A good few inches up here in the North East. There isn't really enough snow to cause any bother if the grit trucks have been out, which they haven't. The councils are spouting the usual guff about cars grinding it in. If that's the case then grit a day or two earlier. Even then, you know when the roads have been gritted as you can hear it on your car. I did see one grit truck this morning, but it wasn't gritting mad.gif . It took me an hour and ten minutes to do a 35 minute journey, oh and guess what, the schools are closing. This country is bloody pathetic.

Light dusting in Stoke. However family in Neustadt, Canada have got 14 inches worth.

Beat that London biggrin.gif

London will beat it. You can bet there will be more disruption in London with 1 inch of snow that there will be in Neustadt with it's 14 inches. biggrin.gif

Attractive blizzard in Edinburgh yesterday which had melted by the time I left the office. Bit more overnight, which make the hills look lovely, but makes it a ###### to walk on some of the slopes!

Proper snow in Chesham and, shockingly, people driving sensibly or not at all.
Cheer up, RL is actually rather good

Moderately heavy snow here. The two main trunk roads, the A14 and A12 are shut in decently large sections. The A12/A14 junction is closed because a trucker drove too quickly, skidded and jack-knifed his lorry. None of the dangerous non-commuter roads, i.e. those on reasonable hills, have been gritted and are only passable with extreme care, if at all.

For once, my game this weekend has been cancelled very early. I'll be missing the wonders of the South Woodham Ferrers v Canvey Island local derby.

freezing winds and snow last night in Nottingham, bloody unpleasant to be in it, it was the factory christmas discotheque and drink up.

A good night though,everyone suited and booted, it's good to see folks make the effort to dress well

Lashed it down in Hook (in Hampshire) last night

In fact it was soooo bad some people couldn't make it to work - call me cynical but I really don;t think they've tried THAT hard
Now then, it's a race between Sandie....and Fairburn....and the little man is in........yeees he's in.

I, just like those Castleford supporters felt that the ball should have gone to David Plange but he put the bit betwen his teeth...and it was a try

Kevin Ward - best player I have ever seen

The real Mick Gledhill is what you see on here, a Bradford fan ........, but deep down knows that Bradford are just not good enough to challenge the likes of Leeds & St Helens.

It has started snowing again and the compacted snow in the tyre tracks left by cars has turned into ice.

Lovely. I'm very glad we're both working at home today.

Fantastic - I can see the school kids sliding home in those tracks - happy days!

That brings back memories!

The view looking out of my back window from my office:

Just a quick point&shoot.

Edit: now it's snowing even heavier than it was last night.

Prolonged heavy snow shower while I was at work. Left a covering of a couple of inches. Looked very pretty on the Norway Spruce just outside the office window. Got home, a mere five miles away, and there was barely a dusting of the stuff.

Pony on Anlaby Common this morning. Doesn't look too impressed with the weather:
