We were supposed to get snow in Glasgow this afternoon, but apart from a brief passing shower, we've not seen any yet, and tomorrow is meant to be bright and sunny.

It's very white out here, I'm undecided whether I can bother to take my recycling bins to the top of the drive now.

No snow here yet ... although we did have a few flakes on Christmas Morning for about 20 minutes...

On saying that the wife said it snowed like hell for about 10 minutes about 1.45 pm as my Brother set off to walk home after the match 🙄

Yep Mother in law nearly got stuck at ours
I had to drive her back to Burnley
Fuelled by the Leeds anger I said I’ll ******* carry her if I have to.
Mayhem on the roads, up by the Marsden pub, Kings-causeway, cars were sliding backwards and sidewards
Think it was mainly bad driving I kept my distance and got through in 1 go, timing the traffic lights.
All good fun
Dropped the mother in law up Crown Point, saying this is as close as I can get you’ll have to walk from here, she said but haven’t you gone past Burnley, I said don’t be silly you know you’ve no sense of direction
It’s that way, left her walking to Bacup in her slip ons and a Cardy

No snow up here, cold dry and sunny, I'm just about to go out for a walk, ideal conditions to stretch the legs and get some fresh air.

Snow here in West Yorkshire. It was falling very slowly when I walked to the shop, looked to have speeded up slightly.

A small covering of snow overnight here, but it's the freezing fog that's been the real problem. Last night and tonight are what you would describe as peasoupers.

Goes without stating but be careful on the roads.

Just helped a neighbour who had got their car stuck and another neighbour walked down the street saying he'd just smashed his car into a wall going down Brunshaw Road

Woke up this morning to as deep a snowfall as we've had in our village for a few years.

Here are the views over my back garden, and from my front door.
