There's no business like snow business!
Witty ways with snow were on show across the district as folk found ways of making their own unique snowmen.
There was a handstanding fellow in one Bradford garden, and a tour de force of a Tour de France homme de neige in another.
As ever, the snow produced a range of unsung heroes across the district.
Dedicated paperboy Daniel Botwood battled through the snow to deliver the Telegraph & Argus around Odsal, having started his round in the New Year.
“It’s six days a week and the cold doesn’t bother me – I’m really enjoying it,” said Daniel, 14, who goes to Buttershaw Business and Enterprise College.
Bradford Councillor Adrian Naylor (Craven, Ind) said: “Farmers are the unsung heroes of the snowy weather.
“They’re out and about with buckets in front of their tractors clearing the side roads so ordinary people can get out and about.”
Members of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Youth Association (AMYA) based out of Baitul Hamd Mosque on Leeds Road, Bradford, have been out with shovels and salt.
They have been clearing streets and driveways, helping motorists and elderly residents with their shopping.
AMYA member, Intisar Ahmad, said: “I have elderly grandparents and I’d hope that someone would visit them and make sure they are safe, much in the same way we do with our elderly neighbours when the cold weather hits.”
Refuse wagons have been out around the district but as conditions on side and back roads remain dangerous, crews have made collections from main roads and, if possible, from treated bus routes.
Ian Bairstow, Strategic Director for Environment and Sport said: “We apologise for any inconvenience these disruptions may cause. Our gritting teams have been and will continue to work extremely hard to keep the main roads of our district clear. We have also diverted our street cleansing crews to gritting other parts of the district.”
Meanwhile, inconsistencies over school closures were highlighted.
No-one was available for comment at Bingley Grammar yesterday afternoon, but a Council spokesman confirmed the decision was down to each individual headteacher.
