Me and it's still coming down thick and fast here, flakes haven't got any bigger all day though, if they'd been a bit bigger we'd be buried by now.

Sometimes conditions can be too good if it was wet imagine!

I’m near the Somerset Levels and after fine powdery snow all day I also now have the ice crystals, and things generally seem a bit melty and drippy outside.

The weirdest thing is though that since it’s changed to this I’m getting black bits falling too, so my white snow is heavily speckled. I’ve had a look and it seems like little seeds or seed cases. Anyone else getting this? It’s out the front and back of my house.

Just did a lampost check and confirm we have slightly bigger snowflakes.

The edge of that snowfall must be near.

Hang on Karl! I'll just sneak past wifey for a quick curtain job!

Just been out for a smoke. All of the snow is rock hard! I don't know how much more freezing rain is supposed to fall? But, if it carries on and it's still like it by morning, it'll be chaos!

My new bush that i put in as a boarder between my drive and next doors which cost me £300 in bushes, look in deep doo doo’s!! As well as my matured palms, all bent over like they’ve been on the drink all day. ☹️

Snowpack the same, but Ice crust on top! Still soft underneath though. 

Next doors car won’t be getting used tomorrow, they came home about 30 mins before the ice started and it’s encased in solid ice. ? 

tommorw will be horrendous. 

The 4x4 that the ambulance service sent to pick my misses up to take her to work, never arrived, still waiting..... she’s given up and gone to sleep. I fee I should stay up and stand guard over my snow now ?
