I want it to snow heavily like it did a few years ago, it was so bad no one in our road could move their cars, so I thought I'd invest in some Auto socks (the quality ones) they didn't arrive because royal mail couldn't get here, then it thawed out and I received my auto socks, since then it's never snowed in the last few years, how irritating!


I remember that, it was the same here, the buses were stopped before I left work and I didn't know until everyone else had gone home too, so I spent 3 hours in the freezing snow waiting for a taxi

I phoned my boss who didn't live that far away but he didn't answer and found the whole thing very amusing the next day

A few villages in the distance look pretty white here (Loch Lomond) but nothing in my actual village and we were supposed to get the brunt of it.

I hope we don't get a disappointing year again like last year, almost nothing at all

There WAS snow, for about 10 minutes, the stupid floaty tiny flakes that do nothing, and now its gone again

Woke up to some snow today in Birmingham. It was sprinkling late last night, but there was a good 2/3cm on top of the cars. It hadn't stuck on the roads though. It certainly does look pretty. :)

Here in Camberley, Surrey had a bit of a covering overnight but all roads were clear this morning. There seems to be flurries over the course of the morning.

Snowing here in the North East, the roads are wet so it doesn't seem to be laying much... we're already on an alert and have had an email off the local council advising it's going to get quite bad.

I hate it when it's like this, kinda in the middle.. there's not enough snow to close work and bring life to a standstill.. but enough to keep things moving slowly to a point it's just annoying as you still need to go about your day but it's cold, wet, rubbish drivers get scared, delays and so on.. i would rather it give us an absolute blizzard or just not snow at all.
