It appears that a large chunk of us here in the NW of England and North Wales are due for quite a bit of snow in the next few days. Some reports I've seen show 2-3 days so far. Snow is pretty rare in this part of Lancashire and we usually have to drag the kids of to the Pennines or the Lake District to go tobogganing but not this time
I'll have to see if the kids school is going to close tomorrow first, but it's at time like this I think the gods I have a 4x4
I just started cycling back to work this week as well!
Any other areas looking at getting some of this?

I'm meant to be going to Sheffield to see a friend in a play tomorrow, from the Wirral. Doesn't look like we'll be making it across the Snake or Woodhead passes

My eldest is supposed to be returning home from Lancaster Uni on Saturday... I'm starting to wonder if that will happen.

We're supposed to be going to Gisburn Forest to ride the trails and for the opening of their new hub. Guy Martin is cutting the ribbon. I have a feeling the weather is going to scupper our plans now. I hope not!

Night before last it started about midnight here, didn't ease off until 3pm, by which point we'd had 23 inches dumped on us..... And more due!!
Although, I'm not complaining, I love snow. Just makes for hellish driving, and I always feel bad driving past cars off the road, though it is funny watching a ford or chevy driver's face when they need a tow from a Dodge/Chrysler/Jeep

I hate to break it to you, but it looks like the Wirral will be getting it quite bad according to the met office. It dosen't help that we'll get gusts of up to 50mph over the region as well!
