    Yeah 96 was the best since the 70s, remember going to the flicks to watch I think se7en and it just started snowing, came out and had to walk home, crazy stuff in West lancs/ Merseyside. That's why I was kind of hopeful in this setup but it not working out that way at the moment is it pal...🤞

    Yeah, I remember February 1996; I worked in Wigan then, and the M58 only had one lane clear - though I remember a few cars flying past in lane 2..😱

    I had to get out before the sun melted it all. 

    Some brilliant walking conditions this morning apart from the sheer depth of snow, almost a foot fell here last night and not a Met O warning in site. made for some good photographs though, altho

    Heaviest single fall of snow for several years here and the heaviest in April since 1981.

    I've been watching that, some behind that too.

    Fingers crossed, today looks more promising than last two.. but not holding my breath - nice shower just hit here now.

    Just watched the met office forecast. At the end the text says 'Cold wind, Wet in west (some snow) and Milder by next week'. Screams downgrade to me.

    Atlantic wins in the end. (Breakdown just a whimper) 👎👎 😒

    Great to see the rain coming back the moment it starts turning milder! 🙄

    I've been out on a good day's hike around Chinley Churn today with a few fleeting snow-showers and treading through knee-deep snow at times, feeling warm when the sun was out but facing the Easterly wind it definitely felt 'Alpine-like' up on the top. A contrast to the green of Manchester & Cheshire compared to the white landscape looking out over this side of the Peak District.

    I'm getting really sick and tired of these snizzle showers while the sun is still out. It was quite pretty the first few times. Now it just makes me sad haha. It's made worse by the fact that is settles straight away too, if only we could get one of these for half an hour we'd be on to a winner.
