    Perhaps my compass is off but, why so many drifts on the west side of walls in an easterly? All the monster drifts in Ogmore are on the other side of the wall than you would expect? 

    Because the wind was so strong it blown the drifts away.

    I was wondering the same thing. Huge drifts here but on the west facing/sheltered sides of roads and lanes.

    Yeah, seems reasonable. It's unexpected given the massive wind speeds, you'd expect the wind to force the snow over the obstacle at such speed it wouldn't have a chance to drop. I suspect some sort of vortex effect. It was remarkable, driving around today at just how many places exhibited it. Even on our street, which faces East, the snow came up, to the end of the cul de sac then settled on my neighbours drive opposite (his house faces South, so the walls are East and West) squarely up against the West facing wall.

    I'm shattered! Day of helping digging out the street, then digging out the car and to top it all off, a pipe has burst in my mothers sending torrents through her ceiling. Thankfully her next door neighbour helped as my mam didn't have the strength to top turn the stopcock off and I couldn't get to her as still snowed in despite earlier efforts and plumbers and housing association were a complete no go! Downside to the weather and being a "grown up". I love snow but as far as I'm concerned Spring needs to spring lol! Have to say, the local community has been absolutely amazing... People with 4x4s taking nurses etc to work and farmers using their tractors to help dig streets out. We whinge about Tredegar but when the chips are down, everyone pulls together x

    No No No from an avid cold and snow lover the past week has been amazing but there is a time and a place for all that, so come on Elsa, let it go. (hum tune in head). Roll on warm spring and hot summer but with sun at minimum cycle lets have an awesome winter NEXT YEAR !
