    Hahaha! I'm just up the road from you. I'll be on my way down on the number 3 .. If its still running!  I'm at Harestock far end not far from little tescos. Oh lordie battery hill is a nightmare at the best of times LOL!! I remember fun at the top of stanmore lane by the lights when I was younger! Stalling cars when the lights went red trying to get out of Stanmore lane. Brilliant!

    Ha ha I know the area! Will be moving to Eastleigh soon...I’m not far from the Fulflood pub. I’m lucky my car has been in an MOT so will be training it to work tomorrow and won’t need to worry like some as quite hilly in my locality too. I see you have been missing out on the snow! Knowing what the bus drivers are like round here they probably will still be running if you still need a snow fix! ?

    Moderate snow now with lots of big flakes and they are really dry flakes too. It's sooo amazing when you shine a light on them they really sparkle. Had about 1cm top up so far

    Very glad I'm not working tomorrow so I can stay up and watch it:yahoo:

    Heavy snow. Roads covered. 

    Did you not have a snow day on the 2nd Feb 2015 then? I remember we had about 3 or 4 inches here that day. (referring to your signature)

    Surely we can't miss out, seems we are in the sweet spot 

    Scrap that, we do indeed seem to missing out on the heavy stuff. For sum reason it dies out before getting here then peps up again to the west of us 

    Couldn't make it up could you, weather gods don't like Weston tonight although there is a large area of heavy precipitation directly easy of us, if that holds together then it can't miss.... Unless of breaks up and reforms as it goes past lol

    Blobs appearing to back build a bit in the past few frames over W/Nw Sussex. Could give some a bit more time under the precip :)

    Back to light snow again in Portsmouth. Maybe I was too quick to criticize the Met Office app. Forgive me Knocker :)

    Been going nearly 4 hours so far.

    I’ve had over an inch here already. I’m not looking out at measurements now as I want to surprise myself lol. But I can see the lamppost and all is good here!! Still coming down nicely, albeit not as heavy as earlier but that was insane!

    The only times I remember the buses not running because of the snow when I lived just outside Winchester were Dec 2009 and Dec 2010.

    Heavier than anything I saw last night, the fat flakes are now fighting it out with the angel dust blowing off the roof from earlier. :clap:

    You got lucky with that heavier blob. Still light snow here.

    Poor Channel Islands. Guernsey especially seems Jersey is seeing some now, that Streamer has been going on for many hours so near but yet so far to the jackpot.

    Almost as painful the channel streamer that lasted 3 days during the last beast.

    I think they had to stop running a few weeks ago for a time but not sure about this time round to be honest. Either way hopefully people won’t need to be travelling far on a snowy Sunday evening -it’s more tomorrow morning which could be messy. :)

    Well this is turning in to quite an event, more so than I thought. Snowing again now with caster sugar spilt everwhere after a significant loss of snow to sublimation earlier on.

    I can confirm the back edge is putting up a fight. Snow is gradually getting back towards a moderate level. Perhaps getting on for 3cm on the grass since 7pm.

    Still moderate snow, very impressive.

    Tried kicking the cat out earlier but scrambled back in before I could close the door in time. I then spent ten minutes clearing the patio of snow to try lull the cat into a false sense of security but it wasn’t being fooled. it’s covered in snow again now anyway, so the cat wins, it’s the litter tray for another night.

    Bedtime. Well, I’m going to try anyway ?
