    The best of fillum I've seen is a Western Pacific rotary plough dumping the snow straight through a car windscreen which parked too close:)) .

    Here's this morning's scene taken from my window in t'Pennines looking towards Oakworth. It might as well be a black and white picture.

    Good covering here after last night impressive snowstorm with added thunder and lightning!

    The cat wasnt as impressed though - especially as it was up to his belly in places......

    Well the gritters have just been up and down our street so the prospect of more snow isn't so remote :eek:

    That view looked hauntingly familiar to me - my Mum used to live on Braithwaite Road, Keighley so I've travelled that road on many occasion!

    Hi

    More snow - still snowing in fact. Good job I didn't go to Bristol, I would not have got back.

    We did have to go out to get some eggs round about mid-day, so I took my camera with me. We have an egg farm up the lane on the road to the next village. They have a container for eggs at the end of their drive with an honesty box (£1.80 per doz)

    This is the main road to the next village, snow on ice, and some serious hills round the bend.

    Hopping over a style on the left gives me this view.

    and through a gate on the right

    P1010178b.jpg

    Yup, I think that classifies as rural.

    And finally, mission accomplished. Lady Dikitriki with the eggs. That's bread and butter pud sorted:)

    It was lovely weather for the walk, fairly bright and crunchy, no wind and very quiet.

    Cheers

    I too have been reduced to walking this weekend, partly because the Focus (aka cr@p car) needs the attention of the Station garage in Mach before it'll pass its MOT and partly because although we had a surprise visit from the gritter earlier in the week, they've only ploughed up to the usual limit of operations (the bus stop) in the village. Yesterday's shopping done by walking down to the bus.

    I like snow, now getting a fair amount here but small fine stuff, not big flakes (shame), just been out with the kids, great fun, right out here on the butt end of the UK we seem to be getting the least of it.

    Getting dark out now, best I can do as hand held in the light.

    Still snowing here in Northampton, in fact its been coming down at a constant rate since about 9 this morning. Managed to get a shopping trip in first thing, been watching the tyre tracks on the drive gradually disappearing from view since then...
    Tomorrow mornings drive into work at @ 6 is going to be interesting, the snow is predicted non-stop until then :confused:

    My bold, but that is my favourite bit about being outside with the snow around, the stillness which just doesn't seem to exists in any other conditions. You really are out in the sticks Richard, lovely photos :)

    Actually I think I can claim the least amount of snow - we haven't got any. The precious few millimeters that settled on Friday have long since melted away.

    Really? I thought it was quite thick up the North West side, usually you guys get hit pretty hard, most seems to be in the West and Home Counties this time mind, the lack of wind is helping around here because if we had any sort of breeze in this almost perfectly flat area then it'd be drifting pretty bad, especially as the farmers grubbed out all the hedges that protect the roads, no idea why as they weren't in their way, probably because its their responsibility to keep them trimmed back. No doubt they got a grant form the EU to pull them all up!

    Constant snow all day, had to take SGT Marsa home to Telford on the way back thick snow and being over taken by total Numptys doing 70mph. still snowing. Got to the Newton Road by us and let the carnage begin slippy, slid, slid and managed to stop from 20mph at a set of traffic lights, not good someones going to get hurt tonight, that was driving to the conditions:shit:.

    just the same for us on the Wirral - what little we had is thawing, so I've been told we're to the supermarket tomorrow to restock the larder in readiness for what we are promised for Tuesday.

    cheers

    Nothing in Glasgow, yet, but we're due to get it all day tomorrow throughout central Scotland.

    I did take a run out to size up the flaky white opposition earlier today:

    Not very much snow in Bergen, but it's been very cold - minus 9 yesterday - but otherwise the weather has been fantastic - cold but sunny for the last week. Makes a change from otherwise seemingly constant rain we've been having since June.

    Most of these are taken from my living room window, plus a couple from when I took the "wee girls" out for a walk.

    We live beside a tidal water which freezes quite regularly. When it gets a light covering of snow it has a quite ethereal look.

    From memory it was the UK govt that paid them to grub up the hedges and the EU that's paying them to put many of them back again (before all the topsoil blows away).

    Some gorgeous photos there guys. Thanks!

    Up here in north Norfolk, last week's snow was looking a bit threadbare though we've a light sprinkling with more, much more, to come tomorrow and Tuesday. When will it end?
