Drive down from cowgate towards Newcastle at 6am, and under the flyover just before the A1058 turn off, there were icicles about 3 foot long hanging from the flyover roof. Truly amazing sight!

Went to the Pennines in the end. Should have gone to Teesdale, but there wasn't time, so settled for Weardale. Couple of shots...  

Here you go... I ventured fully out. 27991638_1593131500722016_1995411088115499008_n.mp4

I thought today wasn't going to be as bad. It looks horrendous out there. It was actually the best day to get to work as no one is on the roads. 

Blizzard here. Not see anything like this.

In 2010 (and the winter before) there was much more snow here but little wind, so drifting problem were limited to the higher routes.
This time blowing snow and ground blizzard has been widespread to sea level, in fact the exposed coast has been as bad as anywhere.
A true blizzard is wind and snow together, while below freezing.

Wired I was expecting a few scattered showers today, it’s pretty much constant light snow plus the odd burst. I’d this in like this for the day? It’s not fit to be outside

Apparently nissan are sending out cars to pick lads up who have been unable to make it into work.  With no guarantee of the time they will be home at the end of shift.

Our biggest problem at the moment is drifting snow. In exposed parts it’s about a foot deep across roads and pavements. There’s a 2ft drift outside our front door, with 2ft icicles hanging above the back door. Brutally cold too.

Will today’s Amber warning be extended into Friday/Saturday? Going off the forecast for here it could be justified!

Is that storm there talking about down south going to reach here on Friday night? I've not seen any forecast that goes beyond that they seem to stop because its the SOUTH.

If it does then i cant see us not having an amber maybe red warning as the snow is just piling up.

The forecasts I’ve seen and heard reckon it won’t get here but the North Sea will still produce heavy persistent showers tomorrow and Saturday.
