Light snow just started with big fluffy flakes again :)

Temperatures rose to the dizzy heights of 0c here today, making it the 6th consecutive ice day but also the mildest day for a few days. Lowest maximum's for the spell occurred on the 28th Feb and 1st Mar with a maximum of -3c on both days. Most snow occurred on 28th Feb but depths were not that big here - around 5-10cm in total. Much more over the nearby Peak District.

Yes,  we're under that green area, but it's definitely falling as snow :)

Slightly to my surprise, it's still snowing! Very very light now, and radar suggests it'll stop any minute, but never mind. 2 cm of new cover this evening, and the temperature dead-on freezing. Some much more impressive radar echoes out east, though -- Peterborough looks to be getting hammered.

Getting a bit heavier. The non-stop wind is making it look like a mini blizzard again.

I just noticed that and looked out and still snowing had 6 to 7 inches in my back garden flat up to 14 inches drifted. Drove as far as great oakley today and walked back roads between oakley and geddington drifts as high as the hedges. Don't think you would be able to drive on that road untill a tractor clears it 4 x 4 were turning round.If you have Facebook a few people have shared a video near loddington drifts as high as 6ft.

Just been out for a walk round by the country footpaths near here by Clayhanger (I know it's late but I heard from a mate who had been down there earlier and I thought I just have to see, been as I've been at work all day today and will also be tomorrow. There's a narrow path there between two fields with a wire fence on one side and trees and hedges on the other and I tell you what I had to navigate the most impressive drifts I've yet witnessed in real life. A couple of them were nearly waste deep.  I also saw deer foraging in another field and they started trying to follow me, which kind of worried me a bit but they kept their distance. And its snowing heavy again now.The cold and snowy spell of late February/early March 2018 is definitely my new favourite yet, now. 

Haha, think I know where you mean, was over there this morning walking my dogs, was too deep for them so had to carry them!
