    Daughter claimed she needed to buy a shovel to get to her hall of residence in Lancaster this week. Snow never stuck when I was there either

    You'd need a garden VAC to make a snowball in that picture.

    Well it certainly did dump a good load on us, 2ft seems small where its drifted / gritters ploughed it to we have got some 4+ft heaps, thankfully my investment in the 4x4 and Snow Tyres has paid off no issues getting to the road today or being a good son and collecting my mum from work as she doesn't like driving in these conditions at all so my dad took her and I collected her

    We have heavy rain now. I expect that all of the snow will be gone in the morning [as per the forecast]

    We have snow again right now. It is falling on ground that is wet from rain earlier in the day and so does not look like settling at the moment but it is having a good go at it [snowing quite heavily: Flakes are small]

    Thought we might have gotten away with it but it's coming down here again and it's settling too

    Oh well, at least I don't have to drive tomorrow

    Main roads are now covered, which is concerning as the other half doesn't finish work for another hour and has to get out here from the city center

    Light covering here. Car will need clearing, but our cul de sac looks clear, so other roads should be fine.
