Saw a milk float get stuck up my road, I live on a slight down, and laughed when he couldnt move it - having to deliver the milk by hand whilst another made sure no-one emptied him of his pasteurised milk. All I needed to see now was a bakers van...

It's not too bad here.
I do have a trip down to Kent on Thursday, so hope it's all gonna be gone by then.

Hey Woody, where in Kent are you going??

I have at least a foot of snow here and it's just started to snow heavily again...

Just off to work... today I'll mostly be using a Land Rover... :)

Best of luck with that. We have about a foot of the stuff this side of the Thames too. Spent an hour making the 10 minute drive into work at 4am this morning driving through snow drifts in the middle of the A13!.
Coupled up to the trailer and couldn't even drag it out of the bay, so they stood us all down for the day. :D :D

Just finished making a snowman complete with Grass hair with the kids.

Got quite a bit of Snow today, still managed to make it into work though (pretty easy trip, save for the steep hill!). Its meant to get worse later though, might duck out early to escape the worst of it.

Funny thing was, I was on Xbox Live last night and video-gamer-girl was asking me if it was snowing up here and I said no, it had snowed a little bit during the day yesterday but not stuck....

Woke up this morning and it was white everywhere :shock: :shock:

As DPrinny says though, life goes on...

I was in Lowestoft yesterday visiting my dad. One minute it was snowing then it was sunny...Strange stuff.

However on the way home on the A143 it was a nightmare. Snowing heavy and my windscreen wipers kept freezing solid and wouldnt clear the windscreen. Very dangerous stuff. I was on edge all the way home ( 126 miles ).

In Surrey, the snow must be about a foot deep! :shock: My dad couldn't get to work because of road closures etc, and my mum simply didn't bother :)

Here's a shot from our back garden:

Impressive stuff, just looked very frosty and cold when I got up. There was a blitz just now for a couple of minutes but then it stopped. I want it to snow!!!! :evil: :evil:
