Nice clear skies, hoping for some lampost watching later.

Think you might want to add some clouds to that

Never mind the snow, a late thawing of the last dusting has left every surface lethal. Chances of me getting up my lane tomorrow - zero, never mind driving anywhere :nonono: Total snow cover today - probably 0.5cm (optimistic estimate)

Best little shower since this morning right now in SWF, mainly because I can see the moon and the falling snow at the same time, can't recall seeing that before. It's settling now the sun has set.

Only really a dusting in NW Essex but showers becoming more frequent. I wasn`t expecting much today, expect tonight/tomorrow to spice things up a bit. Friday still looks on the table too if we can resolve what that freaking LP is going to do and when.

Looks like the more chunky showers going to start running just to my South now over S Essex and into Kent.

Think it'll be a wait until tomorrow situation now.

Your neighbour the greatest living Englishman! Saw JCC at Festival No.6 a few years ago and he was great, I like a bit of poetry, I saw Kate Tempest last year and was blown away. Sometimes my job is really fun! 
This is the gig I am missing https://app.dice.fm/event/v3g2v-the-boxer-rebellion-28th-feb-islington-assembly-hall-london-tickets (and I took that photo) so it's a shame I can't make it. 

I popped out for a bit, can report about 10 flakes were seen outside Asda, so time to get reacquainted with the radar.

Nice, I'll look them up, I can't get enough of King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard at the moment, luckily they release an album every few months. Ah Martin, many was the evening sipping JD and listening to his stories in my kitchen. I got invited up to his lounge when Captain Sensible was over for the weekend. I was so awe-struck the only thing I said to him was "Alright?" Love Kate Tempest, her live performances blow my mind.

Superb little mini blizzard in north-west London just now; a blizzardette, if you will.

Not much more action north of the Thames now until tomorrow I would say. Oh to be living in north Kent tonight.

Looks like more on the way except wind has veered more NE so may be it's being blown to Nkent

She had me glued to the spot when I saw her, one of my favourite pictures of last year. I have many a story to tell, but we are more bothered about the snow dropping down than names. I'd be here all day! 


Right now I'm hoping my neighbours come home soon and turn on their lights, pitch black in my garden right now so I'm up and down looking out the front instead. A shower that looked great on the radar just skirted past my town, I'm taking it personally.

Pavements are lightly dusted with snow here in Wivenhoe but nothing yet.

It should pick up again later given the heavy snow forecast for the early hours of tomorrow morning.

Fingers crossed no school tomorrow!!!
