We had some light dusting overnight...and the roads were a tad slippy this morning, but..that's it. So far anyway. Bit nippy last night mind you, we were both sat in front of the fire.
Bloody amateur installed laminate flooring with no insulating layer...brr...in my little computer roon, I've had to electrical tape the gap between the skirting and the floor to seal it until I can get some silicone..the wind hits that wall, and the garage is underneath..brrrrr....

We have about 2 inches of snow here in Dundee, which in Bedfordshire would close the schools due to buses not running.
Despite the roads being covered with snow (despite the grit) earlier, the buses are running as usual, and it looks like nobody really cares. I'm now just waiting for the pavement snow plough to go past.

It was "cover the front of pete in white" while walking to work, but now the sun is out.
Was hoping for a snow day so I could get some infrastructure upgrades done.

2 inches here at Westhoughton, Bolton. I was stranded for 3 hours on the same lane. I abandoned car and walked home, went back for it later, then set back off for again. Got here at 12.15. Other countries deal with the white stuff day in day out, why can't we? And if you've never driven in it or don't how to, why get in your car in the first place and cause chaos for those of us who can drive in it?

Got the call at 7:10 that the school was closed. Its not very deep here but it is resisting all the grit! Suppose to be ok tommorow but then heavier snow that today on Thursday!

That's a photo from when it snowed a couple of weeks ago - the roads weren't that clear today - but they were getting there. The only reason our road is clear is because it's a bus route, so gets gritted.

Middleton, near Rochdale was white - abut 2 ft i reckon..
Roads had not seen any gritters at all overnight so snow all over the place including the main drag from Rochdale to Manchester..
Bus finally arrived at about 7:20 due to a jack-knifed lorry further down from where I was.. (Usually its 6:10 - so already late for work!)
By 8:15 I had gone the amazing distance of.... 1 Mile! (Blackley)
traffic wasn't moving at all by this point - it was nose to tail all the way into Manchester.. So I abandonded Bus..
Phoned the school and said i'll be using the VPN due to conditions on the road
It took me 30 mins to walk the distance I had just come!
First one is Of Main Road where the bus stop is - about 10 mins after this was taken it was nose to tail in traffic - and the bus arrived
The others are of DJ in the garden
