  1. Hmmm, a fast thaw would raise the chances of flooding - let's hope the temperatures are low enough to give a slow thaw
  2. One of my cats just demanded to go out...he got two steps out on the packed bit outside the door, took a step on the soft stuff and turned straight round!!! No snow here for the past 90 minutes or more....waiting for the next bit predicted by nw radar....
  3. I thought there might be something like that about selling it. Didn't realise it extended to giving it away. I thought I heard of a farm that had some sort of fridge outside where people could come and take raw milk, at their own risk, and in their own containers. I can't remember all the details but it got round the letter of the law....probably been stopped by now though, it was several years ago. I hope the lorry gets to you in the morning....
  4. Anyone listening to The Now Show? Apparently the forecasters were warning of snowmageddon all last week. First I heard was Tuesday this week....<shrug> that might just be that Radios 4, Wales and Bristol weren't panicking!! Does dim teledu gyda fi / I don't have a tv...
  5. And the 10 day forecast has changed from no snow in /brum next week to 40% ish Wed and Thurs. Bother...I'm supposed to be working up there next week!
  6. Here too - the laurels (it's a shrubbery! Ni!) are holding snow on their leavesI hope the bids find somewhere to hunker down...I have an untidy garden so there are places they can get out of the snow.
  7. Please tell me you're not sleeping in your van....
  8. How about making a bobble hat shaped cake and ...sorry... icing it?
  9. No way you can sell/give it to anyone locally?....or are you as unable to get out as the milk lorry to get in? Doesn't help the bank balance, but less of a waste. Alternatively, put it outside and make milk ice lollies Sorry, I know it's not a laughing situation.
  10. Just seen the wren outside, so dug around the cupboards and found some sultanas and linseed. Hope she, and the others are brave enough to come back before the bits are all buried....
  11. Looks like the place was built to cope, with that staircase to the upper storey. Hope you and the animals are safe.
  12. Stay safe...it looks like that patch ain't moving for a while.
  13. Thank you - I appreciate the help. It seems to be reasonably accurate here - we've gone from steady fall of big flakes to very fine stuff at 1500 as the "no ppn" hole heads to us on the 1450 chart.
  14. Properly snowing in Newport too...larger flakes plus some grains blown off the roof. At least another inch down. My neighbour was clearing the road and pavement outside his with a rake....so I popped out to lend him my snow shovel and he cleared my drive entrance too! All that's covered over again.
  15. Here in Newport too - and some gustyt winds. According to nw radar, we're only in he dark blue - what's it like under the green/yellow?
  16. Wow - last time I looked - about the time you posted - Penarth had clear skies according to the radar. Newport managed another 2" overnight, plus ice patches on my drive (nearly measured my length) I have icicles hanging from my cornices...one has grown about 6" in the last 2 hours...must photograph it. [long pause for lunch and photo session] It's nearly 600mm long! Just had a thrush and two robins fly into the garden. I've no food for them...seems wrong to attract birds to the garden when I have 6 cats and next door has 5.
  17. Radar has taken Newport from pale to dark blue - and snow has restarted, heavy and swirling. Icicle has stopped dripping....
  18. At least they'll have somewhere to go when the sea-ice melts....lock up your cats and dogs!
  19. North of the M4 I got 7" level in sheltered back garden, out front the wind has sculpted from 0 to 3ft drifts. There has been some ground melt on my very sheltered drive - huge lump of ice under the snow. It is also sculpted Just heard an eJet from Alicante has landed at Bristol Airport but "nothing moving in Wales" on R4
  20. My cats won't go out (they're not daft) and I got what I asked for drifts deep enough to throw a cat in! Mwhahaha. Windy and on/off powder snow here in north Newport - radar says no more....<sob>
  21. Wow - last time I looked - about the time you posted - Penarth had clear skies according to the radar. Newport managed another 2" overnight, plus ice patches on my drive (nearly measured my length) I have icicles hanging from my cornices...one has grown about 6" in the last 2 hours...must photograph it.
  22. Back in - less of a walk than a quick pop outside. My nice sheltered back garden is very deceiving - it's blowin' a hoolie out there and we have 3 ft drifts in some places - amazing wind sculptures. There's a dipole shape of clear road next to 3" drift topping the kerb. The sculpture on top of my car is impressive. Sitting with back door open and cats debating on venturing out! I think discretion will win. Lots of snow, a little bigger than earlier but still quite dry. The creaking as the snow slides slowly down the roof is peculiar - like sitting under a glacier - in miniature.
  23. What's falling are the cornices...and I can see the pressure lines in the snow further up the roof. Cats declining to go out!
