Cold spell is on the way

People across Sussex are bracing themselves for another cold spell as freezing temperatures hit the county.

The Met Office has issued a Cold Weather Level 2 alert for the south east, and advising NHS and social care services to be prepared.

Prolonged periods of cold weather can be dangerous, especially for the very young, very old or those with chronic diseases.

Temperatures could plunge to as low as -3C overnight tomorrow (December 11) and are not expected to climb higher than 3C or 4C over the next three days.

Could the council please dump piles of salt/grit on the corner of streets please. We will do the rest, there are enough like minded people who have community spirit Two years ago we had the situation of the gritters not going out in town because the woman who gave the go ahead for this to happen was on holiday and no one else would make a decision. Result lots of extra fractures in the city. ( before you start, this was under a conservative administration )Names on a postcard please. Knowing B&H she has been promoted or fired with a huge payoff.

...and then the 'big freeze' doesn't happen and all that salt gets washed away by the rain forecast over the weekend as the temperature climbs to over 10 degrees then you'll be amongst the first complaining about the council wasting salt.
And even if it doesn't rain how long do you think the salt would be on the street before it was away on flatbeds or pickups? Or just as likely into peoples backyards for their own use.
Unfortunately the community spirit doesn't appear in everyone and it doesn't take many selfish types to **** it up for the majority.

.mmm that was meant to read to 'male bird' it up for the majority, I think the Argus profanity/swearing checker is a bit too sensitive.
