Guernsey is better prepared for snow than ever before
Thursday 8th December 2011, 2:29PM GMT.
GUERNSEY is ready for snow.
For the past three winters the island had suffered heavy snowfalls. But work has been going on behind the scenes to ensure the island is ready before the first flake falls.
Guernsey Airport has suffered some of the biggest problems in the past.
Just 10mm of snow falling on the 66,000 square metres of runway produces 100 tons of slush to clear.
Airport director Colin Le Ray said staff would try to minimise problems.
