Hiya Pal, this Photo is just a bit further down on Sholver.. If Shaw road & bottom Sholver is already bad I can almost guaruntee that Ripponden is probably a lot worse with it being higher up. 

 

How the hell you get in there when you live in Saddleworth ? I couldn't get in at that practice !!!  🙂

Blimey 750+ in the NW thread!... suddenly feel like I'm rising to the despatch box.

Icy slushy covering here. Not bad considering all the rain that proceeded it... hoping for some beefy snow showers during the day. 

*sits back down

lol luckly you. If it carries on like this and you due up in an hour an half or more then I wouldn't be risking it to be honest. And for anyone else in the area. I would say Bullcote lane leading onto Shaw road is soon to be a no go as is buckstones road 🙂

 I’m not. The Irish sea is above average so you’re going to have to be at least 50 miles inland to have any chance of being  below freezing. Will be different tonight.

Could get some cracking hail showers with the odd bang of thunder today though then eyes turn to our snow chance tonight 👍
