Some pics of my home in Shropshire - it's throwing it down again now.  I'd say we have has about 8 inches but its at least a foot deep on my lawn ans surrounding fields.

17cm of level snow. That's more than Dec 2010 or Dec 1995 managed. It's certainly the most round here since Feb 1991, possibly 1987. 4 years without any significant snow ends like this.!

this mornings drive out or a small bit of it.

not sure about bins? could be 23rd, when they are next due

They were parked up across from school earlier but not sure if they were brown or blue collection.  They will have to work a Saturday I guess.

You guys :D the forecast for these -10 to -12's are right out in the deep sticks in the very cold snow fields

Even when back in 2010 Pershore recorded -16 17s I believe ? the surrounding area of Brum only touch -9 or -10s

I'll be happy with -5 tonight

Anyway leave it to the experts......I'm sure somewhere will hit double digits :santa-emoji:

Not sure why it gives -12 for my specific postcode. Maybe over the nearby fields. I reckon -6 to -8 here.

 Currently overcast here great.

Snowy...

All the areas in the central Midlands who were expected to have very low temps are now expecting cloud (according to your map). Most of the mins are about -5C now. Who produced this fore-cast?.

I guess it is correct as it now has gone very 'hazy' here.

My temperature is currently -3.9C, here in a fairly central Solihull next to some 'open' land.

This happened earlier: that's our car, with a white van which had been trying to turn round and get out of our big shared car-park for over an hour. 

PILLOCK.

Took 8 or 9 of us pickaxing and shovelling the inches-thick compacted polished ice he'd created, not to mention manually shoving him uphill sideways because the entire car park is on a slope so when he tried to drive forwards, he just slid to the right downhill (and onto our car more than once - amazingly, no damage, thanks to over a foot of snow...)

WHY CAN'T PEOPLE LEARN TO DRIVE ON SNOW???? Or just not go off the gritted main roads?

This is the front of our car. He had literally only moved the snow off the front of it. You can see the depth where it's broken away vertically at left of picture. Lucky us, eh?
