So after constant snow here yesterday, today is a snow day, I have a foot of snow in my back garden that has accumilated for a week.

East Devon (at least our little patch of it) has been utterly snow-free since Friday lunchtime. Thankfully we went up to North Devon for the weekend and saw some serious driftage and snow banks. smile

Cool, have fun. I think it's due to hit here overnight so we may be hitting the slopes tomorrow.

Might just be enough snow for sledging in the morning JammySplodger, we've had some reasonable snow fall in the last few winters but hadn't had much this winter up until today.

new thread as this one is so very nearly full now!

I think travelling will be tricky for you tomorrow Lottie!

I slid down a very steep dyke in Germany which bordered our back garden, in my trousers. I was younger then and enjoyed it, but my boots had to land on the wire fence and bend my kness so as not to injure my joints. Didn't do it again though. And it was sunny but well below freezing.

We never got any serious snow when we lived down there hellhasnofury, is sledging down the big ditch banks as good as our mates made out?

The Cambridgeshire Fens have some snow.

South Herts reporting in again.
It hasn't stopped all day, but little dog wanted to go out so donned all my gear on, opened the door and before I could put her lead on she was out jumping around like a rabbit all excited, and rushed out the back where there is a canal which she would have fallen into, if she hadn't stopped and come to me when I frantically called her, and then with relief I put her lead on.
There is so much more snow today despite the tiny powder-like snow "flakes", it was up to her neck< but she is small> Think we had 4" at least today so far.

Mid Norfolk here
A small amount of light snow at the moment.Is it likely to get heavier today?

nannynick Sun 20-Jan-13 15:19:55

Looked out of the window and the falling snow looks to be a bit thicker than earlier. Is it getting worse in Surrey or just looking that way?

lottie, that sounds about right. You can expect plenty more.

LottieJenkins Sun 20-Jan-13 15:12:48

We have had snow now solidly for the last two hours on the Norfolk/Suffolk border!!!

digerd Sun 20-Jan-13 11:58:09

Hasn't stopped snow drizzling - good description- can't call it snow flakes., more like powder. Been at it for nearly 3 hours now. +0.8 degrees c out. Definitely something going on as always remember big flakes here in South Herts. They looked lovely< qizzical face>
Little dog looked expectantly at the door, so took her in my arm and opened the door - she shivered and I shut the door again. So doing some washing instead - or the machine is. And various other household chores.
The cleared pathways and driveways are now covered with snow again.

So time to eat now as lunchtime.

Hope we get some more in Nottinghamshire !!!!!!

ajandjjmum Sun 20-Jan-13 10:41:56

It's like that here too Kitten - and was on Friday, but amounted to a few inches!

down here it is like snow drizzle - very fine and enough to cover my lovely gritted paths but not really amounting to much.

Mirage Sun 20-Jan-13 10:34:09

snowing heavily in Leicestershire again.

McPhee Sun 20-Jan-13 09:44:32

Snowing on the south coast again

At this rate I won't get DP back from Scotland sad

Dd not seen daddy for 3 weeks, AND I NEED A BREAK!!!!!!

ShakeWellBeforeOpening Sun 20-Jan-13 08:45:03

It has started in Surrey - abit like Friday morning - quite light but I expect it to become heavier.

ShakeWellBeforeOpening Sun 20-Jan-13 08:27:00

Well I suppose if the weather forecast is right and that it is moving up from SE and continent - if Kent has it now then I expect Surrey to start in the next hour or so.

madasa Sun 20-Jan-13 08:16:15

Snowing fairly hard here in Kent grin

We've had lots of the wrong sort of snow in Herts - too powdery to make a snowman and even snowball collapsed.

Great for sledging though. smile
