Snowing when I got up this morning (04:00)and hasn't stopped since. Over the next few days, it'll be just Monday that's going to be snow-free - allegedly.

Snow......

Wow, Welshcookie my last winter was a doddle compared to what you had to deal with.

Everything is frozen outside today Sue but we have sunshine too; all in all rather a lovely day. Yes, trying to find alternate heating sources has been a bit of a problem for us too. No central heating when there is a power cut. I now got a butane gas heater which is easy to light. We still have a log fire but we don't always have the wood close by the house and dry. Next job for us is to 'rescue' the wood at the woodpile which became overgrown by brambles last summer; we don't go to that part of the garden very often !!

Oh don't worry, that's all in the past, we're retired now.
I just hoped that those people who claim they don't prepare for eventualities spare a thought for people who don't have a Waitrose within easy reach and have to get on with things whatever the weather.

Well they do here in Canada, James, because we're all so used to it. I am not sure this is quite so true in the UK, if the newspaper accounts are anything to go by.

I was horrified to read that people were throwing stones at a gritting lorry because it was going slowly. Over here, I thank my lucky stars if I can get to drive behind a gritting truck. It means I will have a nice, safe gritted road to drive on!

Waiting for the snow ...

Here on the edge of the Peak District we have got a little snow, but we're waiting for the rest.... Glad I don't live in Wales though, & it sounds like it has begun for them already. We have cancelled our planned meeting in Birmingham, so we'll see how easy it is to run a review workshop via a conference call - scheduled for 4 hours!

snow here

in my Mid-Devon village. The first snow for our hens and they look a bit worried about it. Thankful we went to Okehampton yesterday to stock up.

It's here - big time. We already had a dusting but overnight we truly got dumped on in South East Wales. Forecast to continue for the day and advised to expect 20-30 cms.
Fortunately, our freezers are all stocked up nicely. We won't starve.
Keep safe everyone.

Snow

It started dead on 8.30 am here in Hove, and is settling nicely. I love snow, and we never seem to get much in our far-flung corner of Ireland, but here in Sussex - bring it on!

Failed to go panic buying, but I do have a Tesco's order which is supposed to be delivered between 10 and 12 today - hoping they'll make it, 'cos Dad doesn't have a freezer, and well be reduced to living off courgettes and french beans if it doesn't turn up! Got plenty of bread and milk, but seeing as I consume neither, that's not a lot of comfort for me!

Snowing here

Lots of snow falling here at the moment.
The local school sent letters on Wednesday saying they will send the children home at 12 if the predicted fall of snow happens.
My Grandsons school serves a lot of villages , so I guess they want to make sure the busses get through.

Snow

We have plenty here in SW France - it snowed all day on Wednesday and we now have 6 or 7 inches of it which doesn't show any signs of going away. We cannot get out as we have a steep drive and our kind neighbours (who have winter tyres on their car - they are Danish!) have just called with essential supplies. (Whisky for my husband was top of the list!) Supplies in the freezer are diminishing, but I am sure we will survive.

Snow

Started this morning at 10 in my little part of France, we are 1 hour away from Le Mans. Only a few cm at the moment. Have to take the kids back to school in a minute and stay to do my English lesson, got another class starting today as the teacher is really lazy and asked yesterday would i mind teaching her class. That is 4 classes i now teacher, would be good if they paid me.

Keeping fingers crossed it doesn't snow to much during the afternoon as i will have to walk back through the snow, hubby said the car was already slipping when he went out earlier.

keep warm everyone & don't take risks

Lots of snow

I've often wondered why we English get so panicked by the white stuff. When I was young and about 3ft 6in tall we had to go to school one Easter with the snow well over my head, no-one missed a day.We had paths dug through the snow to the outside classrooms.
I woke up this morning to quite a covering of snow, but the paper person had managed to get through. The birds in the back garden are attacking the feeders like nobody's business, and knocking great wads of snowballs down from the apple tree. The 'Snow Police' would have a great time.
We live in a country market town so conditions are very good on the main road, side roads are a bit clagged up.
