We've got it again, but at the moment it's not quite as bad as earlier this week. 

On an alarming note, the council says it's running out of grit and 'doesn't know when the next supplies will be in'... Shocked
Only saw one gritting lorry out this morning going along the A45 & that was out of grit !!
Afore I got to the A45 though I did my first ever 360 degree skid going into an island turn, the lorry driver behind looked as scared as I felt  Grin. I feel a sickie coming on  Wink

I am seriously disappointed, the news reports "the whole UK grinding to a halt" yet here in North West England it looks more like sugar frosting from a doughnut.
We had more snow and worse (better) weather a fourtnight ago!
I am currently looking out of the window at brilliant sunshine and drove back from the school run in just a "T"shirt (and trousers/shoes etc but no need for a jumper or coat)

It's melting in Cannock but not where I live (blasted hill...)  So long as it is gone by Monday I'll be happy.  I don't want to be made late for an interview by an inch of mush.

We had lots of snow in Pontypool/Cwmbran.
I wasn't expecting any and was most surprised to see some (lit: 4 inches and counting)when I looked outside around half an hour after I woke up.
The car wouldn't start so I had to walk to work in the snow. Very fun and a practical use for my goggles!

I was a bit disappointed here in Robin Hood Land, we've had nowhere near as much snow as those soft southern gits  Wink

And I LIKE snow, makes a great scrunchy noise when you're the first to stomp through it LOL

if you like snow that much, I'll send some over the pond to you.  We've got about four feet still on the ground after probably a foot of melt, and we're still in for more.

I'm really enjoying the pretty snow pictures.  Please post more. Smiley

And yes, being the first to walk through snow and hearing the scrunchy noise it makes is really fun.

My condolences to those in Oz.  That is way too hot!

if it makes others feel better let me assure you it sounds devine where you all are. Can't tell you how unpleasant it is to come out of work into negative seven degree F wind chills the last few days. Seariously I'd rather stay home on the days where spit freezes on a fingertip in less then a second.

Snow, snow, snow. Endless amounts of white, frosty beauty. Ridiculously pretty, though somewhat cold when it reaches your knees straight-out-of-the house. Had to change trousers three times yesterday, and most of the traffic is nigh on dying.

This is Norway, this is Oslo, and we don't have such a thing as "Snow-days".

But I'm not one to complain, might take some comparison-shots soon.

Went for a drive down the M3 into Hampshire yesterday, pulled off at random and found a lovly little hill-top village called Dummer- absolutely beautiful, a real Christmas card, snow covered dream, glinting in the sunlight!

Forgot to take pictures, though.
