Feeling the frosty chill...
The UK didn't have a white Christmas...however grab those snow shovels, as the snow is coming! Extreme weather conditions are becoming inevitable, be prepared and get those shovels at the ready.
Parts of Britain are expected to experience the coldest temperatures in years. The Met Office have issued severe weather warnings in multiple locations of the UK. Motorists have once again been warned of difficult driving conditions and travel disruptions. If it is not necessary to go out, then avoid doing so, the elderly have been urged to stay indoors and stay warm.
Night-time temperatures of -5°C to -10°C are possible, whether you receive a large or small amount of snow, wrap up warm this winter. Accidents will happen, resulting in a visit to hospital, with beds being filled. Have you ever noticed the trolley castors which are required to move the hospital beds?
Snow is likely to trigger traffic chaos as usual...however for kids a snow day off school means fun! Snow castors and wheels for sledges and snow ploughs are essential. The snow ploughs which are used to clear our roads run on large pneumatic castors, they crush the snow as they drive through. Snow plough castors are fitted behind the main blades, designed to guide a snow plough and keep the blades above road level.
