    Squally blizzards in Derby city centre. Most excellent :')
  2. Agreed. Childish responses above. People don't half get silly on this world wide Web. Be nice. Be polite. Be respectful. Adults sulkily squabbling about a others interpretation of weather charts :-). Not a good look.
  3. Constant light/moderate snow in Derby. Siberian scenes outside. Windswept. Brutal cold. Magic
  4. Ignore last post. Weird typo. Well its a funny game this weather malarkey. After getting very little from the earlier amber warning this week, last night in Nottingham was a total shock. Blizzard conditions for hours really. Brilliant. Got on the bus to Derby this morning and about half as much but not too bad at all. And as I type its snowing again. Magic!
  5. "Everywhere else" nothe including Derby, Nottingham etc etc
  6. I genuinely don't give a monkeys about safety. Or the odd person slipping over and banging their head. Or the odd school being closed. Don't care. I do care about the drama of weather; the thrill of a blizzard; the joy of childrens sledging etc. Life is dangerous end of. The point of life is not to get through it without putting a plaster on. None of us are getting out of here alive. :-) Bring on the snow. Bring on the blizzards. Bring on the traffic chaooooooossssssss :-)
  7. Most snow of the year for Derby. Carnage on the roads and surrounding areas - especially any with altitude. In fact so much so, I had a car crash in Crich and wasn't the only one. Total carnage. Idiot!
  8. Light snow in Derby central. Will be off on a snow hunt shortly. :-)
  9. Are you on some kind of mountain in Leicester or something? :-) Rain here in derby.
  10. Good answer. Thanks.
  11. The rain bit doesn't seem to be too much of a problem :-). Heavy rain today. I don't have elevation here but neither do some of the other posters. And being further west and south of me sometimes I would have thought Derby would be more likely to be in the colder air. Doesn't seem to have been like that this winter anyway?
  12. Another massive upgrade for tomorrow. This time by the metoffice. Sleet largely disappeared. Looks a mostly heavy snow event now! We'll see.
  13. Just cold rain again in Derby today. As a newcomer to the area, I'm finding it increasingly perplexing how, all this winter, points west, and south of me are having snow and Derby isn't? (I get why points north and peak district do). Today for example, Stoke, Telford, Birmingham, Warwickshire and Leicester have snow. Derby - zilch. How so? Odd.
  14. That is a massive upgrade for tomorrow by the (admittedly well dodgy) netweather forecast. Mild air arriving much later. Pretty much anywhere around here other than Derby city centre (me!) would have solid heavy snow all day by the looks of that! Thoughts?
