Hi all, I think over 10cm here, maybe getting on for 15cm.

One interesting thing about this particular snowfall is the snow is very light & fluffy, i remember the snowfall in mid-March cold spell last year (2nd beast from east), was similar. Not sure what causes this type of very fluffy snow.

Lack of moisture normally in the powder snow, the type we have had here today has not been powdery, but a lot more moisture in it, has not drifted at all, the stuff in March was blowing all, over the place.

 

edit just noticed you are talking about the second beast. Getting tired and the snow slowed down a bit, on that note bedtime. Goodnight all, thanks for all...

Looking good here in Rooksmoor - just went for a short walk, proper crunchy snow! All the trees are covered thanks to last nights hard frost. I was working in Stroud today doing garden work, some of the conifers in the garden had ice on them at 12pm! Perfect set up... 

Haven't ventured out properly yet. Want to keep it pristine for as long as possible.

Yeah the set up was spot on!  Still going but a bit more moderate now.

Yep first beast last March was very dry & powderey, almost like sand. But second beast the snow had a lot more moisture, and was very fluffy like tonight.

Difficult to describe what I am getting at. Fluffy is what it is, the lying snow lacks density & and is easily shifted say when walking through it. Anyway, just a minor point.

Has anyone got any tips to keeping awake bar coffee? Just asking because like a few people on here; not much sleep tonight ?

Adrenaline for me ? I’m loving it. Family all fast asleep but I’m at the window. Street lights off at 12 midnight but it doesn’t matter as it’s so light out with all the snow. Loving life at mo mate. ?❄️?

just had a look in the midlands thread............tumbleweed :oldwink:

About bloody time, on so many occasions the midlands has had a white out whilst the SW has rain. Payback.

Surpassed expectations around here, especially as it seemed so late coming. It looks amazing out there!

Absolutely. Enjoying so much I’ve not seen a single forecast for hours. Did notice my apple weather app switch from snow ending early hours to now dying out late tomorrow afternoon. Is that the expectation  for here?

Stay away from coffee it will just buzz you out then you will get the caffeine crash and it will make you more tired ;)

Seems to finally be moving off north and east for us and gradually fizzling out but some models show showers from the pivot through tomorrow. Gotta say anything else would be a bonus
