    Sod all in Northants nothing all season. Some of you lot should be more grateful for what you had rather than whining that you didn't get a top up!

    No  you're absolutely right. My comment was a bit tongue in cheek as Stoke has been the sweet spot. If that easterly materialises you'll be in a much better location than here or stoke, so fingers crossed it pays off!

    A positive note.... Just a small reminder of where we were last year, if I remember I didn’t see a flake winter 2019, so up to now I’ve surpassed last year 🥳

    Saw a good dumping in February, which wasn’t forecast. A poor winter otherwise.

    Remember that day well as it was my birthday and I was off work which meant I could enjoy the snow. That band went right across the A50 corridor too but was very narrow.

    Yeah not a lot to shout about, but at least with an easterly flow and a SSW things aren’t boring this year, lots to play for before the end i hope! Now where’s those rosary beads...

    Snow showers incoming off the Irish Sea in the next hour, should give a fresh top up.
