    I wasn’t even supposed to be in Dorking today - I had to buy some new ski gloves as my mine have disappeared since my last trip to snowy North America last year!

    There is snow on Box Hill - not sure if there’s as much as Newlands Corner though.

    Ah, I am very happy the hills have had so much snow. Any other Saturday and I would be out there playing in it. This time I am off to Banff where they have a snow storm bringing 10-40cms! Will be interesting to see if we land in Calgary where scheduled to do so, or somewhere else in Canada instead.

    How’s Holmbury SM looking? Left Dorking just as it started settling earlier and have been stressing about packing for the -20 and below temps in the Canadian Rockies and having nowhere near enough space in my suitcase!

    Purely selfishly... no thanks 🙏. Tonight was fun and all and we have a goodish covering in Dorking but I have a plane to catch on Saturday. The snow lover in me... bring it on 😂

    Definitely popping up again here in Dorking. Will it fall a little heavier this time?

    Snow’s just about falling again here in Dorking. I think. You have to squint a bit to see it...

    Yes, stopped here. Hopefully just for now!

    We didn’t get much in Tuesday night - the ice was awful though and made for an interesting walk to work. Tomorrow morning should be fun if it doesn’t thaw quickly!

    Starting to settle on the pavements and roads. Not seen that in Dorking for a while...

    Yeah, we really did. I can confirm we have snow down here at 60m asl

    Snow in Dorking. I repeat snow in Dorking It’s not actually falling, just whirling around in the wind...

    Ah, you are just under five miles away (and over 100 metres up) from me - I hope you do well out of this!

    I am at 60m asl between Box Hill (224m) and Holmbury Hill (261m) in Dorking so often in a bit of a rain/snow shadow!

    I know it relatively well!

    So, I booked a trip to Canada and the States for early Feb so I would definitely see some snow/cold weather (and to see some family I guess). Last year I took off from Heathrow in Storm Emma. I posted through it on here as The plane was de-iced then the runway was closed and the plane was de-iced again. I fly out on Saturday and land in Calgary before travelling on to Banff where, come Sunday, I should expect a high of -23 and a wind chill of -30. I am actually quite worried about it and I think my adventure in the Rockies is going to end up being a few days spent in a hotel room 😂.

    Where abouts in Surrey are you? General area if you don’t want to disclose sensitive info 😉

    Ah, glad it paid off for you and glad I could help make sure it was not a wasted trip!

    More snow up on Box Hill than down here at 60 metres above sea level!

    SE and East Anglia general weather discussion 07/11/2018

    If I remember, I will walk to work the way that I can see Box Hill and let you know how it looks. Nothing was settling but it was about an hour ago now!

    Drove from Purley Way to Dorking about 7-7:30 (was there to buy some cheap warm gear for my trip to the Canadian Rockies on Saturday) and it was raining then very very heavily sleeting then snowing at the top of Pebble Hill. Driving down into town and it turned back to sleet but now it’s snow. I think the MetO will be spot on with their ice warning, there’s so much standing water out there - massive puddles on main roads. Be safe tomorrow folks.

    Absolutely stunning walk to work through Dorking this morning, although only just thawed out...
