An inch or two here, and still falling, but the wind is the enemy. Swirling around on the field behind us.

Even coming down thick and fast here in Formby on the sheltered west Lancashire coast. If we're getting any snow at all somewhere must be getting it bad.

Less on the roads over the Pennine moors than I might have expected given how much it usually drifts, only a covering rather than feet deep. I might has well been driving with my eyes closed given the visibility with the snow and fog in places though.

Struggled to get out this morning. Not stopped snowing all morning but, in a world's first, Bradford Council's gritters are on top the job.

I hope it's nothing serious, or else they'll have to change the name again.

No, it's just so staff can get home before travelling becomes too difficult.

After your slightly belated post on the Wakey-Leeds thread, I thought you were about to tell us it's been snowing! :D ;)

Meh. We just get memos sent round advising us that emergency Winter packs are available for those staff that don't want to travel and instead want to use an unoccupied room in the hospital accomodation block.

Either that or it can't make any progress against the ferocious nithering easterly coming off the North Sea.

Spoke too bloody soon. Very fine snerr here, but enough to give a general covering of everything.

Just walked up to the in laws with the wife to see her horse. It's between chest and head deep in places here, and the ploughs have quit trying to clear the roads in the village as it's to much for them.

Some interesting drifts about too.

Went out for a walk this afternoon to take a few photos of what it's like up here.

This is the track to our house. It's up to about 3ft deep.

This is the in-laws. It's about 7ft deep at it's highest here, and we spent a fair part of this afternoon digging the 30 or so metres length that was blocked so that the lone caravaner could get off the site tomorrow morning.

This was a car parked up outside it's owners house in the village.

There is one road through the village. Yesterday, ploughs couldn't get through. Today, the snow blaster, ploughs and gritters have been constantly on the go for about 6 hours, and even then, I'm not sure that the road is clear enough to get in and out, as the snow blows over as quickly as it gets cleared.
