Cheers. Last hurrah it is, then. On the plus side, the wife had to close her school and she took the kids sledging at Earlswood Common in the thick of it today - which means I can enjoy watching Fulham beat Derby in peace tomorrow!

Just a quickie Steve, is that us pretty much wrapped up now then? Only earlier I'm sure I saw a post from you saying the heaviest snow was coming between 3pm and 7pm? I assume it's all pushed through quicker than expected? I'm happy either way, it's Friday and I've cracked open an early beer, just wondering as the radar still looks full of life to me......I probably need to refresh the page 😂

Will be looking forward to going out in it tomorrow as I’ve been stuck in all week! 

Better not have melted by then!! 

Better to go out early before it all turns to horrible slush!

Temperature here getting close to zero now with just the odd flake. Make the most of it today, temperatures are already up to 5/6c in Guernsey/Jersey and Le Harve.

Nice that most places in the region saw some snow today, 3cm for me which is good total on the coast here.

Come on Spring :)

It's gone quiet outside, but there is one final blast coming up on the radar and then winter will be done.

It's been fun!

I’ve done so well! 5cm today of fresh new snow and still it falls, some drifts of over a foot a surreal moment is this a dream? Usually is for someone in inner London.

It's been a great week and we have had some good bants, pics, ups, downs, toys the lot. Such a shame that next week this place will have tumbleweed in it. Until the summer T-Storms...

It's been emotional folks, Southender signing off to enjoy the last proper snow day of the winter. :friends::sorry:
