Could we be any more Welsh/ British? Desperate for snow of any kind, then when we get a storm, it's not the right kind of snow. :D Fingers crossed the flakes get bigger later, but if not, I'm sure the intensity will make up for it! Plenty more opportunities through Sunday too!

Well, we had a few flakes blowing in the wind for most of the afternoon - I thought it was just Andy's leftovers TBH - but suddenly it's turned into a heavy fall of fine snow crystals which are travelling horizontally in the wind.  It's blowing straight off flat surfaces like the roof, but collecting in all the recesses where you just know drifts could form if the snow was heavier, for longer.  Funny thing is, this snow is not even registering on the radar yet - it must be even heavier stuff that's shown as approaching from the south over Swansea!!  If the heavier stuff can reach us then I believe it will be game on for an exciting night of snow fall and - who knows what we'll find in the morning??   :yahoo:

Looking at the radar and what's still to come, I think even the 'dry circle' might get pasted.

Perhaps we can avoid a civil war with our friends in the east, after all. :friends:

well I went to see Dai the Grit and got me salt - no questions asked lol - but in the mean time the HUSKY Gracie made a run for it and ran like lightning through the fields up here - so I took the lead with me hoping to get her back after doing my black market deal with Dai The Grit. So I'm approaching the gate to get back home and two dog walkers think they've seen the husky running around in the field next to our bungalow - so they stress me out and try to get me motivated to move my ass to get her back on the lead - well the heavy bucket of Grit from Dai (ssssssssssh) I tried to put on top of this snow drift - but I moved just a little too quickly - cause you should all have been there with your video cameras and cleaned up to the tune of £250 from "You've been Framed" cause I slipped in the snow and went down like a sack of s**t - right into a soft snow drift luckily - but it was a bit of a shock to be 6ft 1 for one miniute and down at ground level the next lol - but I picked myself up via the garden lamp my dad gave me - bless his soul and carried on - the dog is back home now - probably because she got hungry lol and Liza is now cooking some delicious Lamb - but before I can rest I gotta dig the snow off our front path and throw some grit down (that I got from the black market via Dai The Grit)

So one hour into the death zone .

Hmmm .

Hardly a death zone here in Swansea but so far I’d say us westerners have taken a surprise early lead .

Its like 3 minutes into the game and the non league side has taken the lead against premiership opposition .

Could there be a shock on the cards ?

Last hour here has been swirling snow and howling wind, difficult to tell what is fresh snow and what wind driven but would hate to be out driving in this. And this is only in yellow warning snow area.  Hope all you in amber and red keep safe!

At this rate it would take a few weeks to get a few inches .

Very early days but the death zone warning looks just a tad OTT at the moment ...

” take action “ ? 

At the moment that action is put the kettle on nothing to see just yet .

Fine light snow in west Cardiff for the last hour but starting to pick up a bit now - bigger flakes. more of them and blowing around in the wind. This is the beginning of the event for us I think :cold:

Still snizzling here.

It's fascinating watching the dry snow being swirled around by the wind and leaving circles or semi-circles of slightly thicker snow on my driveway. :)

Heavy snow in Tenby. Really blowing in the strengthening wind...

What’s the technical definition of a blizzard? Reckon we can’t be far off.

It's showing -3.3c on the outside and the snow is coming in horizontally.  I can see the birds still eating all the seeds and mealworms we put out earlier but they don't look happy.  Hope they can find some shelter later on.  We keep breaking the ice on the water bowls but it must be almost impossible for small birds and animals to find food and stay alive in these conditions. Even the sheep are huddled together under a tree looking very forlorn, but at least they've got woolly coats better than my duvet!  Wondering how long this snow wil carry on for, now.  If it goes on all night I'll not be going anywhere tomorrow.....

Between 15:00 and 17:00 ...to me it seems the heaviest precip is further west.

The main precipitation isn't due for a few hours yet, these bouts of snizzle are but tiny tasters of what some people will eventually get.
