  1. 3.9c dew point 3c here. Has dropped off quite quickly now its dark.
  2. http://www.trafficengland.com/#map-menu-traffic-information - Useful if you want to see where the snow line is... enable the traffic cams and you can click away to your hearts content! Swindon looking pretty good, which seems to fit well with the current radar.
  3. That 384 chart is almost as ridiculous as me meeting a fellow Netweather cold hunter on the train back from Derby in February. If we manage to get close to that then happy New Year!
  4. Mine has gone again, my Dad is coming down with a bigger ladder as the block is clearly further up what a pain!
  5. A combination of warm water from a watering can and then a second go with a hair dryer, I had to climb a ladder, which in this weather wasn't a particularly great thing to have to do! I'm keeping a close eye on it though, I'm not 100% confident the block is gone.
  6. So did we. Boiler in the loft meant a somewhat tricky job to defrost the condensate pipe. Heating has now been on successfully for 2 hours, I just hope the bloody thing doesn't stop again!
  7. Epic! Congrats really happy to see some getting loads of snow! In-laws in Crowborough have sent us some pics as well, they have loads. Here in Godstone I reckon a couple of cm, everything looks pretty but not really enough to take the kids sledging. I'm pinning my hopes on the end of the week. So far this has been a pretty good week for the SE, especially when compared to previous years.
  8. About 1cm here in Godstone. Sun now out. Excited about what may come later though! Spoke with my folks in Tatsfield and they have substantially more, its always a sweet spot for snow!
  9. I’m sitting outside having a fire, something so thearputic about being outside in the cold warmed by a fire!!
  10. My Folks still live down Paynesfield Road Thats where I lived for the 1st 24 years of my life. The wife and I are actually looking at moving back, the snow being one big part of the attraction for me, oh and baby sitters nearby
  11. Living at the base of the North Downs I'm hoping for a brutal snow day so I can go out and 'Hike' up to the top. My folks live in Tatsfield so I can stop in there for a warm up before heading out again.
  12. We've got our delivery coming Saturday evening. I think the wife thought I was mad, the she saw the warnings this morning
  13. Tatsfield is the place to be, I lived there for 25 years and it never failed to amaze me how much more snow we got that the surrounding area. They even have a nice restaurant / B&B (The Bakery) where you can stay
  14. 4 sets of ENS, look at all the volatility, no one can be sure at this point! 18Z Last Night... 0Z this morning... 6Z... And finally the 12Z
  15. I think the missing data part could actually be a factor here, I'm assuming that some of it's 'shared' and perhaps, just perhaps ECM decided to wait vs the other models running with what they had. Given the unique state of the atmosphere it 'makes sense'. Oh and I think its written in the stars... I was on a train back from Derby last night and happily browsing the forum when I looked left and noticed the chap next to me doing the same, what are the chances of 2 weather geeks sitting next to each other on the same random train? We had a little laugh and chat about how this is all going tits up and then boom I check the ECM on my next train and we're back in the game.
  16. Biggin Hill is at a standstill! https://m.facebook.com/groups/321110434672269?view=permalink&id=1159416404174997&ref=bookmarks
