Some heavy arguing this morning with patches of bickering at times. Very cold with a distinct  feel of unpleasantness in the air. Looking like a big improvement later with some intervals of sarca

Thaw setting in now! Some unbelievable scenes, still folk snowed in in places, imagine how this looked before the thaw and before being dug out when the snow was untouched!!  95BD1E10

Some self righteous folk on here it seems. Nature is nature is nature...that includes suffering/tragedy/ unfortunate events etc etc in any form of life, whether it be farming or in our daily live

Yes, measuring is nigh on impossible given the drifting. Cover varies from a thick dusting to several inches here!

I see my neighbour has been greedy. As if he thought I wouldn't notice him piling it up against the garage door.

Light dandruff snizzle here drifts on the field maybe half an inch. 

Over Rawtenstall on the ELR today to see what the fuss is all about :unknw:

There’s a lot of snow in Summerseat, varies from some wind scoured areas to some with drifts. Seems to have been snowing on and off since 4pm yesterday. I imagine Rawtenstall, 150m higher than here, is buried!

I can’t speak for Rawtenstall but higher up the valley in Bacup this is what we’ve got and it’s still coming down like mad.

i don’t know how much as fallen because the wind has blown in around but i’d imagine at least 6 inches and I wouldn’t be surprised if we have drifts of over 6 feet within a few minutes walk of here.

this reminds me so much of 22nd March 2013 and that was the worst since 1979.

Look at that for a FAX chart

Snow has fallen here 15 out of the last 47 days, it feels it has been fairly snowy since the start of February.

It was 14 weeks ago since that Sunday the West Midlands got that huge dump of snow.  

Nice fax. Along with the one showing the convergence zone at 18z yesterday, text book examples of getting convective and then frontal snow out of an easterly in NW England.

I classify a snow event from 1 (bit of falling snow), 2 a proper covering then 3 - a proper event (all very subjective). This winter has had loads of 1 and 2 events in Ramsbottom. Then the icing on the cake, 3, 3 rated proper events in just over two weeks in March!!

Still snowing here. Hard to say how much as it’s blowing around. Snow devils are rare here, but not this month.

Cheshire and Derbyshire Police have said there is no safe route between the counties. Cheshire say if you try it and get stuck you’re on your own because they cant get close to you to rescue you.

I think that should include GMR police aswell.

Spare a thought for NHS staff. They are supposed to get in regardless of the conditions.

Many roads closed up here..

Goodness me only an easterly can produce these kind of results imby.

Any other wind direction doesnt even come close ..

Same here.

Both northwest 4x4 response and peak 4x4 response are evidently in East Cheshire helping get people in today. Certainly doing a lot better than Cheshire Council!

BBC forecast shows the snow clearing shortly but there are still some pretty bright radar echoes across the South Pennines so another couple of hours may yet be on the cards.

one thing is for sure, the Met O underestimated the snow IMBY with us comfortably outside of the Amber area throughout and yet most local roads either blocked or virtually impassible

To be fair, you were only a whisker away from the amber warning area but you were inside the yellow. I thought the metoffice warnings were fairly accurate to be honest, especially if the wording was read carefully.
