    Still snowing quite a bit and sticking. I wouldn't be surprised if the school shuts early today if it continues. I can hear the Students going crazy as they go to there first lesson.

    Watch the snow (precipitation) arriving, almost live!

    See Meteox.com - Weather - European rainfall radar, for the radar (and satellite) images from up to only half an hour ago

    Well it's well and truely snowing here now! The official line is that if a parent phones in, they are allowed to collect their child now/the child is allowed to go (obviously the kids don't know this!). I have called my Mother, and she's phoning the school in a few mins!

    Still snowing here as it has been since early hours and looks like it'll continue for some time (MetCheck site clouds firmly over my region) School is open but the teachers keep checking conditions.

    I think the official line came into being because so many parents had already called, and then other kids started phoning their parents! We've not got that many kids, and they're all good

    Certainly, anyone who wants my Mother to ring their school please send me your school's phone number!!!!!! Service is offered at a minimal charge of one G&T per call

    Decision being made at 10:30. The taxi firms have been calling to ask if we want kids collecting as the other schools in the area are closing.

    Kidderminster-ish way... It's pretty much stopped now, but what fell has stuck - it's about 2" by the front gates. They've not shut us, even though half the kids have gone, and cars can't get up the road outside the school!!!

    EDIT: Spoke to soon - message through the txt system just arrived; we're closing at 1
