    Showers are too light and if anything making the thaw quicker. Keeping an eye on the met forecast for snow tomorrow morning as winds turn direct easterly.

    Another heavy shower here. Radar looking really quite nice. Very conducive temps too. Just need the strong nearly-spring Sun to keep away.

    Snow now melted from earlier shower here. Despite being minus 2 currently the sun is just far too strong and warms the ground sufficiently before each shower that it won't hang around

    County Council have sent out internal email asking employees not to leave yet, there sending out snow plough teams on the main roads to Chesterfield :shok:

    Just driven home - 1/2 day at work :)

    Chaos out there! Had been snowing nonstop for a couple hours and in the wind it was proper blizzard conditions with visability really low.

    The minor prangs out there just about outweighed the amount of numpties driving like it was a summers day!

    Was great fun :) had my current car exactly 3 years and this is the 1st proper snow-drive. Handled great for a little punto :p

    Snow stopped the precise moment I pulled into the drive! 

    I don't envy my colleagues trying to get home this evening if these showers carry on...
