It's coming down in the Calder Valley.

As it is in the Aire Valley. Might make the journey between the two a bit more interesting this evening. B)

I'll be heading over Cock Hill at about 4.30, so should be interesting. There's usually a que by the Waggon & Horses when it gets snowy. Will see what it's like before I decide whether to go through the centre of Keighley or round the back routes of Sutton & Goose Eye, Oakworth and Haworth.

Any Romanians in it?

I had heard it's going to be renamed the Waggon & Beef. ;)

Buses now suspended over that route. Means there must be a fair bit of snow on the road, as they normally run for longer than you'd imagine.

Strange snow conditions in Bradford. It's snowed steadily for four hours, but very fine snow .... only 1.5 inches deep on the ground.

It's been snowing here since about 10am, yet there is none on the road or paths and only a dusting settled on the grass. I suspect it will be worse higher up though, hence the buses stopped between Oxenhope & Hebden Bridge.

The roads in north Leeds are in utter chaos. At 1.30 I offered someone a lift to Morrisons, a round trip of about 10 miles. I got home at 5.45.

I've never seen anything like it, but it was made worse by spending an hour gridlocked right outside Headingley stadium. Bah!

Yeh plenty of reports of it being mental, the most disruptive day so far. Is it to do with the snow immediately being slushy? It didn't seem like proper powder.

I expect everyone had stopped to marvel at the sun that always shines there.

Traffic is bad aro9und Headingley because half the cars don't actually have wheels anymore.

Well I got my interesting journey home. Set off from work in what I can only describe as rain, but lumps of ice instead of drops, which meant the roads were pretty slippery. By the time I'd got round a few of the country roads and into Oakworth, it was raining heavily, but still at 0c, so ice became a problem in the heavy traffic. Made it through that, only to get stopped on the way out of Oxenhope by people coming the other way to advise me "some cars were stuck ahead". Decided to not worry too much about that (I was following a tractor if I'd got stuck anyway) so set off up the hill. At the top was a bit chaotic, as it was sort of single track through the snow, which was up to 3+ feet deep in places, but managed to wind my way through people trying to squeeze past each other and made it home without incident. :)

The natives of Suffolk are running around burning effigies hoping that that evil frozen water will go away. They threatened to close the major roads around here because there were reports of a few flakes of snow that didn't melt on contact with the ground.
