well we had now this morning... sent everyone home from work, and then it stopped and the sun came out:rotfl:

i am totally confused now as, earlier this morning, we wernt going to get snow tonight, and now they are saying we :confused:

went to the local co-op just to get some bread rolls, and it was heaving in there, dont think i have ever seen it so busy:rotfl:

i know some places have had it bad..... what's it like near you

  • Read on the sun news website that some people are expecting 40cm of snow.

    I did not thing we would get any here in portsmouth but its been snowing for nearly an hour now and laying :0)

    Im like a big kid, i really wanted to get my 4 aqnd 5 yr olds up and show them but that would just be crule of me as they would want to go and play in it.

    Hopefuly it will still be there in the morning and they can have a play then.

    It has been bad here for 2 weeks so far, frozen ground and snow on top. I have only been out twice and only a mile. I just don`t think it is worth the risk as in 1978 I was in a head to head with a lorry on an icy lane and my car was a write off. Today it is hopeless as we have deep snow on top of everything.

    lol, hence my full stockcupboard

    edit: my children used to love this sort of snow and it was wonderful to see them with rosy cheeks and covered in snow

    Fair bit of snow here in Newport/Risca.

    Got PM off to look after son (6 yrs old). Anyone know anywhere good to go tobogganing in Newport/Risca area? :-)

  • I had about 9 inches in my front garden in Newport yesterday morning (North-facing, with wind blowing into a cul-de-sac). It was lush! I got up before dawn and just hopped about in it before getting ready for work :)

    Of course, the silly neighbours built themselves a life-size snow car in the middle of the road and now it's all compacted into solid ice (3 inches thick on the pavement and well slippery). I'm still commuting into work by train but no-one's driving anywhere.
