I've hardly seen any snow. Yet!
As Jason says, drive safely. In the best traditions of weather forecasting, I'll just say "don't go out unless you need to...…" :)

It's been snowing heavily for the last hour or so, but the road outside has been gritted and due to rain earlier it's not really settling on tarmac or concrete. The garden and car have got a nice covering though.

Just sat here working out our car shows :lol: It seems along way off but we have just over 2 months to go.

Take it easy if out and about :cheers:

I've just seen pictures of Cornwall in the news. That's "snow" joke for the people down there.

I think it's really bad how roads like the A30 get to this state in the afternoon when plenty of traffic is using it.
The councils know it's coming and have obviously gritted it so can't see why it's such a mess :? Traffic alone will keep it from settling for a while.
Our B road was gritted yesterday and is clear, and no were near as many vehicles use that.

Hardly any snow overnight so it's not too bad here. Just cold :(

We have had a very light dusting of snow during the night. I was expecting to see Will Smith in the garden, as my neighbour said he saw fresh prints :D
