After trying 3 different routes from Great Ryburgh to Dereham I have given up. Any road running North to South is suffering large snow drifts around this area. Many roads not passable.

Might as well stay at home in the warm, rather than being stuck in a car 

Don't blame you! Shipdham to Watton is blocked, Ovington bends blocked etc etc. Dereham to Elmham just about passable, not many routes from Dereham to Wymondham passable. Basically not much in the way of options!

Hope it's ok to share some pictures I took whilst out around our little village this morning   I won't bore you with them all, but here's a few of my favourites  

Late Feb sun is strong, but i didn't think it was strong enough to melt roads

The thaw not very far away now. An'interesting winter indeed...and coming now to conclusion. Its been emotional and at times frustrating. Over and out. See ya-all november...ish.

Having grown up with the snow experiences of the 70’s and 80’s as a kid and how it was so much better then, i’m Close  to calling the conditions outside ‘the worst locally i’ve ever known’.  (Or the best.....but you know what I mean).

West London seems to be running fine, Schools open, roads busy! Horrendously cold on the walk into work, not that much snow though - still less than December, perhaps a couple CM's - surprising considering it seems to have snowed all of last night!

HIRLAM keeps that light snow in our region into the early afternoon but looks quite weak and very much a SW event - think we can one last bite at the cherry tomorrow and then we move towards less cold temperatures.

In terms of cold and radar watching it's been fantastic, not so much for snow accumulations.

No snow today but most of the roads are closed due to drifting. Couple of foot of snow around my house, tried clearing to get car ready for when roads open but given up now. Having wanted the snow....Not so sure now!

Sort of small-to-medium grain-type snow here in Leigh-on-Sea at the moment ; kinda snowing, kinda wind-drifting, maybe 3/10 in intensity. Given we're not forecast much today I'll take whatever we can get! Still a good snow base on the ground as well.

Just light snow all morning so far, radar is proving useless at the moment as it was snowing even the radar was showing nothing.

I'm guessing that's because the snow blows far more readily than rain, so can hit the ground at a different location from where it starts falling from.

Maybe,

Far more than I expected, looks like a blizzard for the last hour and getting heavier.

Snow blowing everywhere, not amounting to a lot but looks good.

Radar shows this front getting heavier as it travels over kent.

Morning, 

Am new here, so thought I would say Hi!

Very light snow in Peterborough, but can see more moving north towards us from the South.  Not that windy, but bitterly cold!

Welcome to the mad house :D

There's still plenty of snow due for Leigh-on-Sea looking at the radar! I reckon pretty much most of South Essex will get some snow fall, with the heaviest/bigger clump being east coast up to suffolk......going by the radar at least!

It's mesmerising watching the wind whip up snow off the roofs to join in the falling snow.
School closed here again, it appears they really debated this as they texted about 9pm last night, they must be glad it was warranted.

Indeed - radar struggles with snowfall. Light snow doesn't reflect radar beams in the same way rainfall does, hence the lower accuracy. Heavy snowfall is fine, but the light stuff is a different ball game.

Really is a bonus here today, had 2 hours of continuous snowfall, varying in intensity. Not bad at all, with what looks like more swinging up from the SE corner before it dries out later on.
