Pretty but a lot more to come be careful and keep cosy.

...and you too Scotkat. I am worrying that I won't be able to get to my daughter's to babysit in the morning if it keeps on coming. My son-in-law has had to take today off work as the friend who looks after the children on Mondays couldn't get there.

It must be near freezing because we have some 2 foot long icicles!..........but they are dripping! The snow doesnt go away!

Ooh, that's a lot of snow ... stopped down here but very cold ... OH put a sheet over the car windscreen last night as off early today ... it came off like a piece of rigid cardboard! Hope it stops soon for you.

Been so much Homebird - most people are off work today including Becky so I am quite happy with it today - BBC weather apparently the Midlands escaped it !

No snow here :o(( It looks lovely. I have a guest staying at the moment from Nottingham & it took him seven hours to get through to us Friday.

we have had about a foot over night.

Oh dear me :o(( I feel sorry for you all I really do :o(( I hope you don't get any more, and I hope it doesn't make you feel depressed like it does me :o(
We haven't had any more here, and the bit we have got is thawing slowly. We had some rain earlier on.
Take care and keep safe ...
At least the days are starting to get a bit longer :o)

Thanks everyone. You have had the worst of it Val. It's keeping T fit clearing it every day from the paths. A couple of chaps and T upturned the grit box at the bottom of the hill this morning to get the grit out and smash it up for the road. The grit was a solid lump in the bin. It took a bit of doing but they managed it. Hooray, I just noticed its stopped snowing now.

stopped snowing here at the moment, out grit bins here are empty, the council have not filled them at all this winter, I went out when Ralph was in the shower and cleared from the door round to the gate, but boy did I get told off, he and a friend have been trying to do the drive.

I can't believe just how much you have all had down there - it's usually the other way around!
I hope you are all keeping safe!

The snow looks lovely when it first settles :o)

I'm not surprised you got told off Yorkshire. You could have slipped and broken something important. Wait til your son finds out and you will get another telling off.

21 Jan, 2013

 

It does seem strange for us to get more snow than you Scottish. I hope you stay safe and warm too up there in the nether regions. Take care.
Tt I love it when it first comes but it does get a bit tedious after a while.

my son phoned but I did not tell him I had been out in it,

22 Jan, 2013

 

My goodness that IS quite a lot of snow and it looks wonderful.
We have still had NOTHING just a little bit of sleet today.
I want to be in the 'We have had snow club!!' and I'm not!

Aww Bless......... :o)))
