    The only time I remember seeing deep accumulation of snow in Deal. The roads were filled, the hedges and fences were drifts. Being coastal and low-lying we rarely do well from any other kind of set up.

    I remember when I parked my car next to the Royal in Deal and went on holiday. Next thing I knew Deal was on the news as a huge storm had hit, snow, high winds, the lot! The sea came over and trashed said car, it was phenomenal, wrecked The Royal forefront and they had to start the renovation again. Must have been in the nineties when I lived there. Happy days! :D

     

    Right, so (lie to me if you have too) is it possible we may get some more snow in East Kent?

    So the cold is almost at an end with a steady thaw expected over the coming days. As such the region will be one again. May I just say that the last week has been a real experience and I must tha

    Some people need to grow up. If you want to bicker and snipe do it via PM. Because the rest of us don’t want to know.

    As a child, I remember having quite deep, laying snow about 3-4 miles inland from Deal a few times - enough for the schools to close. This was in the 80's though!

    I live about 3 miles inland from deal, in the late 70s early 80s it was like an easterly nailed on every year, roads blocked with drifts, always off school for a few weeks

    The snow doesn't seem to want to stop here in Sevenoaks, its been constant for the last few hours, and that blob over the estuary looks ominous??

    Yes, getting pretty heavy here in Englefield Green! Bigger flakes, fabulous stuff. And temperature dropped from 0C to -1C.

    Would be awesome to get an actual streamer this evening. I have no skill to read charts or faxes so no idea if it’s likely but that would be the prefect end to a bizarre few weeks of weather for us all.

    Staring out the window towards the East, I see there is a bank of cloud approaching but a great big patch of clear blue sky coming first, I have not seen that all day. Took the washing in, nicely freeze dried and stiff.

    So basically when it thaws it will be wet again lol
