Another 2 inches over night. I can't remember the last time we had snow falling almost every day for week. Normally we have a fall then it gradually melts over the next 3-4 days.

In the last week I guess we've had 8-9 inches has fallen but at the moment I would think it's 5-6 inches deep. They've done a good job of keeping the roads clear :ymapplause:

Blimey, that's enough for anyone ! Talking of roads ,the ones in Kent and Sussex have hardly been affected this year,seems like the councils got their act together for once ! although of course none of the local/side roads have been touched so unless your destination is on a main road you've had it !

Yeah like 2 years ago we couldn't make the MaPS Xmas do because we had 12 inches of snow and couldn't get out of the village, however if we could have done the main roads were clear.

Could the occupant see over the wheel, and were they wearing string back gloves and a flat cap? Not forgetting the box of tissues on the parcel shelf.

This morning at 07:30 it is minus-5 degrees
Fahrenheit (or) minus-21 Celsius :D

At least there's No Wind!

It's coming in on what is called an "Alberta
Clipper" weather front.....

That's chilly, at the moment it's just above freezing and a little melting is happening, but I've just come in from the fields as the birds are starting to roost! ;)

I have actually experienced minus-35 Fahrenheit
(or) below minus-37 Celsius, right here in Dear Old
Bangor! So I suppose minus-5 actually IS sort of
tropical in a way :D

Oh, and minus-35 will Really Get Your Attention!!!!!!

Not to mention your nose hairs :)) !
