  1. Moderate snow in Tunbridge Wells, easing off a little now but starting to settle - much more so than yesterday. I don't think at this rate that it is going be in any way disruptive though.
  2. That's unlucky! - We were in Crowborough earlier this evening, dropping my daughter off at the Army Cadet base, and there was a decent-ish covering, more than we've had here in Tunbridge Wells.
  3. Light to moderate snow for the last 20 minutes in Tunbridge Wells - just starting to settle on some surfaces. I cannot believe I am saying that in mid-March! We are supposed to be taking our daughters to Cadet Camp in Crowborough later today - do not relish driving in this.
  4. Some will survive, and those will be the strongest ones. Survival of the fittest!
  5. Yes, given that only a few weeks ago so many were bemoaning the fact that winter was over it's been pretty impressive, especially for March - I never want to hear it said again that late winter snowfall cannot deliver the goods! For some it has been awesome, most of us have seen several snowfalls - no complaints here. Hope everyone gets home safely tonight - see you all next November!
  6. In West Kent it's been snowing continuously, and sometimes heavily, for several hours.... wish I could send it your way as my husband is currently stuck on a train....
  7. Latest update from Southeastern Railway, for those forum members facing the Friday night commute: IMPORTANT UPDATE 15:45These routes are OPEN. If travelling on these: please go ASAP: Hastings Line / Ashf'd via Tonbdge Bexleyheath line Woolwich line Hayes line Victoria - Brom South ChX - Orpington Buses (@TfL & @ArrivaKent) & Tube accepting tickets
  8. Bexleyheath line now suspended too.... not looking good for the Friday evening rush hour if you are a Southeastern passenger. EDIT: sorry, that's trains from Bexleyheath to London - coming out of London the line is still open.
  9. Some of the heaviest snow we have had this week at present - very unexpected and lovely to see.
  10. Light to moderate snow now in Tunbridge Wells, settling immediately on pavements.
  11. Have just seen this on Southeastern's Twitter feed: SERVICE UPDATE 12:00 Do not attempt to travel across East Kent at the moment, a large amount of ice has built up affecting the power supply and we cannot run trains between Swanley & Ramsgate, Ashford & Ramsgate via Dover or Canterbury and Otford to Ashford #uksnow
  12. I know exactly what you mean, I have been forced to bake bread because our road is so lethal and the local shop hasn't had any deliveries....
  13. Light snow here in Tunbridge Wells, though looking at the radar I don't think it will be much.
  14. The South East is still under a yellow warning for snow for Thursday and Friday - think they are unsure exactly who is going to be in the firing line.
  15. Wow! - very unusual to see that intensity of snow falling in Central London - beautiful!
