    My journey from Bacup to Bury was interesting.  When I left Bacup it was absolutely chucking it down, 50p sized flakes which were filling up all the footprints from earlier this morning, this continued all the way to Rawtenstall where it was settling quite happily on the roads and the gritters were doing their best.

    This continued until Edenfield where it virtually stopped, in Bury there is very little, it has been snowing since I arrived but not really achieved anything.

    Hope its still there when I get home.

    Really pleased for all who've had snow. Sadly there's none here but one day it'll happen BIG time and it'll be all the more magical when it does :-)

    You must have some altitude, how much has fallen?, any big drifts?, thinking of going high up to investigate later.

    It's been snowing since about 8am here but it's more slushy and easily slushed down by cars and people traffic outside so not going to get any great depths here.  Higher up on the hilly routes though already reports coming in for hazardous driving conditions.  M62 summit, ripponden road etc..

    All very slushy looking now, temps & dp just fractionally on the wrong side of marginal from now on I think...
