It all started like a scene from the day after tomorrow…
All transport is off.
Glasgow is a dystopian hell frozen over.
The subway is inhabited by the chosen few survivors.
Those on the surface have to fight to live. Pastry’s from Greg’s are now legal tender.
Govan has fallen.

This guy was spotted waiting at a bus stop in Drumchapel unaware the busses were off.
This guy has been standing at the bus stop on Kinfauns at Spey Road, can someone tell the eejit there's no buses running! And approach with caution he was a bit frosty with me when I spoke to him
But it all kicked off when the notorious RED WEATHER WARNING was issued bringing potential for chaos and destruction.

Some other parents were not so strict.
Police, local councils and weather men: "We are now under a RED WARNING meaning DANGER TO LIFE please take care- stay away from roads and only leave the house if absolutely necessary."Everycunt else:

But it didn’t last long before coming to an all to predictable end.

But soon stories of traffic jams and people being stuck on roads for hours and carers unable to get to vulnerable people started to come through.
And then Glaswegians came together as always to show that #peoplemakeGlasgow yet again with acts of selflessness, heroism and bravery to assist those in need.
Left the office at 2.45pm. Been stuck on the M80 for over 5hrs. Some family (guy, his Dad and a friend) who stay near…
Ross, who helped a medical professional get to a premature care ward, is looking to help more doctors and carers get to their destination.
Let's hear it for our amazing staff! The NHS at its best.www.nhsggc.org.uk/about-us/media-centre/news/2018/02/nhsggc-staff-pull-together-as-weather-bites/
Then it was back to the banter.
May as well get a bit of garden work done well you're off work
