We have about half the amount that Pulliptears has, enough to play in but not enough to cause problems. More forecast for us too.

We had tons of snow in Surrey yesterday morning which was very pretty buy caused havoc with my plans for getting home to Manchester for the weekend. My flight was cancelled so I had to do the journey from hell (walk, train, tube, train, taxi) to get home. Train from Euston to Wigan was packed to the rafters so I couldn't get a seat the whole way. I sat on the floor, freezing cold, for most of the journey. I'm kind of hoping I'll be snowed in on Monday so I can stay at home Wink

Warm up!!??
We've had another couple of inches overnight, helpfully the local council hasn't been able to keep up and local roads are utter chaos, most remain ungritted. I've heard from friends this morning it's taking an hour to travel a mile and one friend reported seeing a box van come down one of the hills by her home sideways.
Almost every school in Stoke in closed and it's still snowing heavily with it forecasted to get heavier still by lunchtime.

It was fun for a bit, now I could really do with it buggering off.

Well we had constant snow from 11am until 10pm last night. The main roads are fine, just the back roads.

According to our weather for Suffolk we aren't due anymore snow thank goodness!

Blimey Pulliptears, sounds horrible. It snowed all day here in Dover, but only accumilated to about 4 inches. It's started to thaw a bit already and we have sleet/rain forecast for today so it'll probably start washing away too. Out temps are due to rise so it may be back to school for everyone tomorrow. I hope you get some rain, warmth or both. (I see global warming has been rebranded as climate change......)

I'm packing a case and heading your way Wink

My bin is still at the end of my drive from last week, I've had no post since Thursday. Our local forecast isn't changing much over the next couple of days so we could be stuck for a while. The schools are saying the sites are unsafe due to ice, the problem we have is people cleared all the snow and the roads over the weekend, this few inches we have had overnight has recoated and frozen solid so everywhere that had previously been cleared is now like an ice rink with roads lethal.

Oh well, didn't have anywhere I needed to go this week anyway Embarassed

We've got no snow here at the moment although it has been very cold. At our other house in Surrey it's a very different story though - my neighbour said it snowed all day yesterday!! affraid

Some of my local schools have already posted as closed tomorrow, not sure if DD's will be open, but as she's only in for an hour anyway I'm fairly sure I won't be attempting our bank to take her. Not worth it.

Lightly snowing again. Hopefully it won't settle. OH dug my car out of the car park but tbh I enjoyed walking today so may do the same tomorrow anyway.

Back to the car and gym Wednesday though as at MIL for tea Wednesday night. No more snow forecast thank god.

We had so much snow Sad It took me an extra 20 minutes to walk to work today because everything was so slippery (and I'm very cautious lol). Ugh, please make it go away now!

It's been snowing here again for the last couple of hours but it's too wet for it to settle. There's a nasty whiff of French gas in the air too.........! Shocked

Heard my area is due more snow, crossing my fingers tightly it isn't true.
Did not enjoy my drive home today at all, felt weird and a bit scary.

The fat lady is singing in Dover! All melting away nicely, it's slusharama. The temperature is rising - I was actually quite warm on the usually Arctic school run today and made a mental note to shed one of my 6 layers tomorrow. No more forecast for us in the near future!
