We don't get a lot of snow on the low areas here but if it comes the moors get it quite thick.

Bet its all or nothing where you are eh stoney!!

It can be clear nearer the coast and blowing a blizzard on Dartmoor.
Seeing as my patrols can take in the whole moorland area I tend to get all seasons in one day.
Just cold and drizzly at the moment thankfully.

[color=#0000ff][size=5][font=comic sans ms,cursive]No snow in London, just very damp. Back at my previous home in the countryside, (Hampshire) parents said it has cleared and it looks like rain is on the way. [/font][/size][/color]

Brigante
Everywhere wheres still white in nottingham too (apart from roads)

Was strange driving from birmingham where theres no snow then soon as i got near nottingham everything suddenly turned white.
Preee
Only had about an inch of snow which was gone by morning , it also rained and then froze , this froze my doors shut haha , took me 5 minutes to get inside the car , boy do i need a heated steering wheel haha.
martyntdci
haha, all our handles were frozen this morning, also door's etc.... started the car at -5, first turn of the key, instantly bang straight in, no hesitation or nothing..... but rear brakes were a little stuck on lol... everywhere except for road (obv) still white and frozen just like a ice ring
Preee
It was only -2 by me but the frozen rain caused my problem , and i had to scrap otherwise i would have been sat there for a while , but yes first turn of the key fired into life , next button was the heated seat haha
martyntdci

Stoney871
They're ok, they have fur coats. :)
If I get cold I'll just wrap them around me.
martyntdci
on way home from work today (left early due to weather) came across a focus, it turned a corner to fast and ended on 2 of those plastic yellow ballard things in the centre of the road (where you can walk) all the four wheels off the ground, quite funny, as the bloke who was driving was putting it in first and then reverse to try and get it off.... just wish i took a pic to show you all .....
jeebowhite
lol, wont it be an egg on face moment if that person was a member here ;)

Snowed quite heavy down here in bexhill/hastings. At first it wasnt laying but then eventually it did set quite thick. I had to drive in it briefly to get home which involves a couple of hills that were a bit dodgey to get up. The worst bit was when i nearly lost it into a parked car, i swear i literlly sh*t myself at that point lol
Lesson learned, shes staying parked until the snow clears.
Fastfordman
Woke up this morning to over 4 inches of snow in the night. There's 6+ inches on the ground here now. Looks like I am working from home again snow and the steep hills of Sheffield are a bad mix!
Stoney871
Snow on the moors still but nothing lower down.
-4c though so flamin' cold.
Fastfordman
