    Right I’m snow tired (see what I did there!) I’m off to Bedfordshire. A look out the window tells me as it stands there is not enough snow to use adverse weather conditions as excuse for cancelling tomorrow mornings dental check up..☹️

    So this is it, the end of winter. Time to look forward to Spring..... Wait, what's this?        Apparently not. So for the time being, we will remain as one for this cold spell. Ple

    Bonkers. But the area of snow there has been hanging there around for hours.

    Yes, the local weather office is now expecting "well over 15cm" to fall by the morning in Guernsey and Alderney.

    That year was mental in the CI. Good friends live in Jersey. They were struglling home along a country lane after venturing out for supplies when a slight clang came from underfoot. It turned out to be the roof of a Range Rover that revealed itself a few days later.

    Still more snow than Horley, probably...

    You're enjoying this aren't you.

    Remember, as AS said, not a lot of people in Reigate; I might find you and deliver some Horley snow on a saucer :D

    Well, that is an underwhelming radar to say the least. I'm off. No doubt the internal body-clock will snap into gear at precisely 2am just in time to watch streamers drift north and south of here.

    Just measured the depth of snow here on the high ground in Tunbridge Wells, 6 cm so far.

    We are clearly getting very light continuous snow as there is a dusting on everything now - just enough to make the pavements nice and slippy in the morning. It's time for sleep, let's hope there's a few good showers in the small hours.

    Didn't you say you'd been sitting under pink blobs [formerly a typo "boobs"] for hours...

    Heavier snow shower in Hastings, turning the roads white once more. Just a dusting of snow in general, but I do have a two foot inch drift on my window ledge! :yahoo:
    Around an inch of snow back at home in Hawkhurst.
