    Mine had too much of a good thing last year with snow... both are fervently hoping it won't

    I'm hoping it'll hold off long enough for husband's plane to land at Heathrow tomorrow and then snow hard enough to stop me visiting the in-laws on Sunday

    Now you've said this, it'll be the opposite.

    So far no snow for me, only freezing windscreen washers that turn to ice when I use them and stopping me from removing the frozen traffic film streaking across the windscreen.

    Good few inches here. Just been out for a drive to the main road though, it's doable. Damn cold though, and difficult to get around an abandoned van half way up the street!

    Well I've just looked out my window and we've got a good 4-5 inches of snow sitting outside. Now the question is, is it staying until tomorrow or melting??

    Bah! Nothing here. It 'snowed' ice yesterday, and now it's very foggy. We took the kids to Clitheroe yesterday, at least they had snow

    Just been watching Sky News and if you were watching it you would think again about buying a BMW.

    Most of the cars that were stranded in the video clips were fairly new BMW's. At one point there were 3 of them in a row just off a hard shoulder!

    We have about 3 to 4 inches in places in Hillingdon, near to Heathrow. The gritters have been out but the side roads are not great.

    Have yet to update the school website...

    So much talk of "inches"... the Frankie Howard portion of my brain is overloading.
