My sheep have retreated to the back of the barn, talk about standing room only! I do like having Lamb Cam, it says it's still snowing :nonono: I'm ready for 27C now please!

Bloody cold out there! I'm coming in here for a bit :laugh:

 

Yeah there is going to be a lot of water around when this lot melts! I live in Rushden but i'm down in Oxford for this weekend. When I left Rushden yesterday, there was around 4-5cm around. They had some more last night and tonight by the looks of it!

 

Had a decent amount in Oxford too so I didn't miss out...

Screen shot of my barn. There's a lot of snow in there and it (as the song says) it doesn't show signs of stopping..

ooh what a fab time we’ve had, tho glad not to have needed medical attention, been stuck on a train, hit by a driver whilst they texted on a mobile or fell over my shadow into a ditch et al.

Hope all the mad NW snow posters stay safe and enjoy their hibernation till the next time..

This is my last pic this season unless the snow thaws enough to mould it into something - view from our front door inc the lamp post weather station :crazy:

Tis been great to read everyone’s excitement and +ve comments - We’re a strange and lovely lot and long may it continue (-;

I'm just hoping for a decent run of storms this summer; maybe this exceptional winter means we're in for a treat (as long as the French aren't stingy, anything interesting makes it out of London and the Midlands and the NE doesn't pinch ours like they have done for the last 5 years)...

Snizzle started about 15.00 today, drier tiny pellets by 16.00 when out with the dog, I set off home at 17.00 and then it was sticking fast and freezing over.  DD's house is a few miles north and 40m ASL, in an undulating residential close, with a hill out of the village and up to the main road, then onto a straight A road in open countryside, with a couple of shallow hills.  Powder snow had packed and frozen, but lots blowing off the fields, traffic was at a steady 15 mph and I'm glad i didn't have to brake.  Whether I'm in the little manual hatchback, as today, or the old Discovery (auto), I'm not at all happy driving on snow.  The little car wouldn't slide as far, I could probably push it a bit if I had to, and at least the radio works.  The Disco is full of diesel and it's so heavy anyway, it takes longer to stop.

It's stopped snowing in the last half-hour or so and has accumulated more today than it has all week.  Temp -1.3 and I wonder if this is the last snowy night.

A beautiful powdery swan song from the beast. Until next time!

Still bloomin snowing here as well. I'd given up on really analysing the weather reports about yesterday, because of boredom after the event, but had watched a few that suggested that we would get no more, or rain. And so was expecting the very start of thaw about now. But no, it's fairly coming down. I reckon a couple of centimetres so far, but looking at the radar I expect it will be quite a bit more by sunrise. Grrr, I hope, at least, THIS stuff is good for snowmen!

Winter going out with a bang here. Terrific spell. A proper convective easterly, record breaking cold, 3 consecutive ice days and a snowy breakdown to round it off. Let's do this again in December, Nature.

Mental - considering this was supposed to be more like it should have been 3 days ago! Bring on the sunshine pleeeeeeeese!

I suspect that Theresa has upset our European friends and they are now declining to send us the weather we really love - the temp at Watford is now +0.1C, humidity 91%. 

Overall I reckon we had about 8cms of snow, though a lot of it was scattered into drifts in the wind. 

Adieu niege, adieu gele. :sorry:

Salut printemps  :)

It has stopped snowing here. A reasonable covering here so at the very least there was a decent snow event here.
