    Do you feel this month has wiped out the pain of your big misses of the past 10 years??

    Oh, without a doubt! Feb 28th/March 1st saw more snow here than 2009 and 2010 combined. From both these events, circa 25cm in total. That's rare in itself, and yet it happened in March. :O

    The brighter echoes look to be headed our way :) surprised me when I looked at the radar I thought the snow was done with us for the day.  Ice surprise

    Yeah it's looking quite good developing quickly. Have a sparkling dusting now which has covered the patio and street so looking good!

    I'm only 100meters, but in these non marginal set-ups elevation doesn't make that much difference.

    radar is suggesting something heavier is on the way so perhaps an hour or so of more significant snowfall

    I believe I'm 65 Meters. Not far off each other. Difference is, Cleeve Hill is my snow shield.

    Going by the radar and taking into account the amount of lying snow in Devon, surprised parts of Devon did. Did not get a red warning, perhaps thats what Ian was referring to, perhaps the models have underperformed..

    Semi-pitching on the road here, not in the middle bit where cars go up and down. Concrete is getting a good seeing too, though. :)

    Abbeymead - small flakes blowing in the wind, instant cover though after the road melt earlier.
