    150-200mm here, just finished helping Sprogette make SnowLady cradling SnowBaby(!), their SnowRabbit(!!) and SnowArmchair(!!!)... managed to talk her out of the cat, coffee table, sofa, bed, TV, igloo etc... cunningly using all the snow that was on the sloping drive with Teacher t'other half's car at the top of it.

    Saw some photos of a friend back home, whose neighbours have built a snow wall at the end of their drive, blocking them in
    Now that's a great excuse not to go to work.

    It snowed non stop from about 2pm yesterday and then hasn't bothered overnight. I'm full of cold and was really hoping for a duvet day tomorrow!!

    To be fair the first sharp frost we had this winter in Kent stopped the trains getting to London (at least where I am).

    Could be worse. Apparently New Yorkers have seen two feet of snow:

    Only in as much as we get sent alert notices from BA and travel agents about the situation regards flights in / out of LHR, LGW, MAN etc. Just in case we're travelling.

    Biggest problem here is a sandstorm, or two days ago, we had a few mm of rain

    We had a couple of inches. Today it's 99% gone. However, at work and the area round there, it's still "tracks in the snow", and at tiddlers nursery, it's not even that due to it being on an Industrial estate with no weekend traffic! Cue us riding on top of frozen snow all the way in. The snow/winter tyres did well. "Snow mode" on the gearbox though, less so.

    I'm afraid I don't like GM's shift strategy in that mode...lots of revs, very little go...feels very uncontrolled. So I turned it off again. Heh.

    Starting Thursday at 9pm for near on 24 hours... that'll be lots of happy children and one very grumpy me as I get woken up by the Head phoning my mobile at 6am again

    Cheers for the heads up. It certainly didn't look like that at the start of the week.
