    Up here in the harder North we're just getting on with it, everyone's gone to work, the schools are open.
    Tell me about it. Its quite pathetic - this country has all types of weathers but for some reason it can't cope. Just goes to show how backwards this country is & why we are the laughing stock of Europe.

    Two Inches? Try 8! Some reports are even saying 10! It was certainly more than 2 here. I stepped outside and my feet were completely covered!

    This is the most snow for at least 20 years though.
    Certainly more than 6 inches where we are in Essex. Must take a piccie including measuring tape.

    Just heard that down in Woking its seven inches, and still falling.

    Up here its somewhat less. In fact it was little enough that I made it into work this morning.

    Although looking at it now I may end up staying at work for a few days...

    We rarely ever get snow down in Dorset - first in quite a few years I think. Was a nice change. For the first time in a while whilst coming out of my drive, I slightly skidded good times :P

    So many schools closed in the area, including my old school which I live at the back off? Yet now everything is fine? Its lol, crazy! Why? It was fine to get to.

    Look what happened to Canada/U.S. recently, it was crazy over there. People live in -10 odd every day for many months. Yet here its a big big thing!?

    O well my school is open so, working as usual. Now its a sunny nice day!

    For the first time in over 15 years our schools is closed due to snow. I found out at the staff meeting where half the staff had turned up. I promptly amended the website, with the news that it might be closed tomorrow as well !.

    I have just made a snowman with the young un, I feel like a teenager again !!.

    If the school is closed tomorrow it will make my month.

    Our school was open as normal today - we had snow but not enough to cause any problems. All staff went sent home at 3:30 after the students had got on the buses.

    We are in for worse forecast tomorrow, and I have the sneaky feeling we won't be in at all. I better draft the TXT message that I will be sending to staff / parents in the morning )
