During the cold spell during late November/early December we had 30cm for around 7 days in a row. This was the deepest snow I have ever witnessed, beating the 25cm of snow I saw back in Wakefield during new years eve 1997

45cm at the end of last December, in 2009/10 I had 28cm, whilst in 2008/09 I had just 14cm as the far NE only got 1 day of snow showers.

Last December I attempted to visit relatives at Longhorsely where there was around 70-80cm, but only made it past Morpeth and had to turn back as the road was completely blocked, 3 days after the last major snowfall.

45cm at the end of last December, in 2009/10 I had 28cm, whilst in 2008/09 I had just 14cm as the far NE only got 1 day of snow showers.

Last December I attempted to visit relatives at Longhorsely where there was around 70-80cm, but only made it past Morpeth and had to turn back as the road was completely blocked, 3 days after the last major snowfall.

Last December was too good to be true up here in Tyne + Wear:

The first fall on 24th November, good few cm's on the ground by morning, magical feeling

That great big finger that deposited absolutely loads on the 26th (27th?) night-time, I remember it beginning here at 9pm and getting something like 15cm of it, it was crazy big snow, massive flakes

Thundersnow of 29th (30th), I remember that clearly, it was a beautiful day full of snowfall and then at night I recall looking frantically to see if school was going to be closed the following day, and then I saw the snow begin, it was shockingly frantic, and then the thunder of the night aswell, best event by far

I remember a very heavy fall inbetween this period (1st December I think) as I was at school and by about 1:30 it began hammering it in time, just in time for the evil scouse physics lesson (made it bearable for once!), really heavy snow

But the highlight of the spell was the 3rd of December, a Friday morning, I was off school due to snow, and here in Picktree, 8 miles from the coast we fell to a record low, bone shattering -12.2C, which for being at the verge of the coast is fantastic, and the little matter of 42cm of snow on the ground - crystal blue skies, immense

And then on the 16th I remember the temperature falling from 7C to 1C in 15 minutes and suddenly it started to hammer it down with more snow, I remember a few other glances of snow between this day and xmas day, but here is a stat one shouldn't forget, parts of County Durham had Ice Days from the 17th of December till the 26th. Durham Observatory fell to -10.4C on the 21st and recorded various -5C lows aswell, we had a couple inches of snow on the ground on the day itself, one where high pressure and a slight nnw breeze sheltered us from snow, but I think I got a small shower in the morning

Oh yeah, and it was the coldest christmas day recorded in many, many years here, I will never forget when some first snowflakes fell on the evening of the 24th November, and no one will ever forget what came after...
