reputation than Orkney Islands Council.  Winter maintenance here involves lots of driving round and round the main roads, with ploughs and blades set at least a foot above the road surface, and keeping putting on grit and salt in the hope that eventually, the snow and slush might finally disappear....

Fortunately for OIC, theres not been any snow of worth for years!

It seems that caithness only has one man allocated to keeping the winter roads clear!

And he doesn't even have a shovel!!

I like how the Central Belt gets men with 'suit and tie' AND they've got a lawn mower adapted to shovel stuff up! It's definitely discriminatory. We should write to someone?
