    we've not had a good dump up here in a long time. Winters are definately getting a lot more milder. In fact, there's been more sun the last week here than there was all summer.

    not enough snow for school to shut up my neck of the woods but enough to make everybody drive at 5 miles an hour which really infuriates me. especially when there isn't even any on the roads!!!!

    We've got a fair amount of snow but are still open. About a 1/3rd of the staff off. It really hacks me off - the snowfall we get is tiny and people can't manage to drive a few miles to work!

    Not so bad in the North East (near the coast). Light dusting of snow on top of ice caused by rain last night followed by freezing temperature. Very slippery, caretakers at school spreading salt/grit all over. Sunny at the moment....

    Seems to have bypassed us here in Wigan.
    Frosty this morning and a bit slushy but the sun's out now. Supposed to be the same again tomorrow, apparently.

    Frozen slush in Preston. We are a bit to low level for a good fall, it has been giving a few good flurries in Chorley however. More tonight I think.

    *Many silly people driving at 2mph on the way to work on perfectly clear roads though. It's as if they expect the ice from the fields to suddenly run out and dive under their wheels!

    Completely agree, had a very nice 1ft covering in the dales this morning, and didn't really clear or get much above 40mph until I hit the A590, and even that was a bit patchy in places where it hasn't been cleared enough. No real snow here in the lakes though, my car has more than the rest of the campus put together I think! Although saying that we have just had a nice snow shower.

    I live in 'boring weathers-ville'. ie. rain is pretty much it for us. I'd love some snow, even if I still had to work (I live 10minutes from school, by foot). But alas, it is not going to happen.

    We're talking about snow! Leave your toilet discussion for elsewhere please.
