Isle of Man snowbound.
5th January, 2010
Heavy overnight snow and freezing conditions have brought the island to a standstill today, Tuesday 5th January.
Cancellation of postal deliveries, bus services, closure of schools and reduced services followed the early morning snowfall which was up to 4 inches deep and resulted in numerous road closures.
Most of our deliveries have been delayed due to the conditions and with an early afternoon temperature drop forecast the prospect of a thaw is not very promising.
We will do our best to provide services wherever we can but would ask all customers to bear with us at this difficult time.
Coldest winter for decades - what happened to Global Warming!!!
