    Hope the mods don't mind me starting this.

    I got 3cm and for satisfaction I would say 2 out of 10.

    200M high in Northern England I should see more than that!

    5 since I don't base goodness of winter on the amount of snow that falls. I usually base it on how much sunshine we get & how interesting the weather is. A few exciting gales but not much sunshine gives it the fairly average mark. One ok snowfall but hardly any frosts or clear skies.

    Spring gets higher marks so far!

    Begrudgingly I will give the winter a rating of 0.5 out of 10.

    2 out of 10 as the Jan snowy spell did at least have 3 days of reasonable snowfall and a cover that remained all day away from tarmac surfaces, the December Anticyclone was a nice relief before Xmas, Feb however was very disappointing for Norfolk, we missed the frontal event.

    Worst winter this century I'd say.

    Only an inch with each fall that settled. I give winter a 3 - too many high winds and way too much rain for my liking but there was a good 2 week cold spell early on under a high pressure.

    4 oou of 10, there was a reasonable snow event over the 8/9th feb and the December fog was quite good but so far as wintry weather overall pretty poor with few frosts and more notable for the continued warmth.

    I am tempted to give it a very low number due to it being so mild and cold being so rare, but I've had more snow here this winter than average probably. The early Feb event gave me 7-8 inches and had about an inch the other day. So a total of 8-9 inches of snow which is a fair bit more than I have had in many past winters, so I shouldn't complain too much. So I'll give it a 6 out of 10.

    We only had 1 day in the entire winter with snow lying that melted by 11am and even that was only a half covering. Air frosts were well below average aswell. In a winter quarter on average we can expect 38 frosts here, this winter we got only 10 (7 of which were during February). Another shocking statistic was only recording 10 days with maxima under 5C, as well as every single month having several days with maxima over 13C. It was also the first winter to have all 3 months with an average above 6C here too.

    Using Mr Data's winter Index shows how poor it really was:

    2003/04: 46

    2004/05: 36

    2005/06: 53

    2006/07: 18

    So in a word, crap. Theres never been a winter more snowless here.

    Despite one week in February producing the lowest temperature and deepest snowfall in years, overall it was a disappointing winter with half the number of frosts normally expected. The snow means it gets a 3.

    But one week doth not a winter make ......

    We have 3 days of snow here this winter, which isn't bad for our parts. Ive rated a 6 because we got a decent return with a total of 30 hours falling snow equivalent to a total depth of 20cm, but the deepest depth of unmelted fallen snow in 1 fall was 5-6cm

    We had one day of snow, which didn't amount to anything and just a few frosty days.

    What I will remember most about this winter was how windy it was.

    Meh.

    I would like to revise my rating from the far too high figure of 0.5 out of 10 to 0.1 out of 10. I was being overly generous this morning. :cold:

    For Season 2006/07 snow-wise it scores 3/10, but the winter quarter would only score about 1 or 2/10. Two small snow events on 23 January and 7 February, with a thin dusting on 23 Janaury and 2cm on 7 February, melting straightaway in the sun. 19-21 March was much more dramatic, though, producing 3cm and some heavy snow and hail showers.

    Winter quarter 2006/07 scores 3/10 overall, because it was mostly snowless and with prolonged spells of homogeneous mildness, but sunshine was quite abundant at times during December, January and early February which brings the score up. Spring 2007, with well above average sunshine and a fair bit of variety so far, is currently on a very high score.

    Two moderate falls followed by sleet/freezing rain. Maximum depth was five inches last Friday/Saturday.

    Overall an awful first half of winter (temperatures reaching 22oC on January 7th) was compensated for by a colder second half. I estimate we had a total of 14 ice days, with the lowest maximum being -8oC in February and the lowest minimum being -12oC which was recorded in both February and March. The first week in March was notable for the maximum temperature of -6oC recorded on the 6th. The ice storm of the 16th was also particularly notable, as was the rain (albeit feezing) falling on February 14th whilst the air temperature was -7oC. All in all an interesting and varied winter, but lower than average snow totals.

    As snow is my favourite Winter weather and we have only had a few dustings here I had to give a mark of 1. :mellow:

    I have spent many Winters here over the years and this is without doubt the poorest for snow by some way although last year would also have been poor if March had been excluded.

    i didnt even get a dusting. as far as im concerned we didnt get a winter only a prolonged autumn which im sure many would agree. i gave the "winter" a very generous 2/10 because at least we had some big storms which provided some interest
