Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow


Recommended Posts

Given today's temperatures, aren't we due a Daily Express "Snowmageddon" front page soon?

The snow is absolutely piling on us here in north Leeds this morning. I love the way it seems to muffle all sounds outside.

Anyway, I'm off to the park to walk the hound and watch him jump around in the snow like a crazy puppy....

Think it's made my neighbour go mad (well madder) too. He's just cleared the drive and the full width of the road in front of his house piling all the snow onto the footpaths. They are now completely impassable without ropes and an ice axe...

That would be what we would call a 'light dusting' of snow over here.

It's a bit strange you should only get all this now. Down in South Cheshire and the Midlands the last of last week's snow has finally been rained away. Yesterday evening was positively balmy at 8 degrees.

Chucking it down here for the 2nd day running, good job it's not a flood plain, plus, that it's not snowing.

If it was a flood plain, I expect they would have built houses on it by now!

Just got back inside

Glad to hear you're okay KM, it feels odd to be without TWP to follow, as well as for annoying all the right people but stay safe and well.

Please PM me if I have told this story before...

I was heading back from the Outland (Yorkshire), and they closed the M62 due to heavy snow, when we (My Brother & I) were on our way back from Wakefield, various diversions put us on the A62, due to snow, and then I lost control, slid down a hill, into a valley, through a gate, into a farm. We hit a snow drift, hit a tree, and all the snow fell of the tree and covered us with snow.

We thought we were going to die of frostbite, then I remembered the first aid kit I had been building up from the hospital I was training at, just in case of an accident, nothing to do with the RL Club I was playing for in 1984, including "Space Blankets".

Me and my brother settled down for the night, knowing our Mother would be on the phone to Search & Rescue, if not her, my Dad, who worked on the North Yorks. Cave Rescue Team in the 1950's. Neither of them.

It was only when we didn't come down for breakfast that they got worried.

11am, we got a bang on the drivers window, in an accent I only understood with subtitles, he asked me "What the F*** ar thee duin thure?"

I said we crashed in the snow, "Aye", he said, and walked off, I called for help, he turned and said something about a Tractor. 

15 minutes later we were back on the main A62 to Manchester. We stopped at a cafe for sustenance, and got such a whupping for doing so when we related the story to our Mum for not phoning from the Cafe, even reverse call.

Barely perceptible flakes of snow here in North London - hold the front pages of all the national papers!

Actually settling now - the back yard looks almost picturesque, which is quite an achievement.

About 4" of snow has settled here in the village, not sure if it's near enough to London for 'horror of snow and ice' stories in the press though.

all the same go to the nearest shop- panic buy up all the kendall mintcake - move all your furniture upstairs and demand the regional news station come round to interview you so you can blame the government

And if the Mountain rescue come round don't forget to tell them that you paid last year.
