This morning we had a huge hail storm battering our offices. On top of the incredibly cold temperatures we have right now this was not a very welcome sight. After the hail had died down we just had to go outside and take a look at the aftermath. In a very short space of time we ended up with small verges of slush (surely one of the slipperiest materials on the planet) built up around the sides of our building.
We can only imagine that weather like this is going to get worse and slush is one of the worst offenders when it eventually starts to snow. Slush will easily turn into death defying ice should the conditions be right and has a tendency to cause flooding when it melts all in one day.
