About 4cm of snow. Now sunny. About to drag kids around in sledges. One disadvantage of the fens is a lack of hills.

Wow, really getting fun here. Hasn't stopped snowing since 9:30 this morning. Out of curiosity, got the tape measure out and measured 14.5 inches on the drive. Tomorrow's commute to work should be fun...assuming i can get off our road

I remember when I was at school, if we had a tiny sprinkling of snow in Groby, the kids from markfield/field head were snowed in  :o
I guess you must be a good bit higher up than us?

Post by: PhoenixTLB on December 01, 2010, 10:49:36 AM
I remember in the early 90's driving to work on Groby Road past County Hall and it was down to one lane with snow piled in the other lane halfway up the side of the car.

Not much in Quorn either, about an inch on the drive but roads are clear, only problem was last night as it started to sleet/melt then rapidly froze. The roads & paths were a skating rink for a short time.

Didn't stop again last night so more white gold this morning. Couldn't shift either mine or Curstie's cars so an unexpected day off work today. Will see how we do tomorrow but will work from home if not.

..and as you can see, very happy about it ;D

6-8 inches overnight, still snowing.

3 out of 8 staff didn't make it in this morning and are working from home...

I sent a pic of our offices to the local radio station:

Now I know it's bad up in Scotland, but bloody -7 this morning on the way to work !!

Post by: muguk on December 03, 2010, 12:30:07 PM
It was -10c in the car park at Sainbury's in Warrington where I get a lift to work from.  Slowly but surely as we picked up the other two passengers, it went down to -7.5c .. hopefully it's a bit better over the weekend as I've got Bowlers tomorrow, then a night out in Liverpool.  And the German markets in Manchester on Sunday.

I like the cold, it's just the 'slip and end up on your arse with some kind of injury' I don't like.  Trying to fix a leg in plaster cast on a Ryanair flight is nothing something I'm wanting to encourage :)

Finally, an evening without snow fall.

Broke my spade clearing a path last night so had to dig into a 3ft snowdrift with a dust pan & brush so that i could open the garage door to get at my shovels/spades etc.

Practically had to use my pick axe on the road surface to smash up the ice this morning. After an hour or so at it, managed to get the car moved about 4ft. Gave up in the end and bummed a lift in to work.

T'was -10 in my car at 5:15am...brrr

A couple of days of snow at the weekend is fun & great for photography, but a whole week at 5am trying to dig paths/cars really is a pain. I envy those that haven't had much snow, really getting sick of it now :(

Yep, first day of the big thaw here today. Still plenty of snow around though, especially at work in the car park. Had a brilliant time at lunchtime on one of the empty car parks....handbreak-turn-tastic

Sadly, most of the front of the house guttering had fallen off due to the snow/ice. Hammer time this weekend.
