  1. Heavy and very beautiful big feathery flakes now here in Tunbridge Wells! - most unexpected. The heaviest snow we have had this year! And of course it would be the one day we need to drive in it (essential appointment).....
  2. We have had a couple of flurries of snow here in Tunbridge Wells. Normally I would be excited about this, but my daughter is having her 18th birthday party today - in the garden, of course, with the correct number of friends - postponed from March when of course no friends were allowed but 'Never mind,' we told ourselves, 'we'll have it in April instead, at least it will be warmer then.....' - it is Arctic out there!
  3. Here we go again in Tunbridge Wells..... it won't be Snowmageddon, but it's always lovely to see it.
  4. Really heavy bursts of snow here now! - big feathery flakes. Most unexpected!
  5. Everything is frozen solid here still - we are on the top of a hill and snow/ice always linger for days after everyone else has lost theirs. Good luck for today!
  6. Let's hope so - the depths haven't exactly inspired a great deal of awe so far! - though it's lovely to see snow falling.
  7. It is absolutely lethal out there! - not sure of the temperature, but it sure feels colder than it has done since this spell of weather started. There's very little thaw here, although the sun is shining. I appreciate that the Sheba must be delivered come what may, but take care!
  8. This is indeed a very strange snow event, not sure I can remember anything quite like it in terms of longevity of incredibly light snow. It's a bit like lockdown, I guess - it goes on, and on, and on, but nothing seems to change much...... but at least this morning we do have all surfaces covered and it's looking properly wintry out there. And still snowing! - didn't expect that.
  9. The Met Office forecast is being extremely bullish for the Amber warning area and indeed for an area extending outside it - am a lot more optimistic than I was an hour ago!
  10. Starting to settle very slowly on some surfaces..... I guess if it does keep up all day and into tomorrow, as the MetO is still optimistically suggesting for this location, we may end up with a couple of centimetres.
  11. Well, it's not everything I hoped it would be. Yet. But at least it's snow.
  12. Am loving the use of the word 'will' rather than the usual 'may'! - the MetO tend to do that only when there is a pretty high degree of certainty.
