HEAVY snowfall spelled major disruption across Wrexham yesterday.
Some commuters were left stranded after more than three inches of snow fell across the county and bus services were cancelled or terminated en route.
It took pensioner Les Evans an hour to travel a mile through Coedpoeth on his way home from a doctor’s appointment.
He told the Leader: “The whole road was blocked completely, and the traffic wasn’t moving for ages.
“You could tell that everybody was getting impatient. Luckily I was only travelling for a mile but one lady said she was trying to get to Llandegla. It was ridiculous really.”
GHA Coaches services from Wrexham to Brymbo, Moss and Ruthin had to be suspended because of the poor conditions.
Meanwhile the Arriva service from Wrexham to Penycae had to terminate in Rhos, and a service to Brymbo could only go as far as Pentre Broughton.
There were no delays on the railways, but Network Rail warned there could be a risk of flooding as the snow melts.
At least one mischief-maker was purported to be throwing snowballs from a footbridge over the Wrexham bypass.
A spokesman for North Wales Police said: “We were called at 12pm to reports of a male dropping a snowball from a footbridge over A483 near the Gresford roundabout.”
There were mixed feelings about the snow on social networking site Facebook.
User Lizzie Jones said: “Braved the snow and been to town. And now it's pj's for the rest of the day.”
Sarah Williams wrote: “Hibernation sounds good right about now.”
Kacii Lou said: “This weather is highly annoying now. Another day off work because of it.”
Arron Bates posted: “I hate snow so much. No excuses for cleaning my room today.”
And Ashley Thompson said: “Hurry up rain.”
