If you've got a window seat that's to the rear of the wings you'll see them doing your wing, at least until the hot fluid runs down over your window..!!

One runway closed for de-icing. Watched the de-icing and will have to do so again as the ‘window’ of it being useful is about to close! Drama...

Seems to be stopping in Croydon now. Had hoped it’d stick around a bit longer. 

Right, Winter 18/19 you better pick this back up when you return.

In West Kent it's been snowing continuously, and sometimes heavily, for several hours.... wish I could send it your way as my husband is currently stuck on a train....

It’s pouring with snow here now especially when about 10/15mins ago it had stopped.

Those north of London are lucky under that heavier and continuous band of snow. For the rest of us, mainly light and patchy snow which will continue to fragment.

Was nice to see a proper ‘beast from the east’.

Please pay us a visit again next Winter, but don’t feel you have to leave so quickly!

It is lovely coming back to our reliably snowy corner... and slipping into old radar watching routines... Remembered today that we got snowed in in 2005 on exactly the same day, March 2nd, by that surprise snow event. Again we hit the jackpot and ended with 7 inches and I didn't make it to school in Tonbridge for two days (was in last year at the time).

Problem was that there was next to nothing in Tonbridge (20 mins drive away), so my explanations were met with some raised eyebrows a couple of days later...

Don't know if you saw the photos I posted last night. If not, here are a couple again, taken earlier this week:

Had the same light flurries in Southend....it seems to break up around this area, and then intensify again!

Still, we've had well over a foot of snow fall throughout the week, and still have 3-4in laying, so we've done fairly well I reckon!!!

Have had a good few hours of heavy snow here near Aldershot, so not done bad today.
