  1. If the BBC app was right we wouldn’t even have seen any snow falling from the sky let alone settling
  2. STeady light snow falling now. Only settling where there is already snow cover
  3. Sun has gone in and it has stopped melting. Feels pretty bitter now. Felt quite nice when I left my house. Just seen a car whizz up the lane and come to a swift stop as it hit the snow drift.
  4. They often miss the impact that the severe weather will have on Pennines regions. Without a weather warning people come out sightseeing! Anyway, the local police have just tweeted about the difficult road condions IMPASSABLE A6 Disley to New Mills Styal Road, Styal Roe Street Macc Jordangate Macc VERY DIFFICULT A34 Wilmslow London Road Alderley Edge B5087 Alderley Edge to Macc A536 Macc to Congleton A523 Poynton Chester Road Poynton A523 Bosley to Leek B5470 Macc to Kettleshulme some of these roads are now blocked and many are low level routes that have not have not seen a snow plough since 1963!
  5. Very difficult isn’t it. Last time none of the areas that got the most severe snow in this region were under an amber inc. Buxton! At least this time East Cheshire was included in an amber and rightly so.
  6. Both northwest 4x4 response and peak 4x4 response are evidently in East Cheshire helping get people in today. Certainly doing a lot better than Cheshire Council!
  7. Cheshire and Derbyshire Police have said there is no safe route between the counties. Cheshire say if you try it and get stuck you’re on your own because they cant get close to you to rescue you.
  8. Pleased to tell you I’ve just looked out and this is definitely a major event now!
  9. The Met Office app has been pretty consistent in forecasting me heavy snow from 11 - 4am. Until now, it has changed to dry. Oh well. We have pretty good covering. Will see what happens
  10. Fine here now. The snow has been steady but never really heavy. Roads getting pretty bad though
  11. Yes. Only about three inches so far but drifts up to 2 foot.
  12. Rainow this evening. Less than a mile up the road. Quite a few cars driving stupidly fast pasr my house and then getting stuck!
