    Here in coventry its all rain what a utter load of crap this winter has been not seen a flake! Sunday looks bad for cov as well!

    It's been the same in Rugby too. We had one day where it snowed and literally left a cake dusting but that is literally it. Everything has missed us this winter.

    Wow, that's amazing! A pretty localised event, with areas under the most intense precipitation doing the best! Of course you elevation helps a lot! I guess thats 5cm?

    ok, at 400ft above sea level and it's drizzly rain, i've not even bothered to mention this 'even't to anyone, as i know it's not an event.

     

    If the next ice age happens, come to the coventry area, the glaciers advancing, wouldn't stand a chance!

    Speaking of an ice age....  (i heard you calling!😀)

    I've been applying the car wheel test to judge the rate of falling snow.

    At the peak it took just 2 mins to fill in the  track marks. Its now taking 4 minutes and it still is coming down so that I do not need my lamppost to see it.!!

    Really incredible rate of snowfall here now.  Temp now stuck at 0.5C

    Let hope it is still around tomorrow as sledging at Elmdon Park would be very nice.
