Let it snow
It was a brief but memorable morning when the first snow of
winter came down this morning.
To the delight of the young and the not so young, soft white
flakes flittered down to the ground.
But for drivers it was a different story.
The A2 Watling Street is slow London-bound between Strood and
the Darenth Interchange because of the snow.
Also affected is the A226 between Higham and the outskirts of
Traffic was forced to slow down in the snow down and a number of
cars lost control.
It's likely to be the last we see of the snow this week, though
temperatures tomorrow morning are expected to drop to -1 but on
Friday rise to five degrees.
There were also troubles on the trains at Dartford station.
MP Gareth Johnson said: “Southeastern Trains need to get a grip
on their winter services.
"Just a week ago they briefed local MP’s on how well prepared
they were for any snow.
"I stood on a platform in my constituency waiting for a very
delayed train this morning with no information being given to
passengers, yet there was just a dusting of snow.”
