    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!

    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

    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:

    Great top up of snow. Added another 2-3cms here in north London. 

    Still snowing lightly.

    Yes, given that only a few weeks ago so many were bemoaning the fact that winter was over it's been pretty impressive, especially for March - I never want to hear it said again that late winter snowfall cannot deliver the goods! For some it has been awesome, most of us have seen several snowfalls - no complaints here. Hope everyone gets home safely tonight - see you all next November!

    Well, as it seems it's all done for me down here, it's probably an appropriate time to reflect on a memorable week for the region. Yes, I've not done anything like as well as some others but I've seen decent, settling snow for the first time since March 13, so can't complain. The extreme cold will be the most memorable thing for me, particularly Wednesday and Thursday. I'm sure we've all seen enough to ensure we'll be back at the beginning of November to start off on another adventure!

    I'd like to thank everyone, without exception, for making this forum such a fun place to spend time in. Special thanks to Steve M for all the invaluable updates and for having the patience to deal with all of us asking "is it going to snow in xxxxx?". 

    Just a final thought, although there's been a few disappointments, I find it oddly reassuring that we humans still can't be exactly sure how it's going to pan out, even just a few hours before "an event". Let's face it, it would become boring if we knew with 100% certainty it was going to snow at 11.10am in 4 weeks time.

    That was awesome!   Finishing up now but great last hour of snowball fights and sledging with the kids!   Just what the Dr ordered. 

    Must remember to change my tag line below after this week!

    Have a feeling we’re going to be sick of cold and snow by the time March is out

    It's still lightly snowing here. The snow I saw on Tuesday was out of this world. I have never sen it snow like that in my life. Didn't quite meet the totals of 2010, but very pleased with the offerings. Just wish it had cleared up a bit today so I could have seen my boyfriend, but will have to wait until next weekend now (goes away on business again on Monday).

     

    I have some great pictures and a short video but they are all too big to upload/
