How's the Snow with you?

Post by welshandy » Sun Dec 10, 2017 9:59 am

It's pretty bad here in Mid Wales, already 3 inches of Snow. Temperature tonight forecast to drop to -14!!!!. Our Road has not been gritted/ploughed & the odd Car that is out is taking it very carefully apart from an Idiot on a Quad bike(Farm worker) went flying past our House in the middle of the Road. Just hope he doesn't meet anything ie Children walking to the local hill to go Sledging!

Hardly any in my part of Cambridgeshire when I got up this morning but a very nice covering now with a good couple of inches and still chucking it down. The sky has gone from dark grey to light grey and might go out with my camera later on.

About 3 inches here. Roads ok, staying in with a brew.

Believe the Lincoln Market has been cancelled for today, due to the weather.

Coming down thick and fast in Chippenham, starting to settle now as well.

Occasional few bits in the air in Grimsby. Nothing on dry pavement. Maybe too far north, and we dont say that often!

Started with heavy rain at 7am this morning in Colchester, but it had turned to heavy snow by 9am with 2-3 ins now settled on the ground.
Its all slushy though and melting away, so I think it will have completely cleared away by tomorrow.
