Aldershot had a few flakes first thing yesterday morning but that was it.

No snow in Lancashire yet but there could be this weekend.
My problem is at the bottom of our lane where we get water flowing over the road surface just at the steepest part (1 in 5 or so). There is a drop off of about 10 feet at one side here as well, so it's not nice when the water decides to freeze!
If we park down below it means a 3/4 mile walk to the house.

East Anglia ~~ snow in Norfolk, confirmed by enail from friend near Norwich yesterday, but forecast near East Coast mainly; though some may drift inland to here [Haddenham, Cambs]* by tomorrow afternoon. Beautiful, quite warm, sunshine at present, and heavy overnite frost gone; but will doubtless return tonite.

*Currently a newsworthy place thanks to new edition of Private Eye, where one of our villagers figures in Funny Old World, final item, for some - ah - distinctive topiary he has been engaged in!

Local press reports say we've been cut off twice this week here in Whitby, though I can't say I noticed. It is a fairly regular occurrence here, though usually further into the season.

We've certainly had a week of pretty bleak weather with the last 3 days swinging between rain, sleet, hail, and big wet snowflakes, all out of a very grey sky and cold winds out of the NE quarter mostly. The forecast is offering heavy snow today (only a bit so far) heaviest tomorrow, and then 2 more days of heavy falls.

Looking out I see we now have slightly less wind, with finer stuff drifting downwards, looks like it may start to lie more.

Winter draw(er)s on.

Exactly, Bonzo3legs, I also went to school in the early fifties, and it never closed. We walked quite a long distance, but totally loved it, snowballs and snowfights along the way. But we walked everywhere then, no cars at all. And we were dressed in enormous amounts of clothing, all woollen. Also, no central heating, so we were very hardy. I had ice on the inside of my bedroom window every morning. I have to say, I never felt particularly cold! (How times have changed!)

I find it incredible how little clothing teenagers wear to school even in sub zero temperatures - and never a hat! Presumably it is not "cool" to dress warmly. I wore long johns, a thick shirt and a jumper at work yesterday, and that's in a heated private house!

I'll be putting on extra layers to walk Bonzo shortly!!

The village here in Norfolk is so pretty, with snow-covered roofs and smoke rising from people's chimneys. I saw a little muntjac in the water meadows earlier. My garden has about 5cm of snow. A group of massive seagulls descended and hoovered up the bread I'd put out for the smaller birds. I think winter has its own joys, but I haven't got a dog to walk (which would be lovely), just 3 lazy cats! Does Bonzo like the snow?

Heaviest fall on the west of Scotland for thirty years...and no sign of it letting up.
All minor roads closed, this could last for at least a week maybe longer, temperature still below freezing even though the snow is falling.

Yes, that forecast was right, it has fallen intermittently for two days, with drier, finer, flakes as the cold increases. I gave up trying to clear the balcony on realising that there is a hard-frozen underlayer of icy stuff on which I cannot stand upright, and which only hard chipping with steel will shift. There's about four inches of looser snow on top.

Today the wind has veered easterly, even round as far as ESE, but looks like backing round to NE again as night falls, and staying that way for several days. This means more cold and higher seas, not good.

The local marine forecast suggests we can expect a further week of similar falls before it starts improving. The hardest November weather I have seen in the eleven winters I have had here.

I'm glad I don't need to leave town any time soon (AFAIK) as all the roads out will be decidedly unpleasant, though probably not impassable. Just going shopping locally will be a big enough pain.

"Isn't that true at any time Bonzo? :)"

Croydon town centre rarely has substantial snow but we live 5 miles to the south and 250ft higher which makes a big difference

Well we normally have very little, but we have had enormous blobs. Last winter we had 10 inches which stayed in our road for 2 weeks, causing absolute chaos in the surrounding area because the gritters could not get through initially. I bought 3 25kg bags of grit and salt for our own driveway and steps so my wife can get her car out.

I dare say that as usual, I will be the only one putting down salt in the road from the salt box, while the lazy gits in our road are glued to their televisions.

No more snow yet in our part of Somerset, but it's been so cold that some of the first dusting of snow a couple of days ago has stuck around. Temps are minus 4 or 5 all day and night. A wheelbarrow in the back garden which was full of water is now full of solid ice.

Temps are predicted to get down to minus 8 tonight, and more snow is predicted for Tuesday.

Had a dusting of snow on Friday night in East Lancs but nothing to worry about. Saturday night it went down to -9.0 and didn't go over -3.7 all day Sunday. Very still air and lovely to work outside though.
Had a flock of fieldfares on Saturday picking at the berries and a weasel playing in the snow on Sunday.
We moved back over to Lancaster in the afternoon just before some more snow caused havoc on the M6. 50/50 chance of having more before it's time for work in the morning!

We have between 6 and 8 inches. I have been waiting on calls to teach on supply but drew the line at accepting work across the county to cover for someone who couldn't get in because of the snow! All our local schools have been closed today and so far no sign of any grit on the roads so any attempt to drive would be silly. Only last week the news was talking about how the local authorities had bought in extra salt stocks to avoid last years problems but these don't seem to have been used at all. The motorways are still open but that's no good if you can't reach them.

Juneau, in southeast Alaska, has not had an early winter - I remember several years when we had very snowy Hallowe'ens). Last week we got our first light snowfall in downtown; they'd had snow several times about 10 miles away (Juneau is a long, narrow coastal town).

Today, it's snowing steadily and the forecast is for 4 to 6 inches. The city buses are on their winter routes and I noticed that the school buses are chained.

My little rescue dog - a Chinese Crested Hairless - pranced along in his sweater and overcoat for one city block then stopped, thought, looked up at me and said, Let's go home.

So we did.
