    A cold clear day, With everything still frozen. A few shots while out walking earlier. Temp 0.4c Dp -1.9c WC 0.2c

    METO should have followed the map 

    Great Longstone at 11.00am this morning pretty difficult journey, what with fog and blowing snow very tricky approx. 20 to 25cms   also plenty of vids from Beeley Moor most are at 250m to 350mtrs

    FizzJust got back in....Love this post. LOLPS I cannot get smilies up when replying to this post. Is it because its on a previous page?The other option is to move house to a place higher up!! Needn't tell hubby the real reason!!MIA

    The smilies are a mystery to me, because I'm always on my iPad, so I do a : and a ) to make a :). Sometimes I forget myself and do ; ) to create a wink, which comes out like this ;) - bizarrely!

    If I had my way, I'd move my house to half way up Snowdon, but I think Hubby might notice that, unfortunately!

    That's kind of what I did... I relocated my wife and kids back from sunny warm Spain to 1000ft up in the peak district.... some how I managed to get away with it...

    Ooh, Spain to the Peak District! Don't do things by halves do you?!

    Mind you, I love the Peaks, so I'd've forgiven you if it'd been me!

    Spent my childhood in London watching the rest of the UK get pasted with snow while I got nothing.... so when it was time to come back to the UK after Spain I did my research... I was checking ASL on every property we looked at. spent time looking into history of snow falls for the area etc... and low and behold here I am since 2009....

    Thanks for the reply fizz.

    I have no problem wit smilies when posting to a topict in the current page, but can never get it to work on old replies.

     

    I'll try :). in future. Dont fancy the grumpy old face much though. PS It did work here!!!

     

    Wasn't thinking of somewhere like Snowden. He might suspect something was going on!

     

    Try teasing him with some of the nice new houses on the side of the Lickeys!!.

    Ha, I absolutely love that story! A true weather nutcase (and I mean that in a complimentary way)  :crazy:

     

    When you guys were getting pasted on Boxing Day, I have to confess to spending some time admiring the various 'asl' readings for the Peak District - very, very envious. I even checked on property prices in Buxton!  :laugh:

    Sounds lovely - I might have to go and check those out! We're a bit location bound though because we run a karate school on Lode lane for around 250 students a week (teamblackbelt.com) who might be a bit miffed if we suddenly disappeared (not to mention it pays the mortgage of course!).

    Ah well, one day eh?

    oh yes im a nutcase for sure...... ;) ive always loved the snow from my earliest memories... the winters of the early 80's had me hooked and then from 87 onwards I just missed out time and time again apart from 91... oh my I was like a mad kid that feb as it happened on my birthday...I personally think that Rightmove and other good quality websites should have an ASL option for a property search.... I do think this up coming spell will see all of us Midlanders getting some action

    18z look marginal in the short term, but very hail mary in the long term. It won't come off, those long range synoptics so rarely do - but if it ever did, January 15 would be one to talk about. Personally, give me the snow and keep the 2 weeks of dry bitter cold..but that's just me. One to note, this weekend looks potentially snowier than it did a day or so ago. Couple of troughs and showers moving from north to south, some may see a few flakes.

    Reading these posts almost makes me smile as much as watching falling snow , less of a weather forum , more of a shared love of snow !! (Midlands snow appreciation society . Being at 500ft asl is ok but would also love to be over 1000ft asl , and in the Midlands we get chances of snow from all angles , next 10 days will be fun to say the least , checking the windows , lampposts and forum every 45 seconds , ( as the bemused other half looks on )

    Ahh winter , you just can't beat the exciting tingle of snow , good luck to all

    Very windy this evening in Dudley.  Gusting frequently 30 mph+ Mild temperatures, snow has fully melted now after rain this evening.  8.2C at the moment.  What a 24 hours it has turned out to be weather wise.  There will no doubt be some wind damage tomorrow.  I can hear a roar outside due to the wind.

    When reading the MOD thread and seeing how excited everyone is getting, it's often easy to forget that this isn't nailed on yet. I'm trying to keep myself calm until maybe Sunday as regards to a possible slider, by that time it might not even make it to Wales if things are pushed west so best to keep hopes down

    Stunning charts continue with GFS 18z
