The police have issued a stern warning to those who want to travel in the area of high speed on the highway people. Council gritting teams have urged drivers to prepare for every possibility. They suggested that they should bring warm clothing, food, drinks, medicines, boots, spades, and torches.

In spite of the inconvenience of travel, people still love the heavy snow. Children excitedly step the first footprint in the thick snow. Suddenly a big snowball hit your body when walking in the street, turning back and is happy smiling face. Even so, still have to pay attention to people safety.
