    Started to snow again in Worcester. Not heavy but settling on the drive I spent a couple of hours clearing yesterday.

    @glennda Where in Sussex are you? It's been snowing for about 2 hours without any signs of stopping.. Main road is clear outside my place but the side road isn't!

    I hear cars passing my house this morning with engine revs way up but apparently making very slow progress [I can hear but not see traffic passing behind the house] Based on that it is very slippery outside today.

    Snowing again in Leicester. Light at the moment but adding to what we already had and heavy snow predicted this aft.

    Stepped out the house last night to see a van pirouetting past the drive, the helpless drive gave me a shrug and a little wave. I waved back. It was a beautiful moment.

    Looks like someone dropped a bag of icing sugar on the top of a car here. That's about it. Up on the hills, they've got a proper amount but down here by the channel, its no go for snow.

    We've had about an inch down this morning, but the snow is now incredibly tiny flakes and the temperature is just above freezing, so we have a slight thaw. I can't see schools being closed in the Tonbridge area tomorrow.

    Been snowing constantly from when I woke at 7am in Ashford, Kent. There was a a decent amount when I woke up so could have been snowing longer. Hopefully school is open tomorrow for staff and the new server gets delivered! would be good if it did and the kids werent in so that I can do some jobs and not have to go in during the holidays!!

    Edit: Just got the email saying that I am working from home tomorrow!
